From an op-ed in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:
A few months ago, I decided to take advantage of President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed and get vaccinated. Like many of you, I have had a lot of misinformation thrown at me by politicians and the media during the pandemic. And, like many of you, I spent a lot of time sorting through it all, trying to make the best decision I could for myself and my family.
What I found was simple: Dr. Fauci and the “because science says so” crowd of arrogant, condescending politicians and bureaucrats were wrong about more than their mandates and shutdowns that have inflicted incalculable harm on our people and economy. They also misjudged the Trump vaccine plan, which rolled out just as safely, quickly, and effectively as the Trump administration promised.
I have many friends who have expressed sincere concerns about being vaccinated, and it isn’t my place to tell them what to do. But I also know that, like many others I’ve spoken with on the campaign trail, they are actively seeking information to help them make the decision that is right for them. As the number of covid cases and hospitalizations once again rise exponentially in Arkansas, information is emerging that I hope people will consider.
Read the full op-ed. Sanders goes on to double-down on her vow that if elected, she will never institute any rules meant to mitigate the spread of COVID.
