City Dwellers Unable to get Vaccinated at Home Travel to Rural Towns and Red States

People in congested, Democrat-run cities are having a hard time getting the vaccine

Americans across the country are rushing to get the coronavirus vaccine, but those in congested, Democrat-run cities are having a hard time. The Washingtonian reports that even after three months since the vaccine rollout, “about 10 percent of DC’s population is fully inoculated against Covid-19” putting it “behind almost the entire country.”

Their solution is to search “often redder” parts of the country so as not to be forced to continue to wait. Entire Facebook groups have been dedicated to finding locations for city dwellers to get their shots. DC-based group “District Vaccine Hunters” consists of residents sharing information.

“Willing to drive to Danville, VA? Looks like they have more doses than they can use” posted one member. “I just made an appointment this Saturday for my husband at the Rite Aid in Marietta!” wrote another, referring to Marietta, Ohio.

Another 40-year-old DC resident who doesn’t want her name used for fear of backlash was able to make an appointment at a FEMA site in Cleveland. “For me, being in a group that won’t be eligible in DC for a while, and being able to drive to a place where I am eligible or where there’s an abundance – I look at it as I’m freeing up vaccine in DC for someone who needs it and who can’t do that” explained the anonymous resident.

Some people are even going so far as to be a self-described “vaccine hunter” such as one woman who believes she has helped roughly 30 people go so far as to get appointments for their vaccines. She gets the majority of her intel by monitoring Facebook groups and learning when places like CVS and Safeway release new batches of appointments.

This California Town Declared Itself ‘Constitutional Republic’ in Defiance of COVID Vaccine Mandates

As a constitutional republic, leaders “pledge to fight mandates they say go too far” reports the San Francisco Gate.

One California town is utilizing the U.S. Constitution and rejecting Governor Gavin Newsom’s mandate that requires schoolchildren to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Oroville, California has officially declared itself a “constitutional republic.” As a constitutional republic, leaders “pledge to fight mandates they say go too far” reports the San Francisco Gate.

Oroville’s Vice Mayor Scott Thomson is the father of two young boys and says the mandate for children was the straw that broke the camel’s back. “He believed the government had no right to tell him what to put into his, or his children’s bodies. Many of his constituents agreed when it came to pandemic mandates” writes the SF Gate.

Thomson felt he and his constituents were left with no choice, and so he declared Oroville a constitutional republic. The declaration passed by the City Council reads:

“Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens”

Thomson has said that “the desire here is dialogue” rather than sweeping mandates. Oroville is a city of only 20,000 but is rapidly growing, as in recent years it has determined itself to be a sanctuary of place “otherwise exempt from some liberal ideal.”

Oroville is not the first California town to be rebelling. Two years ago, the town of Needles became a “sanctuary city” for the Second Amendment. The move was in defiance of California’s strict gun control laws.

Other towns such as Atwater and Coalinga declared themselves as a “sanctuary city for business” and a town where all businesses are essential, as a consequence of the state’s strict pandemic shutdown orders.

Doocy Grills Biden On His Promise To ‘Shut Down The Virus’

Published

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden was questioned about a recent op-ed written under his name in USA Today in which he laid out a plan to “beat [COVID-19] back.”

The op-ed said, “We are going to fight COVID-19 not with shutdowns or lockdowns – but with more widespread vaccinations, boosters, testing and more. We will beat it back with science and speed, not chaos and confusion – just as we did in the spring and again with the more powerful delta variant in the summer and fall.”

Reporters noted that the language appears to be a shift in the goalposts after Biden repeatedly promised to “shut down the virus” during his presidential campaign last year.

“So on COVID policy, it seems like the administration is starting to soften some of the language,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said. “There’s this new op-ed where you talk about COVID, ‘We are going to beat it back.’ Are you no longer going to ‘shut it down?’”

“We got to beat it back before we shut it down,” Biden responded. “Look, it’s going to take time worldwide. In order to beat COVID, we have to shut it down worldwide. In the United States of America. We’re doing everything that needs to be done to take care of the American people within our borders.”

 

As Fox News reported, “Biden routinely promised on the campaign trail that he would ‘shut down’ the virus if elected. Biden regularly asserted that it was former President Trump’s ‘ineptitude’ that ‘caused the country to have to shut down in large part,’ and assured voters that his administration would take care of the pandemic more efficiently.”

However, more than 350,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 since President Biden’s inauguration day – far more than the number under the Trump administration – and even Biden is warning that COVID-19 numbers are about to surge again.

“Experts say that COVID-19 cases will continue to rise in the weeks ahead this winter, and that we will see more omicron cases here in the United States in the days, weeks and months ahead,” Biden’s USA Today op-ed said. “I know that Americans are exhausted from COVID-19 and want to know when it will end, and the new variant is adding to that unease.”
