New COVID-19 Variant 'Sensationalized' by Fauci, White House
In response to warnings issued by White House adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and HHS secretary Xavier Becerra about a new COVID-19 subvariant, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) accused them of failing to provide key facts.
“How come the flu vaccine changes every year and they’re not willing to change this vaccine?” Paul told Fox News on Tuesday. “Now, you might have me with an argument. I’ll listen to you if you tell me, ‘We’ve got a new vaccine that actually has something to do with the current virus,'” he said.
According to Fauci, most COVID-19 vaccines don't offer "overly good protection" against the latest variant. Nevertheless, he claimed that they were effective at limiting the symptoms of severe disease.
