WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Reed has been vaccinated against COVID-19.







The Republican Representative for New York’s 23rd Congressional District announced in a tweet he took the first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine on Saturday.

He says the vaccine is “safe, effective and painless,” and the pandemic has reminded him that the nation is filled with great Americans like healthcare heroes and medical innovators.







“Working together, we will continue to distribute these modern miracles and bring an end to COVID-19,” Reed wrote on Twitter.

The vaccine is administered in two doses, with the second given 29 days after the first.













The Office of the Attending Physician says that members of the House of Representatives and Senate are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. In addition to Reed, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer received the vaccine this weekend as well.

Last Monday, a New York State hospital was the first in the nation to administer the shot.
