On Sunday night, Vice President Kamala Harris, who has unabashedly supported vaccinating Americans in order to protect them from COVID-19, warned that in order to end the pandemic one of the goals was to “protect the vaccinated,” triggering criticism on social media.
Harris tweeted, “By vaccinating the unvaccinated, increasing our testing and masking, and protecting the vaccinated, we can end this pandemic. That’s exactly what we are committed to doing.”
In October 2020, one month before the presidential election, Harris was asked, “If the Trump administration approves the vaccine, before or after the election, should Americans take it and would you take it?”
Harris answered, “If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it. Absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it.”
Harris’ tweet about “protecting the vaccinated” elicited a plethora of tweets slamming Harris:
