During a Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing Senator Richard Burr (R-Va.) asked the nation’s pandemic health leaders how many of their employees were vaccinated.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky dodged the question by noting they are encouraging employees to get vaccinated.
Tony Katz notes the irony.
“Very hard to tell America they should get vaccinated, if the people who are telling you to get vaccinated haven’t been vaccinated…”
