We have new assurances that by July or August the U.S. government will have secured an adequate COVID-19 vaccine supply in order to fully immunize our population, or at least 80 percent, considered by some a threshold for interrupting SARS CoV2 virus transmission. Achieving such high rates of coverage will not be easy. To begin with, the U.S. does not have an adult national immunization program and current rates of vaccine hesitancy especially among African American and conservative groups are a challenge.

That’s not to mention the most significant development which is a freshman class entering Congress in 2021 that represents perhaps the most diverse in party history with the most … [Read more...] about Exclusive: After 2020 Gains, Kevin McCarthy Eyes House GOP Majority, Speaker’s Gavel in Midterms
