'Reckless and irresponsible': Tony Evers blasts Ron Johnson's plans to highlight adverse reactions to COVID vaccines


Wisconsin's governor blasted the state's senior senator Friday for giving a platform to six people who claim they've had adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccines instead of promoting the millions who haven't reported serious side effects and avoided sickness and death.

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers called Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson "reckless and irresponsible" after Johnson announced plans Friday to hold a news conference bringing together people who claim to have had serious health complications in reaction to the vaccine.

"The #COVID19 vaccine is safe and effective and based on years of science and research. Every time you suggest otherwise, you’re jeopardizing the health and safety of the people of our state and our economic recovery," Evers said in a tweet.

Johnson, who has also criticized vaccine mandates and advocated for alternative and unproven treatments for COVID-19, said the Monday event in Milwaukee will allow people from across the country to tell their stories and concerns he said have been “repeatedly ignored” by the medical community.
