Crowd cheers Republican conspiracist over low vaccination rates as state dumps 65,000 doses

COVID conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene speaks at a Republican rally in Georgia.

“This is the hardest one for me, that it does appear there’s a partisan connection,” Lee told WAMU. Nearly 60 per cent of Republicans say they are unwilling to get vaccinated, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll of 1517 US adults released last month. Meanwhile, Republican leaders, including Greene, have opposed vaccine requirements, arguing in favour of individual choices. “The messaging here in the United States has been consistently around how it’s a personal decision to get vaccinated, but pandemics by their definition are collective problems,” Lee said. “We have to think more about our actions protecting our loved ones and our communities.”
