Former Alaska governor and GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin has said that she has chosen not to get the coronavirus vaccine, having already been positive and recovered from the virus this year.
Palin was on Fox News’ late-night show “Gutfeld!” this Thursday where she revealed why she has not yet gotten the vaccine. It’s because of the science.
“I believe in science and I have not gotten the shot,” Palin said, as the program’s guests spoke about recent comments from the anti-White Don Lemon of CNN, who recently stated it is time to “shun” the “stupid” people who have not gotten the vaccine yet.
“One, because the waitress never got back to ask me if I was ready for the shot,” Palin said. “But two, because I believe in science and even Dr. Fauci has admitted if you have had COVID—you have had COVID—and well, Mother Nature created immunity.”
While Newsweek reported that it “was not clear which comments” Palin was speaking about, Dr. Fauci — who is the director of the NIAID and the country’s de facto covid czar — did state that in spring of 2020, long before a vaccine was created, that he would be “willing to bet anything that people who recover are protected against getting re-infected,” as Business Insider said at the time.
Palin went on, “And even today, they say you are 27 percent more immune —”
At this point, Dr. Drew Pinsky, jumped in to correct Palin, saying, “Twenty-seven times.”
“Yeah 27 times,” she said. “So I want to ask the questions.”

The research Palin and Pinksy were mentioning, which The Hill said was yet to get peer-reviewed, is an Israeli study done on 700,000 people which revealed those who had recovered from coronavirus were 27 times less likely to get re-infected.
On September 10, Dr. Fauci was asked about this study and responded that, “I don’t have a good answer for that.”
“That is something that we are going to have to discuss about the response,” he said, according to Reuters. “The one thing the Israeli paper did not tell you is whether or not the protection is as high with natural infection, what is the durability compared to that of the vaccine.”
