President Joe Biden used his remarks at the Pardoning of the National Turkey to once again promote the COVID-19 shots. Biden, who is fully vaccinated and has had a couple of bouts with the virus anyway, said two years ago we “couldn’t even safely have Thanksgiving with large family gatherings.”

Get your flu shots as well. This winter can be a — much happier than recent holiday seasons, but you have to do your part. Please visit vaccines.gov. Decide what you’re going to do.”
