...Why it matters: Graham emphasized that the mildness of his symptoms is due to being vaccinated. If he had been unvaccinated his symptoms would be "far worse," he said....

Of note: Despite the attention given to them, "breakthrough" COVID-19 cases remain exceedingly rare.

Hope he has an easy time of it and comes through as a strong advocate for vaccination and other public health measures.

Miss Lindsey, like Mr. Trump, will soon be able to claim that their erratic behavior is caused by lingering COVID effects on their theoretical brains. But they've been bat (doodoo) crazy for decades.

I can't stand the guy but, at least, he credits the vaccine for his mild symptoms too bad he won't speak out about others of his party, who have nen vacinated themselves, but still won't. When he grows a pair, and speaks out agains't against an evil regime like trump, then and only then will I have any respect or sympathy for that piece of filth. REalize, thousands, more accurately millions will die because of his partisan hack style of politics. If ye doesn't die of Covid, he should die in prison.
