Bolsonaro Says Will Refuse Vaccination Against Disease That Is 99.8% Survivable and He Already Had
Scandalous blasphemy against the germ cult
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday evening that he would not take a coronavirus vaccine, the latest in a series of statements he has made expressing scepticism towards vaccination programmes that many hope will bring an end to the pandemic.
In statements broadcast live over multiple social media platforms, the right-wing leader added that Congress was unlikely to require Brazilians to take a vaccine.
“I’m telling you, I’m not going to take it. It’s my right,” he said.
In his latest comments, Bolsonaro expressed scepticism about the effectiveness of mask-wearing, implying there was little conclusive evidence that masks stem the transmission of the virus.
The president has repeatedly said that Brazilians will not be required to be vaccinated when a coronavirus vaccine becomes widely available.
In October, he joked on Twitter that vaccination would be required only for his dog.
