Fauci says he is an “example” for COVID-19 vaccinations

WASHINGTON – dr Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, says his recovery from COVID-19 is an “example” to the nation of the protection vaccines and booster shots provide.

During a White House briefing, Fauci, 81, said he had first virus symptoms on June 14 and tested positive a day later. On June 15, he was prescribed the antiviral drug Paxlovid, which has been shown to be highly effective in preventing serious illness and death from COVID-19.

“I’m still doing very well,” Fauci said Thursday, as the administration emphasized the protection vaccines provide for people of all ages after the U.S. became the first country in the world to extend immunization eligibility to children as young as six extended months.

“I think given my age, I’m an example of what we’re all talking about today,” Fauci said. “I’m vaccinated. I am double vaccinated. And I think if that weren’t the case, I probably wouldn’t be talking to you if you’re as good looking as I am I think right now. So everything is fine with Fauci.
