” The people of my district are more than smart adequate to make their own decisions about the speculative vaccine and dont need coercion by federal representatives,” Boebert tweeted today. “Did I get up in Communist China?”
The Biden Administration is releasing a program targeting areas, like Mesa County, where the virus is spiking and vaccine hesitancy is high. The vaccination rate in Mesa County has actually stalled at about 45%.
The rise is due, in part, to the increase of the Delta variant, which is considered to be a 50% more contagious range of COVID-19 than the strain of the infection that formerly controlled Colorado.
Today, as initially reported by Westword, Colorado public health authorities are calling Country Jam a COVID-19 outbreak website, with four team member and 13 attendees contracting the virus there so far.
Boebert has been mostly unconcerned about the pandemic in her district, essentially marketing on a platform of downplaying the danger of the virus.
Her behavior throughout the campaign was criticized by public health officials.

Both prior to and after this years music celebration, health officials were concerned about the spread of the COVID-19 in Mesa County, where the celebration took location, as hospital emergency situation rooms were filling up and regional citizens were lagging getting immunized in comparison to other parts of Colorado.
Regardless of participating in the concert and the alarming news reports about Covid in Mesa County, Boebert hasnt acknowledged the severity of the scenario in her district.
The Congresswomans most recent tweets on COVID took a shot at President Joe Biden for releasing his “Needle Nazis to Mesa County” and accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of “bullying” individuals into getting vaccinated versus COVID.
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) isnt revealing any signs of concern about increasing COVID cases in her district– or about a COVID outbreak that happened at a music celebration she participated in throughout the last week of June.
” Great night at the Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colorado!” tweeted Boebert June 26, together with images of herself and the crowd at the performance.
Nation Jam, an annual event, is where Boebert was detained in 2015 after informing detaining officers that they would be speaking with her “pals” at Fox News and after she encouraged juveniles to get away cops custody at the scene.
