Candace Owens is among millions of Americans who don't trust Dr. Anthony Fauci after he admitted funding coronavirus research in Wuhan, China.
The conservative author says she "trusts her gut" more than she does the White House's infectious disease expert, Eurweb.com reports.
"I still have not received the COVID-19 vaccine and have not demanded that any of my employees get it either," Owens wrote in a Facebook post Sunday.
"I am proud that I committed myself to standing firm against the bribery, media propaganda, coercion, celebrity-peer pressure campaign, plus censorship. I made a personal decision for me and my family.
"It is isn't easy to swim against such a polluted current but here I am. I trust my gut much more than trust Dr. Fauci. May we all do what we feel in our hearts is right, unabashedly."
Meanwhile, Fauci said "everyone" will eventually need a third mRNA vaccine "booster" shot because the first two shots will decrease in efficacy.
"Things are going to get worse," Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told ABC co-anchor Jonathan Karl on "This Week."
Fauci reluctantly admitted the country is close to herd immunity and there won't be any more lockdowns.
"I don't think we're gonna see lockdowns. I think we have enough of the percentage of people in the country — not enough to crush the outbreak — but I believe enough to not allow us to get into the situation we were in last winter."
