Former White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said she wasn’t surprised Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci contracted COVID despite being double-vaccinated and double boosted, because she always “knew” the shots wouldn’t prevent infection.
And because of that, Birx said Friday on Fox News, only the new Pfizer treatment called Paxlovid “is going to save you now.”
“I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection and I think we overplayed the vaccines, and it made people then worry that it’s not going to protect against severe disease and hospitalization,” Birx told “Your World” host Neil Cavuto.
Former White House Covid Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx to Neil: "50% of the people who died from the omicron surge were older, vaccinated. So that's why I'm saying even if you're vaccinated and boosted, if you're unvaccinated right now, the key is testing and paxolovid." pic.twitter.com/1oB62gFdCJ
