Fauci On COVID: “No Guarantee Vaccine Actually Going To Be Effective”

During testimony before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci stated he is “cautiously optimistic” that a COVID-19 vaccine candidate will get an efficacy signal, but said, “there’s no guarantee that the vaccine is actually going to be effective.”

“There’s no guarantee that the vaccine is actually going to be effective,” Fauci told the senators after being asked about the rapid development of a coronavirus vaccine.

“You can have everything you think that’s in place and you don’t induce the kind of immune response that turns out to be protective and durably protective,” he continued. “So one of the big unknowns is, will it be effective? Given the way the body responds to viruses of this type, I’m cautiously optimistic that we will with one of the candidates get an efficacy signal.”

Fauci also touched on the possibility of an “enhancement effect” where the vaccine induces a suboptimal response and a person who is exposed experiences an enhanced pathogenesis of the disease.

Despite these possibilities, Fauci remains “cautiously optimistic” a vaccine with an efficacy percentage high enough to induce a herd immunity will be found.

  1. IT IS ABOUT TIME FOR TRUMP TO SAY GOOD BYE TO MR. FRAUDCI. NOT ONLY SAYING GOOD BYE, BUT ALSO: I DON’T REGRET YOU!
    I CANsNOT BELIEVE THAT A SO CALLED EXPERT FOR OVER 36 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE COMMITTED SO MANY MISTAKES IN HIS OWN FIELD!
    FELLOW REPUBLICANS, LET’S HIRE SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE JOB. 15 MISTAKES ARE NO LONGER MISTAKES, BUT CRIMES! LIKE THE ETHIOPIAN (CEO), CHINA, WE HAVE BEEN ALL MISLEAD BY MR.FRAUDCI UNCLUDING PELOCI, SLEEPY, PSYCHO JOE, A. COME, DEBLASIO ETC…….
    SO. TELL DEMONS , GOOD MORNING FATHER DEMON, HE’S GOING TO KILL YOU,SO WE JUST SAY: GOOD MORNING SATAN-DEMON THAT’S SET. HIS TIME IS UP MR, THE PRESIDENT. DON’T HESITATE ANY MORE: FIRE, FIRE, FIRE HIM!

  2. No guarantee. That’s because NO vaccine is guaranteed to fight what it was meant for, but it IS guaranteed to put harmful chemicals like Mercury into your system.
    I’ll never, EVER take another vaccine!

    1. This Fauci guy needs to be in prison. Why hasn’t trump fired his lying, sneak. Panic spreading, giving money to china to create covid19 butt!

      Fauci has zero value to any of us.

  3. Fauci and obama gave $3.7 million to the wuhan lab to create covid19. Then they have itvrekeased to blow up the world economy. The trump can not run on trump amazing economic record. Then the Democrats hope to win in november.

    This is a plan that soros, Bloomberg, strayer, Fauci, and obama pt together 7 years ago just in case they needed it.
    Looks like they needed it.

    You want to get even for the economic lock down stay home rules? Vote Republican

    1. So sorry you’re completely bonkers. Either that, or living an nightmare town. What sources for your “facts” about the virus conspiracy? Please take your meds!

  4. Fauci has been working on a vaccine for Aids for how long. So what are we supposed to do Fauci wait 30 years for a vaccine? I think we can build herd immunity faster than that so we have no option, open the damn country and go to work.

  5. How can it be a vaccine for the virus if it’s not effective? That doesn’t make any sense. We already have vaccines that are not effective. Does this man know what he is talking about? It doesn’t sound like he does. Some wino off the streets could have told us that.

  6. I like how he scares the hell out of people, then after the people hear that they run and tell the world, the he comes back with, well MAYBE it won’t be that bad. By then the damage is done. He says he isn’t the end all , but what he says on the tv they take and run with it so they, are the end all! Time to divide this country in two and start the killing because that is the only way to end it.

  7. Why wouldn’t Dr. Fauci say honestly that it is impossible, if not useless, creating a vaccine against viruses?
    The best way to address viruses is to boost the immune system. Yes, there will be a surge of COVID19 cases once this quarantine is over simply because
    it will catch up with people who are afraid to leave their homes. People should not be afraid to expose themselves to this virus except for the immunocompromised.

  8. Dr Fauci has given all the advice he can afford to give and should remain silent when asked any thing that has to do with policy. There is no vaccine at this time and no one can predict when an approved will be available. There are a number of medical protocols and available drugs that seem to help. The nation can no longer afford to remain at home while the economy craters around us . We are not fools. We cannot sit around with our heads in the ground waiting for a magic potion to come dump itself in our laps, although the drug and medical people are doing everything all around the world to overcome this Chinese catastrophe. It is becoming apparent the virus, while dangerous as can be, has stats no worse than some of the diseases, viruses, whatever that we are also faced with. Time to go back to work and live our lives. As for the schools, we began this with intelligence that the age group our children are in is the least at risk. Some one tell the chicken littles to shut up and get out of the way. We already have enough things to worry about!

  9. Fauci is a real piece of work. He’s supposed to be an expert on viruses, but every damned move he has suggested has been wrong. He now states that the economy can’t be reopened until there is a vaccine for the virus, even though I’m sure he knows that there doesn’t appear to be such a thing as a virus prevention vaccine-even the standard flu vaccine is only about 50% effective (that means that half of the people who get the vaccine still get the flu). When Fauci notified the folks that a potential vaccine has been developed for COVID-19, what he said was the virus brought about a 31% improvement when the vaccine is given (it didn’t prevent the virus from infecting people, it didn’t keep anyone from dying, it simply reduced the hospital stay for an infected person from 15 days to 11 days-there’s your 31% improvement). If the US is going to continue as a viable country, we need to find a cure for Dr. Fauci.

  10. I think the time has come for Dr Fauci to step aside and let the adults take over to get our country back.

  11. Very simply put dr. Fauci is a George soros foot soldier who is working for China and against our country.
