National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head Dr. Anthony Fauci said Friday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that it was “folly” to think you will be fine without getting vaccinated against the COVID-19.
Guest-host Tiffany Cross said a lot of people have a lot of questions. When I come across people who haven’t been vaccinated, they say, ‘I’ve been OK so far. I haven’t caught COVID. I’m more anxious about the vaccine than catching covid. What is your advice to those folks tonight?”
Fauci said, “I think they just need to look at the numbers that you just mentioned. Ninety-nine-point-five percent of the people who have been hospitalized and died and or died from COVID-19 are unvaccinated, and about 0.5 % are among the vaccinated individuals. If you look at the numbers you just mentioned, we have a large percentage of the new infections that we’re reporting every day
