Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux Welcomes HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra

Lawrenceville, GA — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) hosted U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra for a roundtable on the importance of COVID-19 vaccination and health equity. Congresswoman Bourdeaux was joined by local leaders in the health community to discuss access to quality, affordable health care, COVID-19 vaccines, and eliminating health disparities in her community. 

“The refusal to get vaccinated is coming at the cost of loved ones around us, people who are immunocompromised, our health care workers, and let’s not forget it’s further delaying our economy’s ability to fully open back up,” said Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux. “It is imperative that we now get this Delta variant under control, and I know Secretary Becerra and his team are united in this effort to do everything they can to get Americans vaccinated.”
