Colorado congressman more worried about vaccine than COVID-19
President Donald Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” vaccines for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) have arrived, but not all politicians, including some Republicans, are interested in getting one due to the risks involved.
Rep. Ken Buck, a Republican congressman from Colorado, told Fox Business host Neil Cavuto the other day that he is “more concerned about the safety of the vaccine” than he is about experiencing the “side effects of the disease.”
Since most people who test positive for COVID-19 experience minimal or no symptoms, there is no point in getting vaccinated, is the gist of Buck’s argument against getting jabbed.
“It is my choice,” the 61-year-old told Cavuto. “I’m an American and I have the freedom to decide if I’m going to take a vaccine or not and, in this case, I’m not going to take the vaccine.”
The mainstream media considers this type of rhetoric “dangerous,” and Big Tech would censor it in an instant were it to be presented without criticism. Buck even added his own caveat that the warp-speed development of the vaccine is “an incredible feat that should be applauded.”
At the same time, Buck says he is “a healthy person” who does not need the vaccine, adding that “most Americans are healthy.”
“I think what we should do is we should focus on the at-risk populations in America, make sure those are the people that get this vaccine first,” he added, offering praise to the “frontline workers” and “healthcare professionals.”
“Make sure that the health care workers who want the vaccine get the vaccine as soon as possible,” he added.
