Ala.’s GOP Governor: Blame ‘the Unvaccinated Folks’ for Virus Spike

'It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down....'

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, a Republican, blamed “unvaccinated folks” for allowing COVID-19 to keep spreading, and calling the vaccines a “cure.”

Alabama has the lowest vaccination rate in the country, with 39.6 percent of the state’s residents 12 years and older having received a full vaccination, Politico reported.

America as a whole has a 48.8 percent vaccination rate.

A local reporter asked Ivey how she planned to increase the state’s vaccination rate.

“I don’t know. You tell me,” she responded. “Folks supposed to have common sense. But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down.”

Ivey said that the coronavirus vaccines offer complete protection from COVID-19, including the media-hyped Delta variant, without any threat to recipients.

“I want folks to get vaccinated. That’s the cure. That prevents everything,” she said, adding that the shots are “safe” and “effective.”

She ignored the fact that COVID-19 vaccines have caused thousands of severe adverse reactions, including heart inflammation in young, otherwise healthy people.

Receiving the vaccine frequently causes the same symptoms as naturally contracting the disease.

The CDC lists “tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea” as “common side effects.”

Vaccination does not guarantee protection against the coronavirus, despite Ivey’s assurances.

The CDC reports that about 5,500 fully vaccinated people have tested positive for the coronavirus and then were hospitalized or pronounced dead.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky maintains that 99.5 percent of all COVID cases occur in unvaccinated people.

“The data proves that it works,” Ivey said. “Doesn’t cost you anything. It saves lives.”

The governor did not, like President Joe Biden, suggest door-to-door vaccination squads or other forceful means to jab the state’s skeptical citizens.

She said she has “done all I know how to do.”

“I can encourage you to do something,” she said, “but I can’t make you take care of yourself.”

Ivey’s comments come as the corporate media and Democratic Party spread fear about the Delta variant—which reportedly comprises 83 percent of COVID-19 infections—and issue existential warnings about a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

Unvaccinated Americans do not fear a new variant and most still have no intentions to get the shot.

An AP-NORC poll found that 80 percent of unvaccinated people do not plan to get the shot, though 16 percent “probably will” and 3 percent “definitely will.”

Of the people who have avoided the shot, 64 percent do not believe it would protect them against the Delta variant or other COVID mutations. Of vaccinated Americans, however, 86 percent believe they will be protected against new variants.

These suspicions have gained additional weight as Pfizer negotiates with the Food and Drug Administration to begin the authorization process for a third-dose booster shot.

Effective vaccines for adults rarely require boosters.

Other unvaccinated Americans do not want the vaccine because the White House, corporate media, and social media have taken coordinated steps to censor open conversation about its efficacy and safety.

“We always knew some proportion of the population would be difficult to persuade no matter what the data showed…a lot of people are beyond persuasion,” said Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease specialist at Johns Hopkins University.
