WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – a member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies – today released the following statement applauding the first COVID-19 vaccine being administered in Kansas:

“This is an historic moment and marks the beginning of our return to normal as the first COVID-19 vaccine was administered in Kansas. The incredible success of Operation Warp Speed is an example of the exceptionalism that exists within American science and medicine. While we still have a long road ahead, Kansans will soon have access to this safe and effective vaccine.

“Additionally, I encourage all Kansans to continue to take precautions to keep yourself and your families safe, including wearing a mask, practicing social distancing and frequently washing your hands. I also want to thank the health care workers who continue to care for Kansans across our state throughout this pandemic.”
