Remember the old days when liberals insisted that it was ‘your body and your choice?’
That’s all over now.
The FDA has approved the Pfizer vaccine, and almost instantly, Joe Biden used this as an excuse to urge companies to mandate the vaccine for their employees.
Biden urges employers to require Covid vaccination
President Joe Biden on Monday pressed businesses and public leaders to implement vaccine mandates after the federal government issued its first full approval of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The Food and Drug Administration early Monday approved Pfizer’s two-dose vaccine for people 16 and older, a step beyond the emergency-use authorization under which the shot has been available since late 2020.
“I’m calling on more companies in the private sector to step up with vaccine requirements that will reach millions more people,” Biden said in remarks at the White House. “If you’re a business leader, a nonprofit leader, a state or local leader, who has been waiting for full FDA approval to require vaccinations, I call on you now to do that — require it. It only makes sense to require a vaccine to stop the spread of Covid-19.”
But the president’s call for schools and business to require vaccination — especially as the Delta variant fuels an increase in hospitalizations — comes amid stiff resistance to mask and vaccine mandates by some Republican governors and lawmakers who say they are unnecessary.

Minorities in America are the most unvaccinated group.
Again…I have no fundamental problem with the policy, as long as people admit this is inordinately going to affect minorities.
