Americans who refuse to get mandated Covid-19 vaccinations may lose benefits such as food stamps (WIC) and rent assistance, according to a document from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Center for Health Security.

According to the document, one of the top members of the "Working Group of Readying Populations for COVID-19 Vaccines" is Luciana Borio, MD, a prominent member of Joe Biden's Covid-19 taskforce.

Borio recommends recruiting celebrities and social media influencers to speak to "specific audiences" about the urgency of taking the vaccine.

The document says "bundling" vaccines with food stamps would be, "a way to build trust" among low-income people such as "Blacks and minority communities."

The taskforce will target grocery stores, community centers, schools, nursing homes, and elderly daycare centers to reach populations that may not have access to the vaccines.

"In some cases, it also may be acceptable and feasible to deliver vaccinations via home visits by community health nurses" who go door-to-door to vaccinate people.

The paper acknowledges Blacks and minorities have been lied to and abused by the U.S. government in the past.

Celebrities and influencers will be recruited to deliver "a salient and specific message repeatedly" to "reinforce a unified message about COVID-19 vaccination."
