March Argall Report: Argall Event Focuses on the Covid-19 Vaccine Rollout in Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG – The March edition of the local TV program hosted by Senator David G. Argall (R-Berks/Schuylkill) focuses on his recent telephone town hall that focused on the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in Pennsylvania.

“The goal is to protect people’s health as much as humanly possible and at the same time, whenever possible, get people back to work,” said Senator Argall. “This is not a Democratic issue; this is not a Republican issue. This is a health issue.”

The event hosted by Senator Argall featured healthcare professionals from St. Luke’s University Health Network, Lehigh Valley Health Network, Geisinger/St. Luke’s, Tower Health, and Penn State Health. Over 3000 residents from Schuylkill and Berks Counties joined in for the conversation on the phone or by streaming the event online.

“We cannot treat this issue lightly. The first two people that died in Schuylkill County – I knew them for decades. I understand the terrible impact that this pandemic is having—on our health and on our local economy,” Senator Argall continued. “I want to thank all of the medical professionals across Pennsylvania who are making sacrifices to keep us safe. Their dedication deserves our gratitude.
