C-Span host Greta Brawner appeared gobsmacked as she received a bizarre phone call on live television.
A Tennessee caller told Brawner she was refusing the freely available COVID-19 vaccine because she was "vaccinated by the blood of Jesus Christ."
You can see the moment here:
The woman, who identified herself as "Joanne," said she was 84-years-old, a survivor of lung cancer and she didn't care that these things made her more susceptible to SARS-CoV-2.
"I don't trust CDC, I don't trust [Dr. Anthony Fauci] they all have flipped back and forth too many times."
"They've got the people so confused here in the United States."
Joanne seemed ignorant of the fact Fauci answered individual citizens' emails himself with clear and consistent instructions on what to do.
But Joanne said:
"They don't know what to do. And I'm not a sheep. I'm not going to follow everybody else."
Others were not as certain of Joanne's immunity.
"And ma'am, I don't know how you feel but I trust my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. And I am vaccinated by the blood of Jesus Christ."
"And that's the main thing that we need to do is to get our country back to trusting in God and he will take care of all this Covid."
The current strain of the virus is responsible for the majority of both infections and deaths in the unvaccinated population in the United States at the present moment, which is proof the vaccine is working.
Joanne, being a survivor of lung cancer, is at particular risk of developing a severe illness if she catches SARS-Cov-2, and her refusal to get vaccinated may be the literal nail in her coffin.
We sincerely hope Joanne sees reason.
