Sarah Palin Reveals She’s Counting on Natural Immunity


Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has revealed that she has opted not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, having already tested positive for and recovered from the virus earlier this year.

Palin was a guest on Fox News’ late-night show “Gutfeld!” on Thursday where she explained to host Greg Gutfeld and his other guests why she has not gotten yet gotten the vaccine. It’s because of — and not in spite of — the science.

“I believe in the science and I have not taken the shot,” Palin explained, as the program’s guests discussed recent comments from the ever-unifying Don Lemon of CNN, who recently said it’s time to “shun” and “start shaming” the “stupid” people who have yet to get vaccinated.

“One, because the waitress never came back to ask me if I’m ready for that shot,” Palin joked. “But two, because I do believe in science and the Fauci-ism of the day back then was, if you’ve had COVID—I’ve had COVID—well then, Mother Nature was creating an immunity.”

While Newsweek reported that it “wasn’t clear exactly which comments” Palin was referring to, Dr. Anthony Fauci — director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as well as the nation’s de facto coronavirus czar — did say in spring of 2020, long before a vaccine was even developed, much less available, that he’d be “willing to bet anything that people who recover are really protected against re-infection,” as Business Insider reported at the time.
