Dr. Anthony Fauci tried to take credit for the swift development and rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine on Sunday, claiming that fast-tracking the vaccine was the “best decision” he ever made despite previously doubting an accelerated vaccine effort.
“When I saw what happened in New York City, almost overrunning of our health care system, it was like, ‘Oh my goodness,’” the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told CNN. “And that’s when it became very clear that the decision we made on January the 10th to go all out and develop a vaccine may have been the best decision that I’ve ever made with regard to an intervention as director of the institute.”
Fauci’s boss National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins told Axios in February that former President Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed deserves the credit for facilitating the creation of a COVID-19 vaccine in record time, but that didn’t stop Fauci from pretending that he didn’t spend the last year casting doubt on the administration’s vaccine efforts and goals.
At the beginning of the pandemic, shortly after he said Phase I vaccine trials wouldn’t begin for “three months,” Fauci claimed that “the fastest a vaccine could be ready for use on an emergency basis was one year, although the process could take up to two years.”
He doubled down on this narrative a couple of months later when he said it would take “at least a year to a year and a half to have a vaccine we can use.”
When the vaccine made its debut in the U.S. in December, Fauci reversed his narrative and began encouraging people to get the shot once it became available to them.
“We need to put to rest any concept that this was rushed in any inappropriate way. This is really solid,” Fauci said.
Despite his sudden hope for Operation Warp Speed’s vaccine rollout, Fauci continued to criticize the administration’s goals, telling NBC’s “Today” that he was “disappointed” that the U.S. did not meet the projection of “20 million doses into people today, by the end of the (year) 2020.”
Can we move past Dr. Fauci, he has become a joke.
The major hurdle was not developing a vaccine; it was getting through the bureaucratic testing and approval process, then proceeding along to production. It is usual practice to complete one step, analyze, proceed to the next step, analyze, etc, etc, then commence production. Trump took the risk to proceed along all paths simultaneously so that if the tests proved the vaccines safe and effective, we would already have them ready to distribute. It was a financial risk and it took someone that could think outside the political and bureaucratic box to get it accomplished.
Reverting back to the bureaucracy has gotten us a massive human catastrophe on our southern border.
The political left is going to give this clown an award for “curing the communist Chinese flu that Trump caused”, aren’t they?
Never forget, this narcissistic gnome “announced” the first approved vaccine the day after the election
Fauchi media whore has theme music
Oh Lord, it’s hard to be humble
When you’re perfect in every way
I can’t wait to look in the mirror
‘Cause I get better lookin’ each day
To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man
Oh Lord, it’s hard to be humble
But I’m doin’ the best that I can!
