As FBA has previously reported, Anthony Fauci, on Sunday lamented the “avoidable and preventable” deaths among people who are unvaccinated against the coronavirus now that vaccines are widely available in the United States.
Fauci was cautious enough to note that no vaccine is perfect, but said that it is clear that the majority of people dying or being hospitalized are the ones who were unvaccinated. Fauci urged people to put aside their partisanship and embrace the “highly, highly effective” vaccines. “We’re dealing with a historic situation with this pandemic, and we do have the tools to counter it,” he said. “So for goodness’ sake, put aside all of those differences and realize that the common enemy is the virus.”
Fauci also noted that the US had enough vaccines to vaccinate it’s entire population, as compared to some countries lacking the vaccines. “There are people throughout the world who would do anything to get vaccines,” he said. 600,000 people in the United States have lost their lives due to Covid-19, the rate is declining as the vaccines received government authorization and are being given to the public.
The Biden administration missed its goal to have at least 70 percent of U.S. adults receive their first dose of the vaccine by July 4, and several republican-leaning states are well behind the pace. Elected leaders and public health officials have struggled to overcome vaccine skepticism and reluctance in these areas, even when offering an array of giveaways and inducements like lotteries or free entertainment tickets.
