State Senator Darren Bailey (R-Louisville) released the following statement following the Senate Health Committee’s Feb. 11th subject matter hearing on COVID-19 vaccinations.
“While I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve on this committee, our first meeting was very disappointing. Our state’s vaccination program is an extremely important subject and this should have been an opportunity to get to the bottom of issues plaguing the process. Instead, we were told that multiple officials, including IDPH Director Dr. Ezike, who left after just a few minutes of questions, were too busy and had very little time to answer questions. Unfortunately all we ended up with was the same lack of transparency that has become a hallmark of this administration’s COVID-19 response.”
