Fauci Says DeSantis Is 'Completely Incorrect' To Call Vaccine A Mere Personal Choice

NPR – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is “completely incorrect” to suggest vaccines are a personal choice with no broad implications, says Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease authority.

Fauci said after being asked about DeSantis’ views during an interview Tuesday with CNN:

“If [DeSantis] feels that vaccines are not important for people, that they’re just important for some people, that’s completely incorrect.”

Vaccines have been the solution to public health crises such as smallpox, polio and measles, Fauci said — but they rely on wide adoption to work, he added.

“When you’re dealing with an outbreak of an infectious disease, it isn’t only about you,” Fauci said. “There’s a societal responsibility that we all have.”

DeSantis said in a news conference Friday that vaccines help people to avoid severe illness from COVID-19. But instead of saying everyone who’s eligible should be vaccinated, the governor added a caveat.

“At the end of the day though, it’s about your health and whether you want that protection or not,” DeSantis said. “It really doesn’t impact me or anyone else.”

The unvaccinated are a vehicle for spreading the virus
In response to DeSantis’ comments, Fauci said on Tuesday: “Yeah, that’s not true at all.”

Aside from the personal benefit of being protected against the coronavirus, Fauci said:

“When you have a virus that’s circulating in the community and you are not vaccinated, you are part of the problem. Because you’re allowing yourself to be a vehicle for the virus to be spreading to someone else.”
