Newsom Blames ‘Right-Wing Shows’ for California’s Lagging Vaccination Rate

While praising California for one of the best COVID- 19 vaccination rates in the country, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday the rate remains too low, and he blamed “right-wing” pundits for spreading misinformation and contributing to vaccine hesitancy.

He also insisted the state has no plans to institute a “vaccine passport” system, again calling such a program unnecessary if more people get the shots. But he left the door open for possible new statewide health restrictions if cases continue spiking and hospital space becomes threatened.

“We are not ideological,” he said during an appearance in Long Beach. “I’ll maintain that today as it relates to any subsequent decisions on the basis of epidemiology, on the basis of science, on the basis of the status of our health-care delivery system.”
