Experts Warn The Emergence Of "Two Americas" As Delta Variant Looms And Vaccine Rates Drop

As the July 4th date looms, a date in which President Joe Biden set to have at least 70% percent of adults across the country vaccinated, millions of Americans have yet to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, there are 10% of cases in the U-S which have been attributed to the deadly Delta Variant. It is said that this new strain is more deadly than the original strain. Experts now raise concerns of what could be a "national divide". According to a CBS/ YouGov POLL,52% of Republicans said they were partially or fully vaccinated, and 29% said they have no intention of getting a vaccine. 77% of Democrats said they were already vaccinated, with just 5% responding that were resisting the vaccine. President and CEO of University Hospital and former New Jersey Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal, joined Cheddar to discuss how states around the country can work to get unvaccinated Americans to roll up their sleeves.
