Testa Says Murphy Wrong to Compare Being Unvaccinated to Drunk Driving

Senator Michael Testa said Governor Phil Murphy was wrong to say that being unvaccinated is “akin to drunk driving.”

“Governor Murphy is absolutely wrong to compare being unvaccinated to driving drunk, especially when Omicron is both infecting and being transmitted by vaccinated people at high rates,” said Testa (R-1). “It’s telling that he’s now resorting to increasingly extreme rhetoric to try to justify his unpopular and unscientific vaccine mandates. Republicans are constantly accused of not following the science, yet it’s the governor who repeatedly refuses to accept data that doesn’t support his executive orders.”
