US President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine order “non-American”: Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy
“My administration is aggressively identifying all the tools at our disposal to protect the individual rights inherent in all Alaskans,” the Republican said in a statement.
Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy has said President Joe Biden’s effort to demand millions of American workers get vaccinated against COVID-19 is “ill-conceived, divisive and anti-American.” âAt a time when we are called to work together, forced medical procedures go against our collective sense of fairness and freedom,â the Republican said in a statement.
âMy administration is aggressively identifying all the tools at our disposal to protect the individual rights inherent in all Alaskans. The statement did not describe what that might imply.
Mr. Dunleavy faced off against the Biden administration on resource development issues. Mr Dunleavy has faced criticism in Alaska for failing to impose masks or for failing to implement a new disaster declaration to deal with a recent increase in COVID-19 cases. Rather, he called on lawmakers to act on legislation to address staffing issues raised by healthcare facilities.
In his statement on Friday, Dunleavy said it was “clear from the data and empirical evidence from last year that the vaccine is the most effective way to fight COVID-19.” From what we see in our hospitals, the very sick are mostly those who are not vaccinated. “As governor and as someone who has had COVID and been vaccinated, I will continue to recommend that Alaskans speak to their health care providers and discuss the merits of the vaccine based on their individual needs. health care, âhe said.
