Contrary to an article published online, Dr. Anthony Fauci did not say COVID-19 vaccines "did not work as advertised" and that "the vaccinated are in great danger" during a recorded interview.
The claim in the article is a misrepresentation of remarks made by Fauci during his recent appearance on The New York Times podcast The Daily. Nowhere in the conversation did Fauci say the vaccines did not work as advertised or that those vaccinated are in great danger.
Fauci did acknowledge that officials are starting to see some waning immunity against both infection and hospitalization with the vaccines. He said this is no different than other vaccines that need boosters, including many childhood vaccines.
Fauci has strongly and consistently advocated vaccination against COVID-19. He has endorsed "getting people more vaccinated" and administering booster shots to those already vaccinated.
