MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin plans to hold a news conference bringing together people who claim to have had adverse reactions to the coronavirus vaccine. Johnson, who has no medical training or expertise, has been criticized by doctors and others for spreading misinformation about the coronavirus vaccine. Medical experts say the risk of side effects from COVID-19 vaccines is exceedingly low and that the benefits of getting vaccinated far outweigh the risks. Johnson said Friday that the Monday news conference in Milwaukee will allow people from around the country to tell their stories and express concerns he says have been “repeatedly ignored” by the medical community.
