Sens. Wicker, King, Hickenlooper test positive for Covid-19 after vaccination

Sens. Roger Wicker, Angus King and John Hickenlooper all have Covid-19 breakthrough infections, their respective offices announced Thursday.
Wicker, a Republican from Mississippi, and King, an independent from Maine who caucuses with Democrats, both tested positive for the virus following mild symptoms, according to their statements, released earlier in the day. Later on Thursday, Hickenlooper, a Democrat from Colorado, announced that he, too, tested positive following mild symptoms.
The three are not the first senators to test positive for Covid-19 after getting vaccinated: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) reported a breakthrough infection earlier this month.
King noted in his statement that he feels under the weather, but “much better than I would have without the vaccine.” He emphasized his commitment to curbing the spread of the pandemic, and the safety precautions he has taken since the virus began to spread in the U.S.
