(CNSNews.com) - President Joe Biden has troubled expressing himself, even when reading from a teleprompter, as he did Tuesday in remarks to the nation about COVID.

Biden once again declared that this a "pandemic of the unvaccinated," yet he also noted that even vaccinated people are getting infected: "And we're seeing COVID-19 cases among vaccinated in workplaces across America, including here at the White House. But if you're vaccinated and boosted, you are highly protected," Biden said.

The president made his familiar plea for everyone to get vaccinated and boosted, and at the end of his remarks, he expressed hope for the year 2020 -- long gone.

Folks, I know we're all tired and frustrated about the pandemic. These coming weeks are going to be challenging. Please wear your mask in public to protect yourself and others. We're going to get through this. We're going to get through it together. We have the tools to protect people from severe illness due to omicron if people choose to use the tools.

We have the medicines coming along that can save so many lives and dramatically reduce the impact that COVID has had on our country. There's a lot of reason to be hopeful in 2020. But for God's sake, please take advantage of what's available, please. You're going to save lives, maybe yours, maybe your child.

Please take advantage of what we already have, OK. So, thank you.
