Missouri Attorney General Schmitt’s office corrects story, says campaign paid for trip—not the state
October 26, 2021
Over the weekend, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnel pushed for Americans to get vaccinated against Covid-19 after making a TV PSA (public service announcement).
In the advertisement McConnel mainly focused on vaccine-hesitant Republicans. In Mitch McConnell’s second PSA, he again pointed to his experience as a young boy surviving the polio disease as he has done in the past to urge Americans to get the injection against Covid-19. “As a boy, I fought polio. Today, America has been polio free for 40 years-acknowledgement of vaccinations. We’ll beat Covid-19 with vaccines too. Protect yourself and your family, get vaccinated.”
McConnel told CNN he used his own money from the reelection campaign because it’s “awfully important that we continue to push to get more Americans vaccinated.”
McConnel’s advertisement and mention to the polio vaccine could be considered truthful to many americans, however, if you get the polio vaccine, the measles vaccine, or chickenpox vaccine (ETC) you are immune to that disease/virus as he points too, however if you get the Covid-19 vaccine you can still get the virus as recent studies have shown.
