Gayle King is taking no nonsense

Speaking on her show, CBS This Morning, Gail said that she was becoming tired of explaining how the vaccine was developed to save lives.

“I don’t know how many more times you can say to people, ‘Listen, it will save your life’,” she said while speaking to President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor, Dr Anthony Fauci.

She then went on to express how she had made the decision to tell her family members who are still refusing to take the vaccination, that they are not welcome at her annual Thanksgiving vacation.

‘Tired of fearing for my life,’ says King

According to Gayle, she spent a long time fearing for her life while the coronavirus wreaked havoc and ripped apart many families. When the vaccine was finally made available, she wasted no time standing in line for her prick.

“I was so afraid to leave the house.”

“We were broadcasting from here, so I’d literally go from my bedroom to the TV room to the kitchen to the bedroom to the TV room. For excitement, I’d go stand in the living room and wave at the birds! ‘Hi, birds! Hi!’ I was so afraid.”

A sigh of relief

As reported in an IOL article, King expresses how after getting the vaccination, she was ready for the world again. She also added even though she was only taking baby steps towards a normal life, she had grown tired of her constant fear of catching the scary virus.

“But now I am vaccinated. It is my superpower. I am vaccinated. … I’m taking little baby steps [back into the world].”

She also said: “I’ve been so afraid, hunkered down here at home. I’m tired of being scared.”
