CDC Director Rochelle Walensky on Sunday said the Biden Regime is planning on providing “education and counseling” for unvaccinated police officers and ‘essential workers.’
“Let’s talk about mandates for adults. President Biden was asked about the quite controversial mandates for essential workers at his town hall this week. Take a look at his answer,” Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace said while showing a clip of Biden’s remarks during Thursday night’s dumpster fire town hall.
“Should police officers, emergency responders be mandated to get vaccines, and if not, should they stay at home or let go?” Anderson Cooper asked Biden to which he replied, “Yes and yes.”
“Now, mandates by government, by private companies of essential workers have generally worked…but as you know, there are cases of police officers or health workers or pilots are walking off the job rather than get the vaccine. Are you still full speed ahead on mandates for essential workers to get vaccinated?” Wallace asked.
Walensky said the Biden Regime will roll out a plan to ‘educate and counsel’ vaccine hesitant workers.
“We have seen that these mandates are getting more and more people vaccinated. Here’s what we know, the most disruptive thing that you can do to a workforce is to have a Covid outbreak in that workforce. That will most definitely not only send people home but it will send people to the hospital, and some may pass. What we know from the police workforce is there have been more deaths from the coronavirus over the last year and a half than all other causes of death for that workforce combined. So we believe it is very important to get these people vaccinated,” Walensky said.
“There is a plan, should these people not want to be vaccinated, towards education and counseling to get people the information they need so that they are feeling comfortable in getting vaccinated,” she added.
