Thousands rally in DC against vaccine mandates

Thousands attended the “Defeat the Mandates” rally in Washington, D.C., on Sunday (January 23) to protest the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine and mask policies.

“They tell us to vaccinate ourselves endlessly and boost ourselves even though that single strategy has failed, is failing, and will continue to fail. It must stop,” Dr. Pierre Kory told a crowd outside the Lincoln Memorial. 

COVID-19 has killed more than 860,000 people in the United States in the two-year-long pandemic and has weighed heavily on the economy.

On January 13, The U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccination-or-testing mandate for large businesses – a policy the conservative justices deemed an improper imposition on the lives and health of many Americans – while endorsing a separate federal vaccine requirement for healthcare facilities.

Many U.S. companies have implemented mandatory mask-wearing policies to protect their workers, as have various municipalities and cultural organizations.

Masks remain polarizing. Biden, a Democrat, recently urged people to wear masks and noted that about a third of Americans report they do not wear masks at all. Many Republican-leaning states have no mask requirements. Some Democratic-governed states such as California have reimposed indoor mask mandates.
