After failing to meet his administration’s goal of getting Americans to receive at least partial COVID–19 vaccinations, President Joe Biden proposed going door to door to encourage people to get vaccinated. While Texans have expressed their disapproval of this idea, Gov. Greg Abbott has been silent.

The Biden–Harris administration set a goal of having 70 percent of Americans receive at least a partial COVID–19 vaccination by July 4. They missed their goal by 3 percentage points.

On July 6, Biden discussed how the administration “is going to devote the remainder of the summer to special focus on five ways to make gains in getting those of you who are unvaccinated, vaccinated.” He added the administration will be shifting from “centralized mass vaccination sites.”

“We’re going to be putting even more emphasis on getting vaccinated in your community, close to home, conveniently, at a location you’re already familiar with,” he said.

Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes door to door, literally knocking on doors, to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus.

He said the point is ensuring communities hit hard by the Chinese coronavirus “have the information and the access to get vaccinated.”

Earlier that day, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki described Biden’s plan to increase vaccinations as follows:

Targeted, community-by-community, door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring they have the information they need on how both safe and accessible the vaccine is.

Psaki said the other four parts of the plan include a “renewed emphasis” to get COVID–19 vaccines to more primary care physicians, “stepped up efforts” to get vaccines to pediatricians and providers who serve “younger people,” making vaccinations more accessible for employees, and expanding mobile clinic efforts.

Texans expressed their disapproval of the door-to-door plan.
