– Upon the release of Gov. Tom Wolf and Pennsylvania Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine’s fourth different COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, Rep. Aaron Kaufer (R-Luzerne) voiced his frustrations concerning their overall regard of high-risk Pennsylvanians.
Under the latest plan, high-risk Pennsylvanians have been moved to Phase 1-C of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, which is only just before the general public can receive the vaccine.
“I am absolutely appalled that the governor and Dr. Levine have shown such little care and low prioritization towards residents who have high-risk medical conditions when developing their COVID-19 vaccine plan,” said Kaufer. “There is absolutely no reason why our most vulnerable Pennsylvanians should be in the same category of our state legislators when it comes to having access to the COVID-19 vaccine. This has to change. I call upon the governor and Dr. Levine to immediately move high-risk Pennsylvanians up the ladder to get the COVID-19 vaccine sooner.”
