Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announces he just received a COVID booster shot: 'It was an easy decision'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced during a floor speech on Monday that he has received a third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, immediately following President Biden doing the same thing.
"I'm glad to share that a few minutes ago I received a booster vaccination for COVID-19," McConnell said as he began his speech. "All throughout the pandemic, I've followed the best advice from experts, and especially from my own healthcare providers."
"It was an easy decision to receive a booster," he continued. "I'm a survivor of childhood polio from before vaccines... eradicated that disease here in our country, and around the world now. So I've been a lifelong champion of vaccinations."
Before moving on to stating the GOP's position on keep the government open, McConnell reiterated his call for Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
This is not the first time McConnell has strongly advocated for vaccines. In July, the senator began airing pro-vaccine radio ads in Kentucky in a bid to boost vaccination rates amid Republican hesitance.
