Meeting with members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team

WASHINGTON – U.S. President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that COVID-19 cases were rising even at the White House as he urged unvaccinated Americans to get vaccinated and others to get booster shots.

“Unvaccinated are taking up hospital beds and crowded emergency rooms and intensive care units,” Biden said at the White House as he met with his COVID-19 response team.

“So, please, please, please get vaccinated now,” he said.
