Ex-Vice President of the Republican Party Sarah Palin has said “over my dead body” would she bow to pressure to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

A visit to the right-wing student organization Turning Point USA’s “AmericaFest,” host Charlie Kirk asked Palin for her view on vaccine mandates.

Palin is who tested positive for COVID-19 in March, argued that she does not need to be vaccinated against the virus because she’s already had it.

“We were led to believe that we wouldn’t have to have the shot,” she said. “Well, then they changed their tune and now those of us who have had COVID ― they’re telling us that even though we’ve had it and we have natural immunity, now that we still have to get a shot.”

“It will be over my dead body that I’ll have to get a shot,” she added, just days after the U.S. passed the tragic milestone of 800,000 COVID-19 deaths. “I will not do it. And they better not touch my kids either.”

She then said “there are more of us than there are of them” and encouraged attendees to “stiffen your spine” to push back against things like the “government telling us what we have to inject in our own bodies.”

It’s unclear who she was referring to with the us and them comment. A little over 73% of Americans have had at least one COVID-19-related vaccine.

“And there is an empowerment in a group like this where you all can feed off each other, and really be strong,” Palin continued.

Being infected with COVID-19 offers some protection from future illness from the virus, sometimes called “natural immunity.” This is not as reliable and effective as vaccines, which provide a high level of protection against coronavirus.

“The level of protection people get from having COVID-19 may vary depending on how mild or severe their illness was, the time since their infection, and their age; and no currently available test can reliably determine if you are protected after a COVID-19 infection,” the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionIts website lists all the states.

Palin, who revealed that she was positive for COVID-19 in March, urged the public to wear masks when they went out in public to help protect themselves from this virus. In September, she insisted that she was not getting vaccinated because “I believe in science.”

According to science, the CDC saysEven if you have received COVID-19, it is important that everyone get the coronavirus vaccination.

“AmericaFest” will see appearances from other conservative personalities, including Donald Trump Jr., Fox News’s Tucker Carlson and Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen who was acquitted after killing two people at a Black Lives Matter protest.
