McCONAUGHEY ON KID VAX MANDATES: Not Alright, Alright, Alright

Actor and potential Texas gubernatorial candidate Matthew McConaughey isn’t announcing a run for office quite yet, but he is weighing in on the debate over COVID vaccines for kids.

”I couldn’t mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids,” McConaughey said, The Hill reported. ”I still want to find out more information.”

”I’m vaccinated, my wife’s vaccinated, I didn’t do it because someone told me I had to: [I] chose to do it,” McConaughey told The New York Times.

”Do I think that there’s any kind of scam or conspiracy theory? Hell no. We all got to get off that narrative: There’s not a conspiracy theory on the vaccines.”

”Right now I’m not vaccinating mine, I’ll tell you that,” he said, noting he has ”quarantined harder” than others, favors wearing masks and relied on a ”heavy amount” of COVID-19 testing, according to the Hill’s report.

”I’m in a position, though, where I can do that, and I understand that not everyone can do that,” he said.
