Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff sent a letter to Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine and Gov. Tom Wolf asking that members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, statewide elected officials, and appointed state officials be removed from Phase 1C of the state’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan and placed in line with the general public. In the letter, Benninghoff stressed the importance of elected officials putting the well-being of their constituents first. While the letter points out the latest state COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan makes more Pennsylvanians eligible for the vaccine, it includes government officials in Phase 1C with at-risk Pennsylvanians with pre-existing conditions and others. Benninghoff wrote that was simply not acceptable.
