With vaccines now being produced, many across the country have debated the right steps to distribute them. While some believe the elderly should be prioritized, some believe that frontline workers should get the first crack.
It is safe to say that McCain is pitching her tent with the frontline workers. The TV show host said on Christmas eve: "Merry Christmas to everyone except healthy people under 65 getting the vaccine before our frontline workers[...]"
It is public knowledge that people over 65 are most vulnerable to the novel coronavirus. So, it is understandable that these people should get priority in vaccine distribution.
However, as McCain's tweet shows, the frontline health workers and the elderly should also be prioritized for all they have done for the country this year.

McCain has often credited her "no-nonsense" approach to politics to her father, the late Senator John McCain. Known as a maverick, the late Senator never feared breaking ranks and standing for what he thought was right.
Senator John McCain had several infamous squabbles with several notable figures, including those in his party. His daughter is simply a chip off the old block.
