President Biden Just Issued This One Message to 40% of Americans

The pandemic isn’t over yet.

On Monday, President Joe Biden revealed that COVID-19 cases are continuing to decline in all 50 states, a huge milestone in the pandemic. However, the national health crisis isn't over yet. In fact, he issued an important message to 40 percent of Americans who still have yet to get vaccinated. Read on to hear what he had to say—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Had COVID And Should Tell Your Doctor.

"Ultimately Those Who Are Not Vaccinated Will End Up Paying the Price"

While President Biden applauded the hard work of Americans in effectively reducing the infection rate, he "can't promise that we'll continue this way," he revealed. "We know there will be advances and setbacks, and we know that there are many flare-ups that can occur, but if the unvaccinated get vaccinated, they would protect themselves and other unvaccinated people around them." 

If these Americans don't get vaccinated, "states with low vaccination rates may see those rates go up, may see this progress reversed," he pointed out. "Ultimately those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price."

"We still have tens of millions left to vaccinate, but we are making significant progress," he continued. "In fact, when tomorrow's vaccination numbers come out, they'll show that 60% of Americans have received at least one shot. The light at the end of that tunnel is growing brighter."

"Vaccination Protects You as Well as Being Masked"

Not only is the infection rate lower, but deaths are down by 81 percent, and the economy is growing fast, according to Biden. "Progress is undeniable, but we're not done yet. And some of the hardest work is ahead. We're still losing too many Americans, and we still have too many unvaccinated people in America," he continued.

"Last week the CDC announced that if you're fully vaccinated, you no longer have to wear a mask," he said. "The science now shows that your vaccination protects you as well as being masked or better than being masked. So you can protect yourself from serious illness from COVID by getting vaccinated or wear a mask until you're fully vaccinated. Either way, you're protected." He also asked Americans to "work together" to meet the target goal of getting 70 percent of Americans vaccinated with at least one shot by July 4.
