Urges Iowans to Get the COVID-19 Vaccine
Monday, December 21, 2020
History will look back at 2020 and find many lessons and silver linings to unpack.
The loss of more than 300,000 American lives will be mourned for years to come.
Operation Warp Speed launched a historic public-private partnership. It’s delivered a lifesaving vaccine in record time, shattering scientific benchmarks along the way.
For the last nine months, Americans have pulled together in shared sacrifice to do their part.
As the COVID-19 vaccine make its way into communities across the country, I encourage Iowans to keep pulling together.
When public health officials say it’s your turn to get the vaccine, roll up your sleeve.
I’ll be doing the same when it’s my turn.
Getting immunized is the only way we’ll beat the virus and get back our way of life. 
History will show America turned the page on the pandemic when all of us rolled up our sleeves.
