Sarah Palin Says She’s Not Vaccinated Because She Believes ‘In Science’
Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, said this week that she did not receive the COVID-19 vaccine because she "believed in science".
During an interview with Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld on Thursday, the former Alaska governor cited natural immunity to contracting the disease in March.

"I'm one of those white conservatives with common sense," said Palin. "I believe in science and I didn't shoot."
"First, because the waitress never came back to ask me if I was ready for that shot," she continued. "But second, because I believe in science and it was the fauziism of the time, if you had COVID - I had COVID - then Mother Nature created immunity."
"So I want to ask the questions," added Palin.
However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that people receive the vaccination "regardless" of any previous infection.
"Research has not yet shown how long you are protected from re-infection with COVID-19 after recovering from COVID-19," notes the CDC on its website, noting that "Vaccination protects you, even if you have already had COVID-19 ”. . "
"There is evidence that people who are fully vaccinated get better protection than if they had COVID-19," adds the CDC, citing a study that shows that "unvaccinated people who have already had COVID-19 are more than twice as likely as people who are fully vaccinated ”. to get Covid-19 back. "
Under certain circumstances, according to the CDC, people who have contracted COVID-19 should not receive the vaccination for a period of time, e.g. B. if they are still infectious or have been treated with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma. The full guidelines can be found on the CDC website.
While Palin raised her eyebrows on social media with her comments on the shots that were safely administered to billions of people around the world, following her diagnosis earlier this year, she urged people to "use common sense" and wear masks in public - including when they are high ranking. Profile Republicans, especially former President Donald Trump, railed against them.
"There are more viruses than stars in the sky, which means that we will never avoid any source of disease or danger," she said at the time. "However, I see wearing this awkward mask indoors in a crowd not only as enabling the newfound luxury of being incognito, but trusting that it is better than doing nothing to slow the spread."
