PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — R.I. House Minority Leader Representative Blake Filippi joined 12 News at 4 on Wednesday to discuss privacy around vaccinations, the Act on Climate Bill and more.

Filippi said he does not want to make public whether he plans to get vaccinated, calling it a private medical decision.

“My opinion is that if you feel comfortable and want to get vaccinated, you should,” he said. “But it’s not anyone else’s business.”
