Matthew McConaughey Says He's Against COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates for Kids

“I couldn’t mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids. I still want to find out more information,” Matthew shared in a conversation with DealBook Online Summit.

Matthew‘s comments come after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use in children ages 5 to 11 last week.

Matthew then revealed that both he and wife, Camila Alves, are both vaccinated.

“I’m vaccinated. My wife’s vaccinated. I didn’t do it because someone told me I had to — [I] chose to do it,” Matthew said. “Do I think that there’s any kind of scam or conspiracy theory? Hell no. We all got to get off that narrative. There’s not a conspiracy theory on the vaccines.”

But for now, Matthew and Camila are getting their three kids – sons Levi, 13, and Livingston, 8, and daughter Vida, 11 – vaccinated yet.

“Right now I’m not vaccinating mine, I’ll tell you that,” Matthew added.

In another recent interview, Matthew McConaughey opened up about possibly running for office one day.
