Fauci waffles on CNN, won’t say whether fully immunized grandparents can visit with grandchildren

Dr. Anthony Fauci is at it again. He is confusing the public with his failure to answer simple epidemiological questions that he allegedly is the expert on addressing.

In a recent interview with CNN’s Dana Bash he is asked if grandparents who have been full immunized can spend time in person with grandchildren who may not have been immunized. Well, isn’t that the point of getting immunized?

“You know I’m not going to make a recommendations except to say, these are things that we really do everyday, Dana” he tells Bash. While I’m wondering what the heck is he saying with that opening comment.

“We look at that, we look at the data, we look at what’s evolving about how many people are getting vaccinated and there will be recommendations coming out, I don’t want to make a recommendation now on public T.V.”

He just waffles. He doesn’t answer the simple question: can people with full immunizations go back to normal life?

I was immunized with almost every vaccine when I was a child because I was traveling into a region that had severe outbreaks of various diseases at the time. I had to travel to Saudi Arabia at the age of six with my family. We traveled throughout the Middle East and Africa for the next eight years. I was not placed on any lockdowns during that time and in fact, was exposed to anything prevalent in the environment.

Sure, it can be frighting to know there are viruses out there that can target humans beings but we have had those diseases since the dawn of human beings. Thankfully, we live in a time where we can develop vaccines to fight off dangerous viruses and save lives.

Immunization is one of modern medicine’s greatest success stories. Time and again, the international community has endorsed the value of vaccines and immunization to prevent and control a large number of infectious and, increasingly, cancers and other chronic diseases.

Expanding access to immunization is crucial to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Not only do vaccinations prevent sickness and death associated with infectious diseases such as diarrhoea, measles, pneumonia, polio and whooping cough, they also hold up broader gains in education and economic development.

If we are building heard immunity and vaccinating the most vulnerable in our population, at what point does the mask wearing and lockdowns end?

I’m not a doctor but I do have common sense. I also believe most people have common sense, except evidently Dr. Fauci, who I believe is politicizing science. The question is why? Who in the administration is giving him marching orders to tread carefully on simple scientific questions?

If he’s not politicizing the epidemic we need to be asking him much harder follow up questions. Why can’t we can’t see our grandparents after the full immunizations have been given? Why can’t we visit family? When can we go to church? Why do you think the grocery store is safer than the church at this time?

Is the scientific community worried the vaccines are going to fail? Is there some other virus out there we don’t know about?

And if the answer is no to all of the above, what are you going to say to all the Americans who are on the verge of losing businesses, jobs or already have?

What do you have to say to all the people, children and families who have witnessed depression, drug addiction and abuse grip their lives during the government’s mandated lockdowns over the past year?

I’m frankly getting tired of these games. I know my friends and family are too. We need to expect more from these so called experts and the truth would be a great start.
