"If you break the rules, be prepared to pay," Biden said. "Show some respect."
"My message to unvaccinated Americans is this: what more is there to wait for? What more do you need to see? We have made vaccinations free, safe, & convenient. The vaccine is FDA approved. Over 200 million Americans have gotten at least one shot. We have been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and the refusal has cost all of us," Biden said.
"To the vaccinated, I understand your anger towards the unvaccinated," Biden said.
