Millions more people across the U.S. now may get COVID-19 booster vaccine doses after leaders of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) authorized mix-and-match vaccines and provided long-awaited guidance to people who received Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccines.
President Joe Biden’s commitment to donate 500 million COVID-19 vaccine doses (sufficient to fully vaccinate 250 million people) was great news, but with billions of people in desperate need and some countries not having any access to COVID-19 vaccines, America can and should do far more.
Two Colorado Republican lawmakers, state Sen. Vicki Marble of Fort Collins and state Rep. Lori Saine of Firestone, are hosting the third and final “Vaccines and Health Care Choice Summit” at Colorado’s capitol Monday.

Two Colorado Republican legislative leaders are hosting an all-day “Vaccine & Health Summit” at the state capitol on Monday, Oct. 28.

The trouble is, Wilburn really doesn’t seem to know much about anything, be it public policy, history, or, in this case, vaccination.
We don’t have former State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt to kick around anymore, but rest assured he is still out there spreading ignorance. It’s too bad there are so many Republicans in the state legislature who are equally ignorant, such as State Sen. Tim Neville (R-Littleton) and State Sen. Laura Woods (R-Arvada).
