CDC Director Rochelle Walensky this week said the Covid-19 vaccines are unable to prevent transmission of the Delta variant.
“Our vaccines are working exceptionally well,” Walensky said then admitted they “cannot prevent transmission.”
Walensky also warned the vaccinated from infecting the unvaccinated.
“So if you’re going home to someone who is not vaccinated…I would suggest you wear a mask in public indoor settings,” Walensky said during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
That’s likely why CDC backed Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine booster shots for millions of people.
In September, Rochelle Walensky said that three groups “should” receive booster shots six months after their second dose: seniors 65 and over, nursing home residents, and adults at least 50 years old with “underlying medical conditions.”
CNBC host grills Fauci on vaccine ‘breakthrough’ cases
Dr. Fauci on Friday was grilled on CNBC about so-called Covid ‘breakthrough’ cases.
“Dr. Fauci, you guys have been pushing the vaccine and I understand why – I’m vaccinated, but I also have Covid and it spread through my entire family in the past few weeks,” CNBC host Sara Eisen said.
She continued, “And I just wonder about the public messaging around vaccinations. Three vaccinated people got Covid in my house, two unvaccinated children got it. Are you too casual about the limitations of the vaccine? Because it does feel to me that breakthroughs are happening, they’re happening regularly and we haven’t really seen the government pay much attention to them or warn about them!”
Fauci tried to interrupt Eisen, but she continued, “We were still able to get it and transmit it! Thank God we’re not in the hospital, I get it, I’m vaccinated but, you can get it and transmit it and the government hasn’t been warning about that!”
Fauci responded: “Oh yes I am! We have said that and let me give you the science and the facts.”
