She spoke the truth.
During Biden’s Congress speech, CNN Medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen gave Biden a piece of her mind by stating that his actions is what is confirming people’s hesitancy of getting the coronavirus vaccine.
She said, “I also do think that the president missed the biggest opportunity he’s had yet of overcoming vaccine hesitancy. Imagine if he had said everybody attending has to be fully vaccinated, at the moment they come to the door, they show their proof of vaccination, they can take off their masks. They can hug one another. They can sit close together. I think that would have been such a powerful demonstration of how safe and effective the vaccines are and how that’s what it takes for us to return to pre-pandemic normal. And instead, I do fear that what happened today looked like it happened in late 2020, several months ago, before we had the vaccines. And I think it’s going to perpetuate this narrative of, what’s in it for me? What’s the purpose of getting vaccinated if nothing changes?”
