Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday night that he will receive a COVID-19 vaccine “in the coming days.”

McConnell made the announcement in a statement posted to Twitter, where he also expressed confidence in the vaccine’s safety.

“Because of government continuity requirements, I have been informed by the Office of the Attending Physician that I am eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, which I will accept in the coming days,” McConnell (R-Ky.) said.

The lawmaker said in the statement he was “disappointed” at results of a public poll of American adults showing some hesitation toward the drug.

“As a polio survivor, I know both the fear of a disease and the extraordinary promise of hope that vaccines bring. I truly hope all Kentuckians and Americans will heed this advice and accept this safe and effective vaccine,” he said.
