In an interview with Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld on Thursday, the former Governor of Alaska said he had innate immunity from getting sick in March.
“I’m one of those white common-sense conservatives,” Palin said. “I believe in science, and I haven’t been shot.”
“One is because the waitress didn’t come back to ask if the shot was ready,” she continued. “But second, I believe in science and Fauciism at the time, so if you had a COVID, I would have a COVID, so Mother Nature creates immunity. Was. “
“So I want to ask a question,” Palin added.
However, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends receiving shots “regardless” of previous infections.

“There is evidence that complete vaccination gives people better protection than if they were infected with COVID-19,” the CDC adds. Research “Unvaccinated people who are already infected with COVID-19 are more than twice as likely to be infected with COVID-19 as those who are fully vaccinated.”
Under certain circumstances, according to the CDC, people infected with COVID-19 should not receive shots for a period of time, such as if they remain infectious or are treated with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma. .. See the complete guidelines on the CDC website.
Palin frowned on social media with her comments on shots that were safely administered to billions of people around the world, following her. Diagnosis earlier this yearShe urged people to “use common sense” and wear masks in public — even if prominent Republicans and most prominent former president Donald Trump opposed them.
“There are more viruses than the stars in the sky, so we can’t avoid all the causes of illness and danger,” she said at the time. “Overall, I wear that nasty mask indoors in the crowd, not only allowing the newly discovered luxury of being in secret mode, but rather than doing nothing to slow the spread. I also believe it is good. “
