Dr. Anthony Fauci examines vaccines adequacy in ‘Your World’

White House chief, medical examiner Dr. Anthony Fauci, yielded that COVID-19 vaccines don’t safeguard “excessively well” against contamination Tuesday on “Your World.”

DR. FAUCI: One of the things that are obvious from the information is that even though vaccines – on account of the severe level of contagiousness of this infection – don’t safeguard excessively well, so to speak, against infection, they protect very nicely against extreme sickness prompting hospitalization and demise. Furthermore, I trust that is the reason, Neil, why at my age, being immunized and supported, even though it didn’t safeguard me against contamination, I feel sure that it did a significant job in shielding me from advancing to severe sickness. Furthermore, that is probably why I had a moderately gentle course. So my message to individuals who appear to be confounded because individuals who are vaccinated get infected – the response is on the off chance that you weren’t inoculated, the probability is you would have had a more severe course than you had when you were vaccinated.
