LANSING, Mich., December 15, 2020 – After months of media skepticism, Americans began receiving COVID-19 vaccinations yesterday thanks to President Trump and Operation Warp Speed.
Despite a media driven narrative that President Trump would not be able to deliver a vaccination by the end of the year, a Michigan-based production plant began shipping out the Pfizer vaccine across the nation this past weekend. According to the Detroit News, “The rollout of the Pfizer vaccine… ushers in the biggest vaccination effort in U.S. history” with the Chief Science Advisor to Operation Warp Speed, Dr. Moncef Slaoui, noting this was “a remarkable achievement of science, academia, the industry ecosystem and the U.S. government, working together.”. The first vaccinations were administered Monday morning to front line workers across America.
“The distribution of the Pfizer vaccine across America is an unprecedented and historic moment for our nation, thanks to the leadership of President Trump and Operation Warp Speed.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “The media tried everything to discourage Americans from believing President Trump’s promise of a vaccine by year’s end, yet once again, President Trump proved them wrong. Thanks to President Trump’s leadership, this pandemic will come to an end and we are grateful for his administration’s efforts.”
