At a press conference on Tuesday, he said he was “perplexed” by some people’s reluctance to get vaccinated.

“We need to keep preaching that getting the vaccine is important,” said McConnell, who survived polio as a child. “We need to finish the job. Part of it is just convincing the American people of the importance of doing this. Everyone who knows the subject says that if you get the disease, chances are pretty good you’re not going to die from it if you get vaccinated.”

But when a reporter asked him about Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and other Republicans stoking skepticism about COVID-19 vaccines, McConnell demurred.

“I can only speak for myself,” he said.
