Sarah Palin, 57, revealed that she has not received the COVID vaccine claiming it is because she believes in science that she has forgone the shot.
The former governor of Alaska and vice presidential candidate explained her reasoning for not getting vaccinated during her Thursday night appearance on Fox New's talk show, Gutfeld!
'I am one of those white common sense conservatives,' she began, 'I believe in the science and I have not taken the shot.'
She made a joke about shots before continuing on in her explanation invoking Fauci in her defense against receiving the vaccine claiming she has natural immunity.
'One, because the waitress never came back to ask me if I was ready for that shot.'
'Two because I do believe in science and the Faucism of the day back then was if you've had COVID, I've had COVID, well then mother nature was creating an immunity into me.'

Pinsky was referring to a study conducted in Israel which showed that people who were previously diagnosed with COVID were much less likely to contract Delta, develop symptoms, or be hospitalized than vaccinated people who've never had COVID.
An article published by Science.org titled 'Having SARS-CoV-2 once confers much greater immunity than a vaccine—but vaccination remains vital' discusses the Israeli study.
While the study does prove the power of the human immune system, it goes on to show that people who previously had COVID and received one dose of the vaccine 'were more highly protected against reinfection' than people who had COVID and did not receive the shot.
The conclusion of the study did not question or dismiss the need for previously infected people to receive the vaccine entirely but suggested that those people may only be in need of one dose instead of two.
However, the CDC cited a
