Sen. Paul says that he will not get vaccinated

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has declared that he will not be getting vaccinated for the coronavirus, Breitbart reports

For those unfamiliar with Paul, he is a physician who has been one of the leading voices during the coronavirus pandemic. He has often clashed with Dr. Anthony Fauci during congressional hearings regarding the coronavirus, and he has, in general, offered a viewpoint on the coronavirus that is different from that of what you will hear from the mainstream media.

“Show me evidence”

Paul’s statement that he will not be getting vaccinated came during a recent interview that he did on New York City WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable.”

“Until they show me evidence that people who have already had the infection are dying in large numbers or being hospitalized or getting very sick, I just made my own personal decision that I’m not getting vaccinated because I’ve already had the disease and I have natural immunity now,” Paul said.

Paul argued that in a free society, like that of America, individuals have the ability to assess the risks and make their own medical decisions and that this should remain true with regard to coronavirus vaccinations.

“The thing is, if someone chooses not to be vaccinated and you are vaccinated, they are not a risk to you,” Paul said. “They are taking a risk for themselves.”

“So I think, really, medical decisions should be private,” he added. “In fact, we used to all believe that.”

Background

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released updated coronavirus guidelines that allow vaccinated people to stop social distancing and to stop wearing facemasks. Unvaccinated people, however, are supposed to continue doing these things.

This has led to the question of enforcement, that is, whether the federal government, state government, local government, or some other entity will try to force unvaccinated people to continue wearing masks or to socially distance or even to prevent them from doing certain things.

It does not appear that the federal government is going to take this step. But, there are signs that some local governments and especially private entities are heading in this direction. Dr. Fauci has predicted that some of these entities, including airlines and schools, are likely going to require individuals to demonstrate proof of vaccination before being allowed to participate.

As Paul pointed out, this raises all kinds of concerns, including about an individual’s right to choose what medical treatments he or she receives as well as concerns about keeping those medical decisions private.

This is shaping up to be one of the most important issues of our time.
