Harris highlights COVID-19 vaccination safety, efficacy in SC event to kick off tour

Vice President Harris on Monday touted the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine on the first stop of her tour to convince skeptical Americans to get the shot.

“The vaccines — let me say it again — are safe. They are safe. And they are free. And they are effective. And it is that simple. If you are vaccinated, you are protected. If your community is vaccinated, COVID rates in your community will go down,” Harris said in Greenville, S.C.

Harris said, in her remarks at a COVID-19 vaccination mobilization event at the Phillis Wheatley Community Center, that misinformation is a major barrier to getting more Americans to take the vaccine.
