President Joe Biden shrugged off personal freedom as a reason to refuse the COVID jab to scold people who are hesitant to get the shot.
“Everybody talks about freedom and not to have a shot, or have a test. Well, guess what, how about patriotism? How about making sure that you’re vaccinated so you do not spread the disease to anybody else? What about that? What’s the big deal?” Biden asked.

All of the Democrat’s civilian vaccine mandates have been stalled in federal courts and are not to be enforced until further legal proceedings, but that hasn’t stopped the Biden administration from encouraging businesses to keep forcing the COVID jab on its employees.
In addition to completely disregarding concerns about personal freedom in a world with rising COVID-induced tyranny, Biden’s comments also indicate that he still believes people who have had the shot can’t spread the virus. This directly contradicts the data, which suggests that “people who get vaccine breakthrough infections can be contagious.”
“COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing infection, serious illness, and death. Most people who get COVID-19 are unvaccinated. However, since vaccines are not 100% effective at preventing infection, some people who are fully vaccinated will still get COVID-19,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website states. “…People with vaccine breakthrough infections may spread COVID-19 to others.”
These breakthrough infections are on the rise in the United States as COVID variants blow through communities. Local and state health department data from around the nation indicates that more and more vaccinated people are not immune to catching a strain of COVID.
In Massachusetts, health officials reported more than 11,500 new breakthrough cases since last week. In total, the state has seen more than 100,000 COVID cases in patients who were reportedly vaccinated against the virus. The same trends are occurring in Tennessee, where vaccinated people “account for almost one in four new COVID cases statewide since Nov. 1.”
