“At the recommendation of the Office of the Attending Physician and the Continuity of Government plan, I received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.” Scott said in a Facebook post about his vaccination.
“I experienced no side effects – very similar to the flu shot!” Scott said about his experience.

Scott’s colleague, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, also received his shot Saturday, as reported by WPDE, thanking the nurses for administering the vaccine and the scientists for producing the vaccines.
“If enough of us take it, we will get back to normal lives.” Graham said in a tweet. “Help is on the way.”
Thank God for nurses who help people in need and know how to use a needle.
Thank God for those who produced these vaccines.
If enough of us take it, we will get back to normal lives.
