Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell urged Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19 on Tuesday while warning of a repeat of last year’s rising caseloads and shutdowns if people refuse to protect themselves from the coronavirus.
McConnell also urged Americans to ignore ‘demonstrably bad advice’ coming from pundits and anti-vaxxers. As cases skyrocket, he noted nearly all new virus hospitalizations nationwide are among people who have not been vaccinated.
‘If there is anybody out there willing to listen: Get vaccinated,’ McConnell said at his weekly press conference at the Capitol.
‘These shots need to get in everybody’s arms as rapidly as possible or we´re going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don’t yearn for – that we went through last year,’ he said. ‘This is not complicated.’
McConnell said on Tuesday that ‘it never occurred to me’ that there would be ‘difficulty getting Americans to get the shot’ after they were quickly developed for use in the United States.
