Rep. Mary Franson, R-Alexandria, sent Gov. Tim Walz a letter urging him to prohibit door-to-door COVID-19 vaccination efforts in Minnesota today. Her letter echoes the concerns of many across the country in the wake of President Biden’s call for a door-to-door information campaign to encourage more Americans to get vaccinated.
“Minnesotans do not want to open their front doors to find unsolicited information about the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Rep. Franson. “Personal health decisions should be made between a patient and a doctor, not between a patient and the government.”
With the vaccination rate plateauing across the nation, the White House wants to continue to vaccinate and provide accurate public health information including the effectiveness of the vaccine and accessibility to them, even if that means knocking on your door.
