Matthew McConaughey doesn’t think children should be forced to get the COVID-19 vaccine, confirming his own three children have not been jabbed.
“I couldn’t mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids,” the “Dallas Buyers Club” actor, 52, recently said in an interview with the New York Times when asked if the vaccine should be mandated for children. “I still want to find out more information.”
He added, “There will come a time where you’re going to have to roll the dice one way or the other and go: ‘Where are the numbers in my favor?’”
McConaughey — who was mulling over a run for Texas governor earlier this year — and his wife, Camila Alves, 39, share three kids: Levi, 13, Vida, 11, and 8-year-old Livingston.
The “Greenlights” author, who is vaccinated, explained that he’s not against the vaccination of children but doesn’t see the need to mandate them, adding that he won’t be vaccinating his own children for the time being.
“Right now I’m not vaccinating mine, I’ll tell you that,” he said.
