The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Sunday set the record straight against Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s false statement that 100,000 children are hospitalized in serious condition and “many” on ventilators, due to COVID-19.
“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in…in serious condition and many on ventilators” Justice Sotomayor said Friday. Walensky appeared on “Fox News Sunday” where host Bret Baier asked her directly about the Justices comment, and asking her to clarify that numbers show there are fewer than 3,500 children currently being treated with COVID-19.
“Yeah” said Walensky. She quickly moved on to advocate for vaccination saying “but, you know, here’s what I can tell you about our pediatric hospitalizations now. First of all, the vast majority of children who are in the hospital are unvaccinated, and for those children who are not eligible for vaccination, we do know they are most likely to get sick with COVID if their family members aren’t vaccinated.”
Walensky’s statements closely follow the Biden administration’s rhetoric that it is the unvaccinated – of any age – that is “fueling” the pandemic. Baier asked Walensky if she felt responsibility to set the record straight on the exaggerated COVID-19 numbers being spread throughout the Biden administration, liberal media, and now a Supreme Court Justice.
Vehemently staying on message, Walensky responded, “Yeah, here’s what I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you that, right now, 17 — if you’re unvaccinated, you’re 17 times more likely to be in the hospital and 20 times more likely to die than if you’re boosted.”
“And so, what my responsibility is, is to provide guidance and recommendations to protect the American people. Those recommendations strongly recommend vaccination for our children above the age of 5 and boosting for everyone above the age of 18 if they’re eligible” she concluded.

Biden: ‘We Need More Money to Plan for the Second Pandemic’
There’s nothing more reassuring than a President telling Americans that no matter how much they are suffering, more is coming.
Biden was asked the question “how many of the nation’s kids will you be able to get vaccinated before you need more money from Congress?”
“We’ll get through at least this year. We, we do need more money. But we don’t just need more money for vaccines for children eventually…”
And then Biden said this harrowing statement: “We need more money to plan for the second pandemic.”
He then emphasizes, “there’s going to be another pandemic. We have to think ahead. And that’s not something the last outfit did very well; that’s something we’ve been doing fairly well” he adds before concluding, “that’s why we need the money.”
