Protesters gather in Elmira to express frustration over President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate

People continue to protest against the vaccine mandates in public places in Elmira.

The vaccine mandate was announced Thursday during President Joe Biden’s speech and would require 100 million Americans to get the vaccine.

Sunday afternoon, protesters gathered outside of Wisner Park to say they wanted the right to choose.


Many people expressed frustration in feeling like they have no rights and will be forced to either get a shot they do not want or lose their job.

Others expressed worry that the mandates will only grow worse as masks were mandated followed by the vaccine.

Some Republican governors have said they will sue over the vaccine mandates and Biden appeared disappointed in them, saying he wants to raise the vaccination rate to diminish the spread of COVID-19.
