Biden Urges Docs to 'Reach Out' to Unvaccinated Patients About a COVID Shot

President lays out six-point COVID plan, including vaccine mandates covering 100 million workers

WASHINGTON -- President Biden on Thursday announced a six-point plan for battling the COVID-19 pandemic and appealed directly to physicians for help in getting more Americans vaccinated.

"To the nation's family physicians, pediatricians, and general practitioners: you're the most trusted medical voice to your patients," Biden said in an address in the White House State Dining Room. "You may be the one person who gets someone to change their mind about being vaccinated. Tonight, I'm asking each of you to reach out to your unvaccinated patients over the next 2 weeks, and make a personal appeal to them to get the shot. America needs your personal involvement in this critical effort."
