Republican Alabama governor says 'it's time to start blaming the unvaccinated'
Alabama Governor Kay Ivey called out Americans who have refused to get vaccinated against coronavirus as her state and others across the South are hammered by new infections - with three states in the region now accounting for 40 percent of active cases nationwide.
'Folks are supposed to have common sense. But it's time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It's the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down,' Ivey, a Republican, told reporters on Thursday.
