Who has been mentioned as a possible Texas Governor candidate IS vaccinated ….
Matthew McConaughey says that while he’s received his COVID-19 shot, he’s against mandating that his children get vaccinated.
“I couldn’t mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids. I still want to find out more information,” the “Interstellar” actor said Tuesday, when asked at The New York Times’s DealBook summit about his stance on childhood vaccinations and whether to mandate them.
The Food and Drug Administration authorized Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine for emergency use in children ages 5 to 11 last week.
McConaughey, who’s repeatedly floated a possible campaign against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), indicated that he’s not opposed to vaccinations, but would be against requiring them.
“I’m vaccinated. My wife’s vaccinated. I didn’t do it because someone told me I had to — [I] chose to do it,” he told the Times’s Andrew Ross Sorkin.
“Do I think that there’s any kind of scam or conspiracy theory?” the Academy Award-winner asked. “Hell no.”
“We all got to get off that narrative. There’s not a conspiracy theory on the vaccines,” he said.
But McConaughey, 52, added of his children: “Right now I’m not vaccinating mine, I’ll tell you that.”…..
