Rep. Costantino says legislators should not be put ahead of elderly for vaccinations
STATE HOUSE — Rep. Gregory J. Costantino (D-Dist. 44, Lincoln, Smithfield, Johnston) is balking at a suggestion by Lt. Gov. Daniel McKee that members of the General Assembly should be given priority in receiving COVID-19 vaccinations.
“I would much rather see my shot go to an elderly person,” said Representative Costantino, while urging his colleagues in the House and Senate to do the same. “Except for those legislators who are elderly or vulnerable because they are medically compromised, I would much rather see those shots go to the elderly in the state — and I would like to see the future governor adopt that as official policy.”
Lieutenant Governor McKee is expected to become governor once Gov. Gina Raimondo is confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the new Secretary of Commerce.
