Fauci and Walensky Refute Tucker Carlson’s Anti-Vaccine Guest Alex Berenson


Members of the White House Covid-19 Response Team and public health officials have emphatically rejected unsubstantiated claims by a guest on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show that vaccines are “dangerous and ineffective.”

When asked to respond to Alex Berenson’s comments online, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, pointed to data showing that people who are vaccinated and boosted against the disease are “68 times less likely to die than if they are not vaccinated. ”

“Our hospitals are full of people who are not vaccinated,” he said on January 26.

White House top medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said “the facts are staggeringly obvious when you look at hospitalization and deaths among the unvaccinated, the vaccinated, the vaccinated and the boosted.”

“There really isn’t much to say about it, but to say the facts speak for themselves,” he added.

During an appearance on tucker carlson tonight On Tuesday night, Berenson stated that the mRNA Covid-19 vaccines “must be withdrawn from the market now”.

“Nobody should have them. No one should get a boost. Nobody should get a double boost. They are a dangerous and ineffective product at this time,” he said.

Such denial, amplified on right-wing networks and rampant in self-publishing on platforms like Substack, strikes squarely against medical research and hospital data.

At the end of 2021, the rate of infection among unvaccinated Americans was more than double the rate of infections among the vaccinated, according to the CDC.

Another CDC analysis released last week found that one dose of Moderna or Pfizer reduces the chance of hospitalization by 90 percent compared to unvaccinated people, and reduces the chance of an emergency room trip by 82 percent. percent.

On Wednesday, Dr. Walensky highlighted the continuing overall burden of infections in the US that has strained many local health systems, noting the overwhelming number of unvaccinated people in hospitals and emphasizing that milder infection from the Omicron variant does not necessarily mean softer

“It is critically important that people stay up-to-date on CDC-recommended vaccines,” said Dr. Walensky. “I know a lot of people are tired, but many of our hospitals are still struggling beyond capacity.”


About half of all eligible adults in the US have received a booster dose, including 70 percent of all eligible seniors, officials announced Wednesday.
