JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A U.S. senator from Arkansas announced Saturday morning that he got the vaccine to protect against COVID-19.
In a post on Senator John Boozman’s Facebook page, he said he decided to get it following the recommendation of the Office of the Attending Physician.
He added that this puts us on the path to normalcy.
“We can all be proud of the American ingenuity and investment that has resulted in this lifesaving vaccine,” Boozman said.
