Iowa’s Lieutenant Governor, Adam Gregg, took to Twitter over the weekend to encourage men in Iowa to get their COVID-19 injections.

“Fellas, it’st time for us to step up and get the vaccine,” he wrote. “Thank you to Dallas Clark and the wonderful group of Siouxland leaders that joined me to get vaccinated (Friday). Getting the shot is the best thing we can do to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our community.”
