In advocating the reopening of congressional offices, McCarthy cited a statistic: As of March 10, roughly 75 percent of House members have been fully vaccinated, or will have been by the end of the week of March 8.
This number implies that one-quarter, or roughly 25 percent, of members of the House have not been vaccinated. Some reports suggest that this remaining quarter of representatives either refuse to receive the vaccine or are not eligible due to health conditions.
