As Hurricane Ian barrels down on America, President Joe Biden is taking criticism for his comments last year telling Americans to get vaccinated to protect themselves during hurricane season.
Those comments resurfaced this week and went viral.
“Let me be clear,” Biden said. “If you are in a state where hurricanes often strike, like Florida or the Gulf Coast or Texas, a vital part of preparing for hurricane season is to get vaccinated now. Everything is more complicated if you are not vaccinated in a hurricane or natural disaster hits.”

Joe Biden just told everyone in the line of a hurricane to get vaccinated to avoid complications.
Mr. President, these people have bigger fish to fry, and the only complications for the unvaccinated are the ones you’re creating.

Remember everyone, as this hurricane makes landfall, the best way to protect yourself against the hurricane is to get vaccinated. Joe Biden said so. And he’s totally not an idiot @POTUS

Biden’s message to Floridians, and all Americans in the track of the hurricane, is get vaccinated. Are you paying attention yet?
