Press Release, Congressman Chris Jacobs

ORCHARD PARK – Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) released the following statement regarding President Biden’s announcement of vaccine mandates.

“We have come a long way from the beginning of Operation Warp Speed to now over 75% of U.S. adults having received at least one dose,” Jacobs said.

“I believe the Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and I encourage my constituents to consult their doctor about getting vaccinated – this a personal medical decision that should be made between a citizen and their physician.

“I am opposed to the President’s mandates and believe he has overstepped his authority in announcing them. In addition, I disagree with the President pitting vaccinated Americans against their unvaccinated peers. This serves no public health interest and only further divides an already fractured nation.”
