During the recent days, right-wing leaders in the United States gathered at the Conservative Political Action Conference held in Texas, an annual event where conservatives solidify their current positions on the challenges confronting the nation. Naturally, one of the prime concerns in the country is the COVID-19 outbreak and the continuous drive to leverage the country’s abundant vaccine supply to combat it. Yet, the prevailing inclination at the conference appeared to be not about promoting higher vaccination rates, but rather steering Americans clear from vaccination.

Alex Berenson, a notorious conservative commentator who The Atlantic once labeled as “the pandemic’s most mistaken individual” due to his habit of spreading false information, took the platform at CPAC to commend the fact that the nation had fallen short of the targeted vaccination goal. “The authorities were expecting that they could somehow deceive 90 percent of the populace into receiving the vaccine, but that didn’t pan out,” he conveyed to the audience, who responded with cheers and applause.

In the aftermath of this incident, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser to the President and head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, voiced apprehension over this troubling outlook. On CNN’s State of the Union, Fauci remarked, “We need to set aside these ideological conflicts or disagreements in the belief that someone is compelling you to take a particular action. Health experts, including myself and my peers, are urging you to undertake an action that will ultimately safeguard your life, as well as that of your loved ones and the wider community.”

“It’s almost terrifying to witness individuals cheering and clapping at the suggestion, ‘Hey, why don’t we reject the opportunity to safeguard our lives? Bravo!’ It baffles me. I don’t comprehend it, and I doubt anyone thinking rationally can. What’s the rationale behind that?”

As of now, vaccination remains voluntary in all 50 states. Nevertheless, Fauci emphasized that in the event of a deteriorating pandemic situation, vaccine mandates might become necessary.
