Tennessee senators pen open letter to boost COVID vaccinations
Days after canning the state’s vaccine commissioner, members of the Tennessee General Assembly are now pushing a pro-COVID shot agenda in the midst of the number of growing delta variant patients which is now more than 500.
Sixteen of the 27 members of the Republican Senate Caucus signed an open letter to residents asking them to get vaccinated against the virus. The state currently has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the US and the Southeast.
Bristol Senator Jon Lundberg lent his signature to the letter but fellow member Johnson City’s Rusty Crowe did not.
Vaccine guru Dr. Michelle Fiscus was dismissed from her post after several GOP members accused her of marketing the serum to children on social media.
