Rep. Claudia Tenney Claims, Twice in One Day, That COVID-19 Vaccines are Killing People

As of October 22, nearly 220 million Americans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and over 6.8 billion doses have been distributed worldwide, demonstrating the safety of the vaccines in real-world applications, not to mention their effectiveness in preventing severe illness and hospitalization.

DCCC Spokesperson Abel Iraola

"Claudia Tenney continues to spread dangerous medical disinformation that threatens New York and the country's pandemic recovery. Vaccines have proven to be incredibly safe and overwhelmingly effective in preventing severe illness and hospitalization, particularly in Tenney's home state. The congresswoman's continued insistence on spreading disinformation to burnish her brand as an extremist Republican is endangering the health and economic recovery of her own constituents."
