WATCH IT: Fauci, DC mayor Bowser rejected as they sell COVID vaccine door-to-door

Dr. Anthony Fauci and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser were subject to intense scrutiny from man who refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine while Bowser and Fauci went door-to-door in a Washington, D.C., neighborhood promoting the vaccine in 2021. The exchange was documented by PBS for an upcoming program on Fauci as part of their “American Masters” series, which aims to help viewers “discover insightful profiles of important figures in America’s artistic and cultural life.” In a clip from the program titled “Dr. Fauci visits D.C. to battle vaccine hesitancy,” Fauci and Bowser are pictured in June 2021 walking the streets of Ward 8 of Anacostia in Southeast, D.C. – a historic African American neighborhood, that Fauci labled as “disenfranchised” with low vaccination levels. One man challenged the 80-year-old doctor and the Democratic mayor by saying “the people in America are not settled with the information that’s been given to us right now.” FAUCI REJECTS CLAIMS HE FROZE-OUT LAB-LEAK PROPONENTS, ENGAGED IN NIH FUNDING ‘BRIBE’ “So I’m not going to be lining up taking a shot on a vaccination for something that wasn’t clear in the first place,” he said. He pressed Facui and Bowser about the length of time it took to develop the vaccine, and said, “nine months is definitely not enough for nobody to be taking no vaccination that you all came up with.” Bowser defended the vaccinate by saying, “the only reason I’m talking to you right now, as close as we are, is that I’ve been vaccinated,” standing abut six feet from the man on the front porch of his home. “But if thousands of people like you don’t get vaccinated, you’re gonna let this virus continue to percolate in this country and in this world,” Bowser said. “Something like the common flu then, right?” the man interjected. Fauci defended the vaccine saying that the technology to develop it has been in the works for 20 years, and that while in 2020 approximately 30,000 people died of the flu, versus the reported 600,000 deaths by COVID-19 as of June 2021. DR. FAUCI CLAIMS A CORONAVIRUS LAB LEAK COULD STILL BE CONSIDERED A ‘NATURAL OCCURRENCE’ The man appeared unmoved, challenging the data saying “again, that’s you all’s number.” The man said he “definitely” would pass on getting vaccinated, “because when you start talking about paying people to get vaccinated when you start talking about incentivizing things to get people vaccinated, it’s something else going on with that.” “Y’all campaign is about fear. It’s about inciting fear in people. You all attack people with fear. That’s what this pandemic is. It’s a fear, it’s fear, this pandemic. That’s all it is,” he said as Fauci and Bowser walked away. Another woman also challenged the duo saying, “I heard that it [the vaccine] doesn’t cure it, and it doesn’t stop you from getting it.” “No,” Fauci replied. “On the very, very, very rare chance that you do get it even if you’re vaccinated. It’s a very, you don’t even feel sick. It’s like you don’t even know you got infected. It’s very, very good at protecting you.” RAND PAUL BLASTS FAUCI AFTER FREEZE-OUT ALLEGATIONS: A ‘FACT’ FAUCI ‘CONVINCED’ SCIENTISTS TO CHANGE MINDS According to vaccination data available on Mayor Bowser’s website, there have been at least 60,000 breakthrough COVID cases in her city. At another point, Bowser asked Fauci, “What are we gonna do about those other states?” referring to states that refused to mandate the vaccine. “Oh my god. They’re gonna keep the outbreak smoldering in the country,” Fauci replied. “It’s so crazy. I mean, they’re not doing it because they say they don’t want to do it, they’re Republicans. They don’t like to be told what to do. And we gotta break that. Unpack that,” he said. According to PBS, Fauci allowed cameras to follow him since 2021 for the upcoming program, which will air on March 21.
