Senator McConnell Calls on Americans to Get Vaccinated

Home state of Kentucky lags behind national vaccination average. 

Senator Mitch McConnell released a new public service announcement on Tuesday, calling on Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19. He recalled his childhood infection with polio saying, “As a boy, I fought polio. Today, America’s been polio-free for 40 years—thanks to vaccinations. We’ll beat COVID-19 with vaccines, too. Protect yourself and your family. Get vaccinated.”

This is the second such PSA that the senior senator from Kentucky has funded with his campaign funds. In Kentucky, which is the state Senator McConnell represents, only 48 percent of people are fully vaccinated. This is below the national average of 53 percent. Senator McConnell reiterated how it is “awfully important that we continue to push to get more Americans vaccinated” so that the country can move beyond the pandemic. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of Congress as they seek to support the country’s recovery from the pandemic.
  • For Senator McConnell as he advocates for coronavirus mitigation. 
  • For U.S. senators to seek God’s guidance on how to promote the health of the American people.
