Back to Full Health

Distributing a Safe and Effective Vaccine


Through public-private partnerships established under Operation Warp Speed, a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is within reach in record time.

Through my work on the Energy and Commerce Committee, we took a lead role in passing bipartisan legislation to crack down on illegal robocallers.

In response to our legislation, the Federal Communications Commission took action this week to protect consumers from this type of robocall scam.
