The national deputy elected by the Federal Capital, Javier Milei, confirmed that he received the two doses of Sinopharm vaccines, despite the fact that during the electoral campaign that led him to win a seat for the group La Libertad Avanza had raised his refusal to be immunized against the COVID-19 virus.

In statements transmitted to Infobae, the economist explained: “I had to get vaccinated because I don’t live off politics or the state. To bill I need to give lectures throughout the country and abroad “.

“I am not a parasite of the state. In fact, as of December 9, I will resign from my current job in the private sector so that there are no ethical conflicts or misunderstandings. And as I promised in the campaign, I will not charge my diet either, since I will raffle it among the citizens “, the libertarian reference abounded and added:” What will I live on? As I also promised in the campaign, a mechanism will be created so that the citizens themselves will decide how much they charge each month. This will be with an absolute process of transparency and within the framework of the public ethics law. I will not get a peso to the Argentines ”.

“These are the costs that I have to pay to continue defending the ideas of freedom beyond Argentina”he explained.

According to the information provided to this medium by her team of collaborators, Milei plans to give conferences in Miami, New York and Washington DC, as well as give talks in Uruguay, Chile, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador and Spain.

During the campaign, and especially in the debate that faced the candidates on television, Milei’s decision not to get vaccinated generated strong rejection both among her political opponents and also among sectors that questioned that non-immunization implied a negative message for health public, in times when infections still registered high levels and the number of victims from the virus did not decrease.

For him the COVID-19 vaccine is a question of cost benefit. He never manifested himself as an anti-vaccine person. In fact, in the debate he argued that his parents are vaccinated at his suggestion”, They explained from the environment of the elected deputy. However, the dissemination of the photo of the moment when Milei received her second dose generated a strong impact and went viral with criticism of her previous position.
