Biden Pushing Vaccines For Small Kids: ‘Families Will Be Able To Sleep Easier At Night Knowing Their Kids Are Protected’
Speaking on Thursday, President Biden pushed forward in his drive to vaccinate children ages five through eleven with the COVID-19 vaccine, despite polls showing that nearly half of American parents oppose the idea.
Biden boasted, “Families will be able to sleep easier at night knowing their kids are protected.”
