One could easily argue that millions of Americans are hesitant to get vaccinated for COVID-19 due to the fact that the so-called “experts,” like Dr. Tony Fauci, have repeatedly flip-flopped on various points related to the pandemic, leaving many confused.
According to the Daily Caller, Fauci once again left many scratching their heads as he was unable to explain during a CNN interview why Americans who’ve previously had COVID-19 are still required to receive vaccinations, given the fact that many believe they may have natural immunity that, in some cases, could be more effective than the vaccine itself.
Fauci doesn’t know
The latest round of confusion came about during a CNN interview, when the network’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, surprisingly acknowledged the results of a bombshell study in Israel that has seemingly disrupted the Biden administration’s narrative.
The study concluded that those who’ve had COVID-19 infections were much less likely to be infected or experience problems from the virus than those who’ve not been infected and have had both doses of a vaccine.
In addition, the study concluded that “previously infected people were more protected if they had one dose of the Pfizer vaccine,” according to the Daily Caller.
Again, surprisingly, Gupta asked Fauci why previously infected people should receive a vaccine. He also asked the infectious disease expert how, given the new information from the Israeli study, he would convince previously vaccinated people to take a vaccine at this point.
“You know, that’s a really good point, Sanjay. I don’t have a really firm answer for you on that,” Fauci said, as the Daily Caller reported. “That’s something that we’re going to have to discuss regarding the durability of the response.”
It was clear from the interview that Fauci didn’t seem prepared to answer the question, so he immediately and subtly called into question some of the aspects of the study.
“The one thing the paper from Israel didn’t tell you is whether or not as high as the protection is with natural infection – what’s the durability compared to the durability of a vaccine?” Fauci asked, according to the Daily Caller.
He added: “So it is conceivable that you got infected, you’re protected, but you may not be protected for an indefinite period of time.”
Fauci went on to admit that the study’s results are something that requires experts to “sit down and discuss seriously,” adding, “because you very appropriately pointed out it is an issue, and there could be an argument for saying what you said.”
At this point, there’s no telling what future studies might reveal, and it’s not surprising that millions of Americans continue to wait until the “experts” are able to definitively clarify what, if any, benefits there are for previously infected people to opt for a vaccine.
