Mike Pence Plays To Anti-Vaxxers In New Column

Mike Pence writes in his syndicated column:

People who are obese or overweight face a much higher risk of severe symptoms and hospitalization. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 80% of patients hospitalized for COVID-19 were overweight or obese. Yet, in his sweeping vaccine mandate on 80 million Americans, Biden and his public health bureaucrats make no distinction between groups based on age, overall health, or any other known risk factors.

Nor do they consider the 1 in 3 Americans who already have contracted and recovered from the virus, and thus have developed natural immunity — which multiple studies have shown is far more effective and longer-lasting than the immunity achieved by vaccination. Why should those who are naturally immune be penalized for refusing a vaccine that, for them, is probably medically unnecessary? If Biden and Democrats have their way, the pandemic-induced panic will never end.
