Fox Host Refuses Vaccination As “Giant Middle Finger To Joe Biden’s Tyranny”

During an appearance on far-right pundit Dan Bongino, Fox News host Lisa Boothe said she’s not vaccinated against the coronavirus because she has a “97.99 chance of survival.” She called her refusal to help protect those around her a “giant middle finger to Joe Biden’s tyranny.”

“I, as a 36-year-old woman with no underlying conditions, have a 99.97 percent chance of survival against COVID,” said Boothe. “So I was on the fence because it didn’t make sense to get vaccinated for a virus that is not a threat to my life, nor one that I fear.

“But now, I’m doubling down as a giant middle finger to Joe Biden’s tyranny, because now it’s a fight for freedom,” she added. “Now it’s a fight against tyranny in America and that’s what this is all about.”

What Boothe failed to note is that while she might very well survive a bout of COVID-19, there was no mention of long term effects from having had the virus.

In April, Science Daily reported on a study which showed, “eight months after mild COVID-19, one in ten people still has at least one moderate to severe symptom that is perceived as having a negative impact on their work, social or home life.”

And Fox29Philly recently reported on a study published in the journal “Nature” found that 80% of people who were infected with COVID-19 will experience at least one or more of the long-term effects associated with the virus.

And what about the financial hit patients could face after “surviving?”

FAIR Health analyzed data from over 30 billion healthcare claim records and found the average charge per COVID-19 patient requiring hospitalization averaged out to between $17,064 for a patient over 70 to $24,012 for people in their 50’s.

In August, the Kaiser Family Foundation issued a report showing the estimated the cost of COVID-19 hospitalizations at approximately $20,922.

No mention of any of that from Boothe. Huh…

It’s worth nothing that Fox News requires all employees to be either vaccinated or submit to a daily on-site COVID test. Additionally, face masks are required in all areas regardless of vaccination status.

Earlier this month, Boothe called the development of an oral treatment for COVID-19 developed by Merck a “scam” saying its approval was just a favor to “Big Pharma.” She argued that ivermectin (which has not been proven to be effective against COVID-19) could be repurposed for “so cheap.”

Ahem….Ivermectin is manufactured by that very same “Big Pharma” company, Merck.
