Hazel's intelligence was average, thus, there was no reason to give her a mental handicap.

"Hazel saw him wince. Having no mental handicap herself, she had to ask George what the latest sound had been."


Harrison Bergeron

Hazel is handicapped because her intelligence is not all that high and so she simply sees everything exactly as the Handicapper General wants her to see things.
