Kamala Harris had a medical checkup on July 18, just days after she met with multiple infected Texas Democrats in the nation’s capitol.
The vice president had a “routine doctor’s appointment” at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, about 8 miles northwest of downtown Washington.
Harris’s office previously refused to be tested or quarantine, following a face-to-face meeting with five state lawmakers where nobody wore face masks on July 13. This is because everyone at the meeting was fully vaccinated against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus.
The White House denies the checkup had anything to do with five Texas Democrats who tested positive between July 16 and 18. Harris and her team are not legally required to be tested or quarantined, because they all had the jab.
Texas Democrats had chartered $100,000 in flights from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on July 12. They fled the Lone Star State to prevent state Republicans from passing two voting rights bills in a special session.
Many of them took and shared mask less selfies on the plane. Multiple Republicans later accused them of violating Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
The state House Democratic Caucus confirmed two Texas Democrats, who fled to Washington, tested positive for the deadly disease on July 18. This is in addition to three other delegates who earlier produced positive test results on July 16 and 17, according to the Texas Tribune.
The caucus is now conducting daily CCP Virus testing for the more than 50 state lawmakers in Washington.
“The Delta variant is no joke, get vaccinated,” Harris said on Twitter.

Spokeswoman Symone Sanders previously claimed none of the Texas Democrats came in direct contact with the vice president.
“On Tuesday, July 13th, Vice President Harris met with members of the Texas state Legislature who are temporarily in Washington,” she said on Twitter. “It was brought to our attention that two of the members at that meeting tested positive for COVID-19 (CCP Virus).”
“Based on the timeline of these positive tests, it was determined the vice president and her staff present at the meeting were not at risk of exposure,” she added. “They were not in close contact with those who tested positive and therefore do not need to be tested or quarantined. The vice president and her staff are fully vaccinated.”
