Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson went on a ABC’s “This Week” and downplayed American’s concerns about Joe Biden sending pro-vaccine foot soldiers door-to-door.
George Stephanopoulos asked:
How do you respond to some of your fellow governors who say they don’t want the federal government a part of this?”
Asa Hutchinson responded:
Whenever we have a low vaccination rates we want all the help we can in order to accomplish a mutual goal and increasing vaccinations. Long before President Biden said that, we have community organizations that’s helping us. We have churches going into homes. We have people that go in to those that are bedridden so they can have access to the vaccine. There’s nothing dramatic about what the president said in itself. No one wants an agent knocking on a door. But we want those that do not have access otherwise to make sure they know about it and having the information. Not everybody goes on the internet. Not everybody has that access. How do you get information to them? We want our churches involved. we want our communities, organizations, if it means going into a community door-by-door and letting them know of this, then that’s okay.
