“Because of American ingenuity and innovation, we will soon have two safe and effective vaccines approved for the fight to end this pandemic.

“Today on the advice of the Office of the Attending Physician, I received a COVID-19 vaccine, following the example of Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, and Surgeon General Jerome Adams in showing our fellow Hoosiers they can be fully confident these vaccines are safe and effective. 

“I will continue working with federal, state, and local officials to ensure vaccine doses are distributed in our communities as efficiently as possible so that together we can defeat this invisible enemy.”


Walorski’s statement on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is available here.

Information from the Office of the Attending Physician about the availability of the COVID-19 for Congress for the purpose of continuity of government operations is available here.

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
