“People aren’t really opposed, but they do need a push, a push and a drag,” joked DC Mayor Muriel Bowser.
- Former U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci and Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) went door-to-door throughout the Anacostia neighborhood to “battle vaccine hesitancy,” according to a video that comes as part of a PBS documentary.
- “What are we going to do about those other states,” asked the mayor, referring to states that do not enforce citizens to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
- “They’re going to keep the outbreak smoldering in the country. It’s so crazy,” Fauci responded.
- “I mean, they’re not doing it because they say they don’t want to do it, they’re Republicans, they don’t like to be told what to do, and we gotta break that,” the former NIH leader went on to say.
- When one woman told Fauci she heard the vaccine is not effective at preventing illness, Fauci said that there is a “rare chance” of contracting COVID once vaccinated, claiming that the vaccine is “very, very good at protecting you.”
ANTI-COVID VAX CITIZEN CONFRONTS FAUCI:
- “The people in America are not settled with the information that has been given to us right now, so I’m not gonna be lining up to take a shot or a vaccination for something that wasn’t clear in the first place,” one man said.
- “And then, you all create a shot in miraculous time,” the man continued.
- Fauci told the Anacostia citizen that twenty years’ worth of “science” went into the covid vaccine “approach.”
- The man later added, “When you start talking about paying people to get vaccinated, when you start talking about incentivizing things to get people vaccinated, it’s something else going on with that.”
- “It is something else going on with that, you’re right,” the mayor admitted.
- A meta-analysis using 65 studies from 19 different countries found that natural immunity is more effective in safeguarding against future COVID infection than the vaccine.
- The analysis noted that the level of protection from past infection by variant and over time is “at least equivalent if not greater than that provided by two-dose mRNA vaccines.”
- Natural immunity is almost 85% effective at protecting against future infection after initial infection, according to the analysis.
