Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin drove a crowd into a frenzy when she told them she would never get a vaccine.
"It'll be over my dead body that I'll have to get a shot," Palin told attendees of Turning Point USA's AmericaFest 2021 in Phoenix, AZ. "I will not do that. I won't do it, and they better not touch my kids either."

Sarah Palin showed up in Phoenix this morning to tell that crowd “it will be over my dead body” that she gets vaccinated. Then she encourages others to “stiffen their spines” and fight back. “There is an empowerment in a group like this where we can kind of feed off each other.” pic.twitter.com/t47oxxrGtB— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) December 19, 2021
When asked by TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk what she would say to people who might be fired from a job or kicked out of school over an unwillingness to comply with a vaccine mandate, Palin answered, "I think if enough of us ... rise up and say, 'No, enough is enough,' there are more of us than there are of them."
Palin encouraged attendees to "stiffen their spines," arguing that "there is an empowerment in a group like this where we can kind of feed off each other and really be strong."
Palin's remarks reflected similar comments made by Kirk and Fox host Tucker Carlson on the first day of the four-day event. "No one should be forced to get the vaccine against their will under any circumstances whatsoever," Kirk told the audience. "Period. End of story."
