The U.S. Government has plans to forcefully vaccinate all its citizens for COVID-19.

The U.S government has devised a plan to quickly make a vaccine accessible throughout the country, but it does not intent to forcibly vaccinate people

The U.S government has devised a plan to quickly make a vaccine accessible throughout the country, but it does not intent to forcibly vaccinate peopleThe documents, revealed by the Department of Health & Human Services in coordination with the Department of Defense, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), provided a strategic distribution overview along with an interim playbook for state, tribal, territorial, and local public health programs and their partners on how to plan and operationalize a vaccination response to COVID-19 within their respective jurisdictions. Also, the document highlights the goal to achieve the principal purpose and objective of Operation Warp Speed (OWS), where the federal government is procuring hundreds of millions of doses of safe and effective vaccines and has contracted with McKesson for purposes of vaccine distribution, such that no American will be charged for either the COVID-19 vaccine or its distribution.

Further, OWS has now made substantial progress toward the COVID-19 vaccine, with multiple candidates in Phase 3 clinical trials. The agencies are looking at Jan. 2021 for a potential beginning of a vaccination campaign. However, it remains possible that this could come later this year.

However, nowhere has the U.S government mentioned its intent to vaccinate all its citizens forcefully. With no credible sources to corroborate such a claim, it can be regarded as baseless.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
