(Washington, DC) - Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is stepping up his efforts in pleading with Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Speaking with reporters, McConnell explained shots need to get in the arms of Americans quickly. McConnell warned if that doesn't happen, this fall will look like last year when it comes to coronavirus.
He also urged folks to not listen to those sharing "demonstrably bad advice." The Kentucky Republican added it never occurred to him that getting shots in arms would be difficult.
The plea from the long-time senator comes just a few days after CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said it's clear this is becoming a "pandemic of the unvaccinated."
