ATLANTA (September 10, 2021) | Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan released the following statement on President Biden’s recent mandate:

“President Biden’s vaccine mandate only served to harden the partisan lines around an issue that requires all of us working together and not against one another. I believe the vaccine is safe, effective and the only real way out of this awful pandemic, but mandates have not and will not be the answer, as President Biden has previously stated before reversing course yesterday. Forcing hard-working Americans to choose between mandated personal health decisions and a paycheck will neither reduce vaccine hesitancy nor move this country in a positive direction.  Let’s all work together to redouble our efforts to get more Americans vaccinated through genuine leadership not anti-business mandates.”
