President Joe Biden is launching a new educational effort to encourage Americans to get vaccinated as rates of vaccinations have fallen around the US and a new variant of Covid-19 threatens to cause new outbreaks.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Tuesday that the White House was embarking on a door-to-door effort to provide Americans with information about the safety and efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccines currently available, as well as the danger presented by the Delta variant.

Ms Psaki said on Tuesday that the campaign would include “targeted, community-by-community, door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring they have the information they need about both how safe and accessible the vaccine is.”
