Joe Biden said that he was open to mandating a coronavirus vaccine during an ABC News town hall event in Philadelphia on Thursday.
Former Vice President Joe Biden was asked if he would take a coronavirus vaccine if the CDC approved one during the Trump administration.
He answered affirmatively, and moderator George Stephanopoulos followed up, asking, “Will you mandate its use?”

“Depending on how clear — there’s vaccines, they say, have a very positive impact and they gonna affect positively 85 percent of the American public. Or there’s others that say this vaccine is really the key. This is the golden key,” Biden said.
