Republicans want Mayor Gray to rescind the mandate to administer COVID-19 vaccines
On Monday, two highest Republican congressmen demanded that Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser reverse her order requiring anybody aged 12 and up to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter several establishments in the nation's capital.
"By needing anybody over the age of 12 to present proof of vaccination to enter most indoor establishments in the District, students who are not vaccinated will be barred from eating at restaurants, meeting indoors for meetings, enjoying entertainment venues, and more," Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) and Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), the top Republican on the House Subcommittee on the Environment, wrote.
"Most Americans, especially our children, should be accepted in the District," they said, "but your broad mandate keeps them out of their capital city."
Vaccine regulations, the lawmakers contended, are unnecessary due to the development of the Omicron virus type. Millions of Americans who were vaccinated have been affected by a version of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
