Tulsi Gabbard Blasts CDC Vaccine Rollout: I’m Not Getting Vaccine Until All Seniors Get It

On Monday morning, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) blasted the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for their planned guidelines on rolling out the vaccines for the coronavirus, asserting, “Heartless, arrogant, unelected CDC bureaucrats have decided that the lives of elderly Americans just don’t count.”

Gabbard also stated she would not get her vaccine, as other members of Congress have, until seniors across the nation get theirs. She stated:
 

For months the CDC has been telling us that the elderly are the most vulnerable, but now they are recommending that 100 million so-called “essential workers,” which means healthy people working at everything from liquor stores to telephone companies, that they can get the vaccine before our grandparents can; that members of Congress like me, we can get the vaccine before at-risk seniors can. People like my aunt, who is imprisoned in her own home because of the danger that if she catches the disease, she could die. This is immoral and bad health policy. I had planned to take the vaccine but will now stand in solidarity with our seniors by not doing so until they can. I urge my colleagues in Congress who are under the age of 65 and healthy to join me.
 
A CDC advisory panel voted Sunday overwhelmingly that Americans over the age of 74 and certain groups of frontline essential workers receive COVID-19 vaccines as the second-highest priority group.
