Johnson pushes Ivermectin and vaccine conspiracies despite federal warning

Sen. Ron Johnson has made multiple podcast and radio appearances this week in which he pushes Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 while fear mongering about vaccinations. And heís continued to do so, even after clear warnings that his message is dangerous.

Johnson, who has regularly argued for the use of unproven drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin as treatments for COVID-19, appeared on the shows of Wisconsin right wing radio host Vicki McKenna and Washington Times opinion editor Cheryl Chumley to criticize the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)ís decision to fully authorize Pfizerís COVID-19 vaccine and advocate for people to take Ivermectin to treat the disease.

Ivermectin is commonly used to deworm livestock, and although it is approved for use in humans to treat parasitic infection, has not been shown to be effective at preventing COVID-19 infection or treating patients with the disease.

This week, following a prominent push by figures such as Johnson on right wing media outlets such as Fox News, the FDA was forced to put out a warning against the use of Ivermectin.

1. Tractor Supply wishes to thank

him for the business. By the way, they also sell Penicillin in its raw, untested form for animals too.
