The Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use authorisation of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, rolling it out in the United States on December 12.

Dr Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) had ‘serious’ concerns about the vaccine rollout due to Anti-vaxxers.

People who are specifically concerned about vaccines are called Anti-vaxxers who challenge ingredients and the health concerns of a vaccine that has not been tested for even ten years, to see the outcome of effects that it may cause in future before taking it.

Fauci told The Dealy Beast that without the public’s trust in the vaccine, it could rise in a large problem that could convince health workers that the vaccine is bad — he added: “We may run into the problem in which too few people get inoculated for the vaccine to turn the pandemic around.”

“My primary biggest fear is that a substantial proportion of the people will be hesitant to get vaccinated.”

A tactic often used in media and many other forms of manipulation are to make convincing lifelines that the vaccine is good for someone, in terms of showing celebrities to take it live on TV which allows the ‘Anti-vaxxer’ to become less sceptical about the outcomes as a result.

“But once you get, you know, tens of millions of people vaccinated, it looks like it’s working and it’s safe. I think we’ll win over a large proportion of the rest of the population, who might have some hesitancy about getting vaccinated,” said Fauci said.

Fauci hopes the process will unfold ‘smoothly’ in hopes that it will be the beginning of an important era in attacking the COVID-19 pandemic.
