WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell implored unvaccinated Americans Tuesday to take the COVID-19 shot, issuing a stark and grave warning of a repeat of last year’s shutdowns if people refuse to protect themselves from the coronavirus.
McConnell urged Americans to ignore the “demonstrably bad advice” coming from pundits and others against the vaccines. As caseloads skyrocket, he noted that nearly all the new virus hospitalizations in the U.S. are among people who have not been vaccinated.
“If there is anybody out there willing to listen: Get vaccinated,” McConnell, R-Ky., 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 has been one of the most outspoken members of his party in urging vaccinations to stop the virus spread, speaking often in his home state of Kentucky of the need for people to get the shot.

Yet again we are left to wonder what value the Republican Party serves?
Are you threatening the American people Turtle?
Here it comes.
Even with 100% vaccination, this fall/winter will be a record flu season
Shove it McTurtle.
Rush Limbaugh could’ve said to get vaccinated ASAP and I would still be skeptical.
How does threats and intimidations work here?
Do these idiots really think I’ll swallow their lies based on hostile lies and high pressure menacing tactics?
I’ll do it for a million dollars. The government has it
Hmmmm! I’ll take shut down for a $100.00 *itch.
Mitch, there ARE alternatives.
Try thinking independently from the DeepState narrative
Then there will be some more breakthrough cases, and we’ll get more shutdowns anyway, because that’s how commies and neo-statists roll!
Zilch, nada, zip, snake eyes. Just another reason to be glad I left the GOP last October.
If he would just stand up against this nonsense all will be well. Even IF everyone gets “vaccinated” then there will STILL be mandates. Right now they are just trying to blame everything on conservatives.
let assume for argument that he truly believes in the safety of the vaccines and isn’t part of some bizarre plot to kill us all.
What would you expect him to say? He is trying to save those who are not vaccinated and save the country from another round of lockdowns. Isn’t this what you would “want” him to do? Again assuming he truly believes the vaccines work and are safe.
He is too old to run again so he can say whatever the establishment wants.
Are you vaccinated ?
