JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves on Wednesday praised the Trump administration’s efforts to make a coronavirus vaccine available to the public in the next few months and asked residents not to allow political divisions to stop them from getting vaccinated when the time comes.
“If you are anti-Trump, don’t let this stop you from getting a vaccine,” Republican Reeves said during a press briefing Wednesday.
Reeves has raised concerns about the politicization of the pandemic from Republicans and Democrats multiple times in recent weeks. He said Wednesday that politics, particularly from politicians on the left who dislike Trump, is “infecting” the scientific process of work on a vaccine.
