SARAH Palin has brazenly refused to get vaccinated against Covid, saying she'll get the shot "over my dead body."
The former Alaska governor spoke out against the lifesaving Covid jab despite being diagnosed with the virus earlier this year.

Appearing at Americafest, an event organized by Turning Point USA, Palin called on others to “stiffen their spines” and fight back against vaccine mandates.
“There is an empowerment in a group like this where we can kind of feed off each other,” she said.
Research by the CDC shows all Covid-19 vaccinations authorized for use in the United States protect against the virus.
Studies provide a growing body of evidence that vaccines offer similar protection in real-world conditions as they have in clinical trial settings, reducing the risk of COVID-19, including severe illness by 90 percent or more among people who are fully vaccinated.
In addition to providing protection against Covid-19, the CDC says there is increasing evidence that getting the jab also provides protection against infections without symptoms and can reduce the spread of disease overall, helping protect people around you.
Despite this Palin branded Fauci “inconsistent”, commenting on the infectious disease expert’s previous statements about natural immunity to those who’ve had Covid.
“Those of us who have had Covid, they’re telling us that even though we’ve had it—we have natural immunity—now that we still have to get a shot.”
A figure by Johns Hopkins University has suggested that at least 806,000 people have died due to complications from the virus.
“It’ll be over my dead body that I get a shot. I will not. I won’t do it and they better not touch my kids either.” said Palin.
Back in March of this year, Palin revealed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 and urged people to wear masks in public.
“Through it all, I view wearing that cumbersome mask indoors in a crowd as not only allowing the newfound luxury of being incognito but trust it’s better than doing nothing to slow the spread,” she told People magazine.
“I strongly encourage everyone to use common sense to avoid spreading this and every other virus out there.”
