Governor Jared Polis: “Misinformation and Targeted Lies” Hinder Vaccinations, Kill Colorado People

Gov. Jared Polis lamented Friday that “misinformation and deliberate lies” are creating resistance to vaccine science and killing Colorado people.

Polis has provided the Legislative Joint Budget Committee with information on government spending for the 2022-23 fiscal year. He preceded his budget proposal with a comment about COVID-19.

“(O) ur hospitals are now filled with mostly unvaccinated Coloradans, many of whom are victims of disinformation campaigns and targeted lies about the life-saving vaccine,” he said.

“Unfortunately, it is because of this misinformation that these unprotected Colorado people fall prey and become severely ill, and in some cases die from the virus, and also turn them into vessels for new mutations such as omicron. This misinformation not only poses a threat to our public health, but every new mutation affects the economy here and around the world. “

According to the state, about 30% of Coloradans remain unvaccinated against COVID-19. Now in the fifth wave of the virus, Colorado is reporting several thousand new infections every day. As of Thursday, the state said there were only 67 ICU hospital beds and 399 general hospital beds statewide. Polis and other officials have warned for weeks that hospital capacity here could be exceeded this month.
