CONTACT YOUR FEDERAL AND STATE LEGISLATORS: Tell them to reject door to door vaccinations! Click to contact your lawmakers now.
WASHINGTON, D.C., July 8, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Biden administration is doubling down on its intentions to go door-to-door to pressure Americans into taking a COVID-19 vaccine, calling it “absolutely” the government’s business whether someone is vaccinated and impugning those who have expressed civil-liberty concerns.
“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,” President Joe Biden said Tuesday, following the revelation that the administration had not met its goal of at least partially vaccinating 70% of the country by July 4.
People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.
But, everyone should agree on this point:
No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.
The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.
And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.
Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.
Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.
And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.
However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.
But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed this was not merely a figure of speech by explaining that the first pillar of Biden’s vaccination outreach plan is “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.”
The prospect of a representative of the federal government going straight to private citizens’ homes to urge them to make a specific medical decision sparked a swift backlash, with many framing the plan as intrusive and coercive:
When the Biden admin calls for “targeted” “door-to-door outreach” to get people vaccinated, it comes across as a g-man saying: “We know you're unvaccinated, let’s talk, comrade.”

The gov't doesn't decide who gets vaccinated. You do.
Do not submit to the fearmongers. https://t.co/NDCRUE3wCV

How about don’t knock on my door.
You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose.
Why is that concept so hard for the left? https://t.co/Fkv3kzNh6S

I just sent a letter to Biden demanding answers on his door-to-door vaccine checks.
The fed gov has no right to track the private health information of Americans or to intimidate people into getting the vaccine.

Biden administration Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra hit back in a CNN interview, arguing that because “the federal government has spent trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic,” it is “absolutely the government’s business” to know who is and is not vaccinated. Following backlash that comment generated, Becerra later said via Twitter that the administration “has no database” to track vaccinations:

Some comments I made today are being taken wildly out of context. To be clear: government has no database tracking who is vaccinated. We're encouraging people to step up to protect themselves, others by getting vaccinated. It's the best way to save lives and end this pandemic.

Psaki also denied keeping a database or having any plans to do so, while adding that “when people are critical of these tactics, it’s really a disservice to the country and to the doctors, faith leaders, community leaders and others who are working to get people vaccinated.”

To the frustration of Democrats and their allies, vaccination rates stalled after an initial flurry as many Americans remain concerned that the three coronavirus vaccines currently available in the United States have not been sufficiently studied for negative effects, while some harbor ethical reservations about the use of cells from aborted babies in some of the vaccine candidates’ development. Still others simply consider the vaccine unnecessary for them given COVID-19’s high survivability among most groups, low risk of asymptomatic spread, and research indicating that post-infection natural immunity is equally protective against reinfection.
While many officeholders and media figures blame online “misinformation” for lingering vaccine hesitancy, considerably less contemplation has been spent on how the government’s own actions contribute to mistrust, such as mixed messaging on various aspects of the pandemic, as well as the fact that clinical trials for the currently-authorized COVID-19 vaccines were performed in less than a year, when such trials traditionally take a minimum of two to four years.
One of the innovations of the Trump administration’s “Operation Warp Speed” was conducting various aspects of the development process concurrently rather than sequentially, but that does not fully account for the condensing of clinical trial phases — each of which can take anywhere from 1-3 years on its own — to just three months apiece.
