Could it be Vice President Kamala Harris is a closet anti-vaxxer? She did after all attest mere days before the release of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in November of 2020 that she would not trust a vaccine that Donald Trump had brought to fruition.
That might explain why on Thursday — the day Joe Biden announced his vaccine mandate for federal employees, federal contractors, and health-care workers at facilities that receive federal funding — Harris declared at a meeting with reproductive health providers and patients that she was opposed to “government interference” in “wellbeing” decisions.
In the clip from the meeting that follows, Harris states that “when people are able to design their lives in a way that they can determine their own future, we are a solid democracy. … When people are able to make choices without government interference, for themselves [inaudible] their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their families in consultation with whomever they may choose, we are a strong survive[?].
It’s worth noting in any case that members of Congress and their staffs are exempt from the mandate, as are workers in the federal court system.
