WATCH: Republican Governor Is Really Getting Sick Of Anti-Vax Conspiracy Theories
West Virginia’s Republican Governor, Jim Justice, appears to be completely exasperated with anti-vaxxers who believe and spread outrageous conspiracy theories about the shot.
Those who have concerns about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines should absolutely consult a trusted health professional, and there will be individuals advised to delay or skip the vaccine because of their own medical situation — just like with any medication or vaccine. However, a lot of the people refusing to be vaccinated are doing so for reasons not related to medicine, science, or reality.
“For God’s sakes a livin’, how difficult is this to understand?"

As seen in the clip above, Governor Justice is really frustrated with those anti-vaxxers who won’t take the simple step of a free, potentially life-saving, vaccine because they’ve bought into propaganda that suggests there are microchips hidden in the shot that will somehow be used to track people who receive it.
Why in the world do we have to come up with these crazy ideas, and they’re crazy ideas! That the vaccine’s got something in it that is tracing people wherever they go, and the same very people that are saying that are carrying their cell phones around!
It’s not the first time Justice has spoken out and tried to encourage vaccination. He has begged his constituents to take the vaccine, and even gone so far as to decry anti-vaxxers as playing in a “death lottery.”
According to US Facts, just over half the country is fully vaccinated, and 63% of the U.S. population has received at least one dose.
