Faced with the huge number of U.S. citizens who are not getting vaccinated against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus either for fear of adverse effects or distrust in its effectiveness, the White House partnered with McDonald’s, Uber, and Lyft. Together they will promote messages that invite their customers to get vaccinated—even granting benefits and discounts.
The controversial strategy by the Biden administration in the face of the population’s rejection of vaccines against the CCP Virus seeks to encourage—through propaganda—those people who doubt vaccines.
The McDonald’s hamburger chain has announced that it is partnering with the White House to promote vaccination information even inside its coffee cups, reported CNN.
Beginning in July, U.S. customers will see redesigned McCafé cups and delivery box seal stickers with an optimistic “We can do this,” message, referencing that with vaccination “we can win the battle against the virus,” a slogan created by the U.S. health department.
In addition, McDonald’s also said it will unveil a billboard in New York’s Times Square this month with information about the vaccine.
Genna Gent is the vice president of global public policy and government relations for McDonald’s USA. She said in a statement released Tuesday, “McDonald’s is excited to be doing our part for the people we serve, providing them with simple information that can help keep them safe.”
Xavier Becerra, the health secretary, said in a statement that the public-private partnership “will help more people make informed decisions about their health and learn what steps they can take to protect themselves and their communities.”
Separately, President Biden, on Tuesday, May 11, announced a new program with Lyft and Uber that will offer free rides to anyone who goes to a vaccination site to get vaccinated.
As part of Biden’s goal to vaccinate 70% of the U.S. adult population with at least one vaccine by July 4, ridesharing giants Uber and Lyft will promote rides to and from tens of thousands of vaccination sites through their apps, the White House reported.
“People will be able to simply select a vaccination site near them, follow simple directions to redeem their ride, and then get a ride to take them to and from a nearby vaccination site free of charge.”
The vaccine promotion plan is expected to begin in approximately two weeks and last until at least the July 4 holiday.
Faced with an enormous number of reports of serious adverse effects from vaccines against the virus, including many followed by death, millions of people who feel healthy are opting not to get any of the vaccines available on the market.
A survey conducted by The Associated Press-NORC and published by Newsmax in March warns that 1 in 3 Americans refuse to get the vaccine, citing distrust of its possible adverse effects and the political and economic interests behind it.
