Jen Psaki: We will be going door-to-door to Americans who have not been vaccinated pic.twitter.com/S70VjPojfj

Venezuela had a history of something similar and it was the efforts to control Yellow Fever and similar. It took over a decade, mostly under dictatorial governments of the time! They went house to house and sprayed with DDT and by the time Democracy had set in, people still allowed heath workers to come in and spray because it was the thing to be done.
The big events were the Vaccination Drives for Small Children and were done in a different and smart manner. They were done twice a year and they came to your neighborhood, not door to door. There was at least 2 weeks of Radio advertising announcing where the location would be and that they would not leave till there were people with kids waiting. I even recall pamphlets being distributed door-to-door and that was as close as they got
Even in a South American country recently coming out of a dictatorship, they understood that the “knocking on door” would backfire enormously. People reacted well to these measures, a lot of kids got vaccinated and the children’s mortality rates plummeted.
Eventually with the expansion of better medical services and availability of transportation so people could have access to the vaccines almost anytime, these drives were used only in remote locations with little or no healthcare services.
The Biden administration cannot shake the image of weakness and it is trying desperately to appear butch. This is why they are going crazy overcharging and treating Jan 6 people worse than Gitmo detainees. It is not a Healthcare initiative but a “we have a full ball sack” demonstration attempt.
It rings hollow.
