Johnson has been lying about COVID-19 vaccine:
- Johnson pushed fringe and unscientific COVID-19 treatments, spread anti-vaccine misinformation, including questioning why the general public should be vaccinated, and boasts about not getting the vaccine, all of which goes directly against the medical community’s guidance.
- Johnson has used unscientific and unsubstantiated reports to lie about side effects and deaths related to COVID-19 vaccines.
But here’s the truth:
Fact: “Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated.”
CDC: “Get vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. Studies have shown that vaccination provides a strong boost in protection in people who have recovered from COVID-19.”
Fact: Since the vaccine was introduced, the number of COVID-19 deaths in Wisconsin has drastically decreased.
Fact: Since the vaccine was introduced, the number of COVID-19 infections in Wisconsin has drastically decreased.
