WHILE speaking at an event organized by Turning Point USA, Sarah Palin said it would be “over my dead body” before she gets a COVID-19 vaccine, despite testing positive for the virus earlier this year.
The former Governor of Alaska made an appearance at Americafest Sunday, encouraging others to “stiffen their spines” and fight back against vaccine mandates.
“There is an empowerment in a group like this where we can kind of feed off each other,” she said.
Palin also took the stage to throw criticism at Dr Anthony Fauci who has urged Americans to get vaccinated.
Palin called Fauci “inconsistent”, commenting on the infectious disease expert’s previous statements about natural immunity to those who’ve had COVID.
“Those of us who have had COVID, they’re telling us that even though we’ve had it—we have natural immunity—now that we still have to get a shot.”
Dr Fauci and other experts have talked previously about natural immunity, however, the Centers for Disease Control still recommends that people get vaccinated to better protect themselves.
A figure by Johns Hopkins University has suggested that at least 806,000 people have died due to complications from the virus.

“It’ll be over my dead body that I get a shot. I will not. I won’t do it and they better not touch my kids either.” said Palin.
Back in March of this year, Palin revealed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 and urged people to wear masks in public.
“Through it all, I view wearing that cumbersome mask indoors in a crowd as not only allowing the newfound luxury of being incognito but trust it’s better than doing nothing to slow the spread,” she told People magazine.
“I strongly encourage everyone to use common sense to avoid spreading this and every other virus out there.”
