Although the CDC did not confront the protest outside of their building, Dr. Neetu Abad, a scientist and misinformation expert from the organization gave a statement to CBS46 saying that the CDC "is advocating that people take advice from trusted healthcare professionals. If somebody doesn’t have that background, then no, we don’t recommend listening to them. We know that COVID vaccines are safe and effective and they don’t affect men or women’s fertility."

The protest in Georgia comes as White House Officials denied the Grammy Award winner's claims that she was invited to have an in person meeting to learn more about the vaccine. As OK! previously reported, officials say they only reached out to Minaj to offer a "call."

"As we have with others, we offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she has about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine," a spokesperson told Fox News.

The mother-of-one took to social media to dispute the claims as she wrote, "Do y’all think that I would go on the Internet and lie about being invited to the … White House?"
