Biden Warns Unvaccinated Americans Will ‘End Up Paying The Price’ MONA SALAMA MAY 17, 2021 Biden is attempting to push Americans who don't get vaccinated by threatening that they will "pay the price."President Biden on Monday issued a threatening warning to Americans who refused to get vaccinated, saying they will ultimately “end up paying the price” despite the fact the significant progress in the number of coronavirus cases is down for the first time since the pandemic began last year.
In remarks from the East Room of the White House, Biden touted that coronavirus deaths were down 81 percent to the “lowest level since April of 2020” before putting the blame on those who are unvaccinated in cautioning that the progress could be “reversed.”
“Today, for the first time since the pandemic began, cases are down in all 50 states. First time. That’s right: Thanks a lot to the hard work of so many people, COVID cases are down in all 50 states. Now, I can’t promise that will continue this way. We know there will be advances and setbacks, and we know that there are many flare-ups that could occur,” Biden warned.
“But if the unvaccinated get vaccinated, they will protect themselves and other unvaccinated people around them. If they do not, states with low vaccination rates may see those rates go up — may see this progress reversed. Ultimately, those who are not vaccinated will pay — end up paying the price. The vaccinated will continue to be protected against severe illnesses, but others may not be if you’re not vaccinated,” Biden added.
