Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got her first dose of the coronavirus vaccination and has since been criticized by her colleagues, according to The Western Journal.

‘It’s now clear that we don’t have enough vaccines for everyone and there is shortage of supply, we have to prioritize those who need it most. That’s why it’s disturbing to see members be 1st to get vaccine while most frontline workers, elderly and infirm in our districts, wait,” Omar tweeted.

“It would makes sense if it was age, but unfortunately it’s of importance and its shameful. We are not more important then frontline workers, teachers etc. who are making sacrifices everyday. Which is why I won’t take it. People who need it most, should get it. Full stop,’ she tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez said, “If it was within [individual] power to ‘give’ the vaccine to someone else, I would! But according to these protocols, there’s a chance it could have just been stored. There’s also a real risk in this age of misinfo of how it would be weaponized if leaders refused to take it en masse.”

Tulsi Gabbard said, “I had planned to take the vaccine but will now stand in solidarity with our seniors by not doing so until THEY can. I urge my colleagues [in Congress] who are under 65 and healthy to join me.”

Nancy Mace said, “Congress shouldn’t be putting themselves first in line for the COVID-19 vaccination when the average American can’t get it. For as long as the vaccines are limited, we should prioritize healthcare and frontline workers, and every person at greater risk, especially the elderly. I’ll wait my turn in line with the rest of my constituents when the vaccine becomes available to the rest of us. And yes, I will get it.”

Rand Paul said, “It is inappropriate for me – who has already gotten the virus/has immunity – to get in front of elderly/healthcare workers,” he tweeted. “Same goes for AOC or any young healthy person. They should be among last, not first.”

“Why do healthy members of Congress get to jump ahead of the more vulnerable to get the vaccine. Is a Capitol Hill essential worker more valuable than people on the front lines & elderly?” she tweeted.

Omar emphasized, “our frontline workers who’ve made the sacrifice to make the country run should be the priority, people who’ve been disproportionately impacted by this virus should be the priority.”
