Today, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution released new audio of U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker bragging about being unvaccinated. This comes after Walker pushed a bogus “snake oil body spray for COVID” to his followers, swearing by this “EPA-, FDA-approved,” “dry mist” product that — “as you walk through the door” — [would] “kill any COVID on your body.”
Walker has refused for months to disclose whether or not he’s received the COVID-19 vaccine, and previously received scrutiny for hawking snake oil solutions to COVID-19 during the height of the pre-vaccine pandemic, spreading anti-vaccine propaganda, and defending a donor’s use of the swastika as “an anti-mandatory vaccination graphic.”
As the AJC notes:
[Herschel Walker] answered a longstanding question at a grassroots meet-and-greet event over the weekend, telling the audience he wouldn’t get the coronavirus vaccine.
“I don’t get one because I don’t think the government should be telling you to get one,” he said. “That’s the way I feel.”
Walker had previously refused to disclose his vaccine status and spread misinformation about the virus. He’s also touted what the Daily Beast described as “unproven mystery treatments” to combat the spread of the disease.
