WASHINGTON – Thousands gathered in the nation’s capital to protest against vaccine mandates nationwide, with attendees saying they were standing up for “freedom.”
“I’m here to be a part of this movement, to fight for freedom and for the right to decide what’s right for your body,” one “Defeat the Mandates” rallygoer told Fox News.
Numerous cities, including Washington, D.C., as well as private entities, have enacted COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Vaccines offer superior protection against the virus, according to health experts who have also said that mandates are an effective tool to promote widespread vaccination.
