Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Lindsey Graham was booed by Republican crowd after he suggested they consider getting vaccinated”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sen. Lindsey Graham is the latest in a long line of Republican politicians facing backlash from their own voters over the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

A crowd of Republican activists booed the South Carolina senator on Saturday after he suggested they "consider" getting the shot, video from the event shows.

"Well, I'm glad I got it," the 66-year-old then said. Graham received his vaccine in December and credited the shot with milder side effects when he came down with a breakthrough case of COVID this summer. 

Despite the derision from the crowd, Graham continued on, telling audience members that the vast majority of COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state are among unvaccinated people.

South Carolina's full vaccination rate falls well below the national average of 56% at about 48%, according to The Washington Post's vaccine tracker.
