But Republicans have accused Democrats of being the ones undermining faith in a vaccine.
“The fact that they refuse to say ‘yes, I will take the vaccine,’ when public health experts have already said it is untainted by politics is reckless and wrong,” the Trump campaign said in a release this week.
Added Steve Guest, the Republican National Committee rapid response director: “Democrats like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are risking American lives by casting aspersions on the coronavirus vaccine for political gain.”
Jeremy Adler, a spokesman for the House Republican Conference, said this week: “Will other Democrats condemn these irresponsible comments, or will more members of their party dabble with the anti-vaxxer movement?”
And House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., as Republicans are rolling out their pitch to voters to retake the House, slammed Harris over her vaccine comments.
