“It’s avoidable,” he said.
“All you have to do is go to any pediatric hospital right now, virtually anywhere in the country, and you see kids there who are suffering, some even dying, who don’t need to be in that situation if He was vaccinated,” he continued.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that About 78 percent of people 5 years of age and older in the US have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. About 66 percent are fully vaccinated.
Fauci also said, “We vaccinate children for many childhood diseases, where the mortality of those diseases is much lower than the mortality and morbidity of COVID-19 on children.”
“If you look at the number of kids going to the hospital right now who are getting seriously ill, you almost have to say that it is the responsibility of the parents to protect their child,” he said.
New York City reported a 400 percent increase in pediatric COVID-19 hospitalizations earlier this week, as the Omicron version sped through the city.
