Newsom stands behind Biden's new Covid vaccine requirements as he fights California recall
The governor, who is in the final days of fighting an attempt to recall him from office, also used Biden's announcement to draw a sharp contrast with Republican Larry Elder, his top opponent in the Tuesday election. Newsom and Elder have been sparring over Covid for weeks, with Newsom pledging to keep up his stringent rules to fight the pandemic while Elder promises to reverse many of the Democrat's orders should he become governor.

"I broadly do. I support the President's intentionality. I support his call to finish the job," Newsom said in response to a question from CNN. "We have the solution to this pandemic. Now we have to complete the task, we have to finish the job. And that is what the President asserted, a little more formally. I applaud him for that."

... The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that people who have had the virus should still be vaccinated, and many doctors believe the immunity gained through vaccination is likely stronger and lasts longer than the immunity achieved from previous infection.

Newsom said Biden's announcement was "profoundly consequential," in part, because of the contrast it provided between him and Elder.

"You can't have more contrast and more consequence with this election to have a governor on the other side of this ballot that would be joining, that will be joining the other Republican governors and pushing back against the lifesaving interventions to address this pandemic, to eliminate mask wearing in our public schools, putting our kids at risk and their education risk," Newsom said. "I think the President expressed a frustration many of us have."
