“It’s simple: we have a pandemic among those who are not vaccinated, just like that,” Biden said during a conversation with citizens organized by CNN.
He stressed that the statement is simple and basic: “If you are vaccinated, you will not be hospitalized, you will not die.” According to the US president, among the 10,000 who recently died from the coronavirus, 9,950 were not vaccinated.
He expects that soon it will be possible to vaccinate children under 12 years old. “I don’t tell scientists what to do,” Biden said, noting that a decision on vaccination for children will be made when there are sufficient grounds for it.
According to him, the use of vaccines for children can be approved by the beginning of the school year.
