I was always taught that if you can count your blessings, you can share your blessings. I’ve been seeing so many great WV Strong and Better Angels stories. During these unprecedented times, it’s important to focus on all the wonderful things that are still happening every day in our beautiful state.

Nominated as today’s Better Angels are two Appalachian Power employees who rescued a man from a burning car in Clendenin. Brandon Johnson, a line mechanic and volunteer firefighter, and his colleague John Hughes were on the job when they saw a vehicle on fire with the passenger unable to escape, and they sprang into action. All were unharmed. I am proud to join a grateful Mountain State in saying ‘thank you’ to Brandon and John for their heroic actions that saved a fellow West Virginian.

Please continue sharing your stories of hope, joy, and volunteerism by emailing your nomination and a photo to .

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) received notification that West Virginia will be receiving another increase in the weekly vaccine allocation.

"Today I was notified that West Virginia will receive another weekly increase of 1,400 vaccine doses in addition to the 7,300 doses we will receive through the Federal Pharmacy Program. This is the third consecutive dosage increase for West Virginia and I am very pleased that the Biden Administration is following through on the promise to quickly increase vaccine production. As West Virginia continues to lead the nation in effective and safe COVID-19 vaccination distribution, it is vital that we continue to receive additional doses so every West Virginian who wants to be vaccinated can be. This is great news for the Mountain State and I will continue to work with the Biden Administration to quickly procure more doses as production increases," said Senator Manchin.
