Jill Biden, the first lady, began the new year by urging Americans to be vaccinated against both the Chinese coronavirus and the flu.
Jill Biden made the comments on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on Dec. 31.
“Take great care of yourself this year. Go get that COVID vaccination and your flu shot,” she urged, pointing to the camera and eliciting a giggle from President Biden, who nodded in accord and mimicked her gesture toward the camera.
“You should pay attention to her,” he replied, motioning to his wife.
It’s been well over a year since Joe Biden made misleading statements regarding the coronavirus vaccine, and now Jill Biden is encouraging even more people in the United States to be vaccinated.
On July 21, 2021, Biden took part in a CNN town hall with Don Lemon and promised Americans that if they had the vaccine, they would not get the illness, despite previously stating otherwise.
Biden said “But wait, there’s one more thing. I don’t think we talk about it enough with you. One final point is that we do not believe that any virus — including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and lethal in terms of non-vaccinated people — is immune to the different doses that people are presently receiving. They’re OK, and you’re fine. You will not — you will not contract COVID if you receive these immunizations.”
Ironically, the virus infected the quadruple-vaccinated president a year later.
In the latter part of that year, in December 2021, Biden made yet another erroneous assertion. This time, he stated that vaccinated people could not become infected with the virus, which was another lie.
“Everyone speaks about freedom and not having to take a shot or a test,” Biden remarked at the time.
“And guess what? Consider patriotism. How about you get vaccinated so you don’t transfer the sickness to anyone else? What do you think? What exactly is the big deal?” He continued.
In a poll conducted in November by The Economist and YouGov, one in four respondents admitted that they had not been vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus.
