Vernon Jones, running for Congress in Georgia’s 10th District, mocked Fauci for the number of vaccines that he has received, saying that he has received ’18 less doses’ than Fauci and still hasn’t tested positive for Covid.
I’ve probably received 18 less doses of the COVID-19 vaccine than Dr. Fauci and still haven’t caught COVID.
