Gov. Kay Ivey Tuesday reaffirmed her opposition to COVID vaccine mandates, while needling President Biden for his flip-flop on the issue. Speaking to a Kiwanis Club meeting in Montgomery, Ivey said she encourages Alabamians to get vaccinated. "What I most certainly will not do, is require a mandate to force you to take a vaccine," Ivey said. "I don't think government at any level should be able to mandate what you do about yourself and your body," Ivey added, to applause. The governor called that, just months ago, Biden held the same position. "I did agree with President-elect Joe Biden last December, when he said vaccines would not be mandatory. Evidently, he's getting a little forgetful," Ivey quipped, amid laughter.
