Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said he hopes to halt Johnson & Johnson deployment
The COVID-19 vaccine will not hinder efforts to get more people to get vaccinated against the virus.
McConnell, on returning to Kentucky for the two-week vacation that the Senate just ended, appealed to Republicans, especially Republican men, who showed evidence as a among the most hesitant groups, get vaccinated. He blame the resistance for “confusion” sown in the 2020 elections.
Asked during a weekly press conference in Washington if he was concerned a pause announced Tuesday would make people more reluctant to vaccinate, McConnell said, “I hope not, because We have two other vaccines that are not in dispute. And almost every state has, I believe, two remaining states.
MConnell once again said that everyone should get an injection to help the United States achieve herd immunity and that goal is getting closer and closer.
