This really seems like a no brainer, and I'm sure many will complain, but it's a smart move.

The Biden administration has set up a mass Covid vaccination site for the thousands of Afghan evacuees arriving at Dulles International Airport, a White House official said Friday.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is in charge of the site at the nearby Dulles Expo Center in northern Virginia, where many evacuees are being temporarily housed before being transported to military bases, the official said.

Evacuees are tested once they arrive at the airport, and those who test negative are transported to the Expo Center, where they are offered the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The Department of Health and Human Services is administering the shots, while the State Department is providing translators.

Politically this is a smart move.

Imagine if the refugees from a war torn nation, that the U.S. helped create, are more vaccinated than "true Americans".

I think some people's head's are going to explode.
