Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has a message to Republican-leaning men to get vaccinated.

He made that plea Tuesday after touring a vaccine distribution center in Kentucky.

This comes after a mid-March poll showing 49% of Republican men say they won't get a COVID vaccine, and 47% who supported former President Trump will refuse to get vaccinated.

"I'm a Republican man. As soon as I was eligible to take the vaccine, I did it," said McConnell.

Senator McConnell also encouraged mask-wearing until the pandemic is in check.
