Four-shot Fauci has surprising admission about vaccines after recovering from Covid

Dr. Anthony Fauci has reemerged to once again to lecture the American people about the alleged need for them to get tested, get vaccinated, get boosted, and wear a mask in light of the increasing spread of the BA.5 variant.

“It’s something we absolutely need to take seriously. It has a transmission advantage over the prior variants that were dominant … which is one of the reasons why we’re seeing throughout several regions of the country, including in particularly the New York area, you’re starting to see cases go up. So it needs to be taken seriously. Everybody wants to put this pandemic behind us and feel and hope that it doesn’t exist. It does, however,” he said Tuesday on MSNBC.

“The good news is that we have the capability and the tools to address it, and we just need to utilize those tools. For example, getting vaccinated if you’re not primarily vaccinated. If you’re due for a booster, use a booster. And when you’re in an area where you have a high dynamic of infection … wear a mask. Those are simple, doable things that can help prevent us from having even more of a problem than we’re having right now.”

His Tuesday appearance on MSNBC marked his first TV appearance since he contracted COVID himself in June.

Fauci repeated these refrains during a White House COVID press briefing later Tuesday afternoon.

“Immunity wanes, so it is critical to stay up to date with COVID 19 vaccines as primary vaccines and as boosters were appropriate,” he said.

Watch:

Yet despite all his calls for Americans to get vaccinated/boosted, he later admitted on Fox News’ “Your World” that the COVID vaccine itself isn’t that effective at preventing people from contracting the virus.

Mind you, in making this point, he stressed that the vaccine is optimal at preventing hospitalization and/or death.

“One of the things that’s clear from the data [is] that even though vaccines — because of the high degree of transmissibility of this virus — don’t protect overly well, as it were, against infection, they protect quite well against severe disease leading to hospitalization and death,” he said.

“And I believe that’s the reason why at my age, being vaccinated and boosted, even though it didn’t protect me against infection, I feel confident that it made a major role in protecting me from progressing to severe disease. And that’s very likely why I had a relatively mild course. So my message to people who seem confused because people who are vaccinated get infected — the answer is if you weren’t vaccinated, the likelihood [is] you would have had [a] more severe course than you did have when you were vaccinated.”

Listen:

While his point about getting vaccinated to reduce the risk of hospitalization/death was accurate, some critics wonder why there’s a need for a booster shot, let alone two booster shots, which is exactly what the administration is now pushing for.

“Many Americans are under-vaccinated, meaning they are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines. Not all people over the age of 50 have received their first booster dose. Of those who’ve received their first booster dose, only 28 percent of those over 50 have received a second booster dose,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said during Tuesday’s briefing.

“And of those over the age of 65, only 34 percent have received their second booster dose. So my message right now is very simple: It’s essential that these Americans … get their second booster shot right away.”

A second booster shot has thus far only been approved for those 50 and older, though the Biden administration is reportedly working to expand the eligibility to those under 50 as well.

“Biden administration officials are developing a plan to allow all adults to receive a second coronavirus booster shot, pending federal agency sign-offs, as the White House and health experts seek to blunt a virus surge that has sent hospitalizations to their highest levels since March 3,” The Washington Post reported Monday.

But again, why?
