U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris promotes the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus vaccine to minority groups whose vaccination rates are lower than average by urging pro-vaccine activists to knock on doors and convince those who don’t want to be vaccinated.
On Friday, June 18, Harris traveled to Atlanta to urge Americans who have not yet been vaccinated against the CCP Virus to get their doses, while the federal government set a vaccination target for July that is unlikely to be reached.
The Biden-Harris administration has set a goal of 70% of adults being vaccinated by July 4. But it is not getting anywhere near that goal, in part because of hesitancy among black and minority communities.
“There are some people who say, ‘I will not be vaccinated under any circumstances,'” Harris said in remarks at Clark Atlanta University, a historically black university.
The vice president gave volunteer activists plenty of advice on overcoming objections to the vaccine, which other voices took as pressure or harassment toward something that is ultimately a personal decision.
“For example, if you knock on the door and someone says they ‘don’t have the time to get the vaccine’—because people are busy,” Harris said. “They’re just trying to just make it through the day.”
“Or they say that pharmacies are never open when they do have time, well, let’s address that,” she said.
“Because now, you can let them know that pharmacies across our country are keeping their doors open for 24 hours on Fridays in June, including today,” she added.
“Because we need to meet people where they are! Some folks are working two jobs.” Harris said. “And what if they say they can’t miss work?”
“Well, you can tell them that there are employers across the country who are offering paid time off for their employees to get vaccinated, and we want to encourage and challenge more employers to do the same,” she said.
“Other folks, who need time to recover after they get the shot, right? And may need a little moment where they need some help with their kids,” she continued.
“So we have partnered with the YMCA, with KinderCare, and the Learning Care Group to provide free childcare for both vaccination and recovery. We need to meet people where they are.”
“You might run across people as you’re out talking and knocking, folks might say, ‘I don’t have a car’ or ‘there’s no public transportation or bus that comes by my house.’”
“And that’s fair, because how can we expect them to get to a vaccination site?,” asked the VP.
“Well, now, as part of the solution, rideshare companies are giving free rides to and from vaccination centers,” Kamala Harris said.
With less than two weeks to go before Biden’s deadline, some 148 million people, or 52 percent of the eligible population, have received two doses and are considered “fully vaccinated,” according to the CDC.
Some people’s fear or hesitancy to get vaccinated can be attributed to the available data reporting deaths, or side effects that experimental (emergency-approved Phase 3) vaccines have caused in people of all ages.
VAERS is the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System of the CDC, and records can be checked there.
According to the VAERS, the number of adverse events reported in the last week, among all age groups following COVID vaccines, exceeded 350,000.
Meanwhile, the latest VAERS data after COVID vaccination between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 11, 2021, recorded 1,117 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis (inflammation of the heart) across all age groups in the United States. And of the 1,117 reported cases, 686 cases were attributed to Pfizer, 391 cases to Moderna, and 36 cases to Johnson & Johnson’s COVID vaccine.
While data from the same period for 12- to 17-year-olds show 6,332 adverse events in total, including 271 rated as severe, plus seven deaths.
