Unlike many other Congress members who are lining up to receive the shot, Rep. Ilhan Omar stated on Sunday that she won't be getting the COVID-19 vaccine immediately with other members of Congress.

Omar argued that lawmakers are "not more important" than the people "who are making sacrifices everyday," citing frontline workers and teachers.

Omar argued in a tweet that it's "shameful" for lawmakers to get the vaccine ahead of people she described as "making sacrifices everyday," particularly frontline workers.

Dr. Brian Monahan, the attending physician of Congress, last week encouraged lawmakers to get the vaccine and has started to administer it to several members.

Among the long list of high-profile Congress members that have taken the vaccine include Sens.

Other Congress members have echoed the calls and criticized their colleagues for supposedly "skipping" or "cutting" the line to get the vaccine. »
