In a video shared by Rebel News Wednesday, White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said that there is “no time” to conduct clinical trials to approve more COVID-19 boosters.
Fauci, who is also director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), first said it is safe to assume the vaccine is more effective than previous vaccines, given that it’s aimed at a specific strain.
“When you have a [sic] updated vaccine that serves as a booster as it were and is directed against the dominant circulating strain that’s in society, you have every reason to believe that that is going to be better than having a vaccine that isn’t highly specific to the circulating strain.”
Then Fauci said the efficacy of the booster has not been proven, because there is “no time” for a clinical trial.
“It hasn’t been proven in a clinical trial because we don’t have time to do a clinical trial because we have to get the vaccine out now because we have such a situation throughout the world and certainly the United States. We’re having 400 deaths a day and up to 5,000 hospitals a day – hospitalizations.”
