Malliotakis: Government Should Encourage Vaccination, Not Mandate It

December 20, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis appeared on Fox News to condemn vaccination mandates, but did say vaccination should be encouraged by the government.

“Look, they’ve tried everything from restrictions to mandates, and they continue to push more vaccine mandates and mask mandates,” Malliotakis told Fox News. “I think it’s time for the administration to now turn to therapeutics and treatment.”

“I think it’s clear that COVID is here to stay,” Malliotakis continued. “And vaccination — which I am vaccinated and certainly reduces the level of the severity of the symptoms — I think that we need to now put that same focus and attention on therapeutics like the monoclonal antibodies, like ensuring that the FDA rapidly approves the treatments that are pending.”

Of the Biden administration’s handling of the situation, Malliotakis told Fox News, “I believe that government should be encouraging the vaccination, but not mandating it and threatening to take away people’s livelihoods. Think about how extreme that is, to fire someone, take away their job. And particularly at a time right now where businesses all across the country are finding it difficult to find employees and retain them.”
