Fallible Fauci doubles down on moving the herd immunity ‘goal posts’

Democrat darling and favorite progressive scientist and expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted last week that he doesn’t know and can only estimate what percentage of Americans need to be vaccinated to reach “herd immunity.” In fact, he depends on polling to decide the percentage needed.

After being called out on moving the goalposts to manipulate the American public, Fauci made the fatal mistake of doubling down on the insane confession. 

Herd immunity is achieved when a majority of a population has become immune because they have already had the disease, or they have been vaccinated against it. The percentage of the majority is in question, and Dr. Fauci doesn’t have an answer.

Fauci originally said that 70 percent of the population would need to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity,  but he has now moved up to 85 percent to 90 percent.

Fauci admitted that he proposed a lower number when polling data showed fewer people would be willing to take the vaccine. He has revised the percentage upward because polling now shows more people are willing to be vaccinated. Fauci said:

When polls stated solely about half of all People would take a vaccine, I used to be saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 %. Then, when newer surveys stated 60 % or extra would take it, I believed, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.

CNN’s Dana Bash asked Fauci why he wasn’t being “straight” with Americans from the beginning. Fauci defended his changing estimates:

We have to realize that we have to be humble and realize what we don’t know. These are pure estimates, and the calculations that I made — 70%, 75% — it’s a range. The range is going to be somewhere between 70% and 85%.”

Fauci admitted that his numbers are just an educated guess for him:

The bottom line it’s a guesstimate, and I gave a range, and I use discussion like we are having now to encourage people to get to that goal of 75% to 85% of the people vaccinated, and that is where we really want to be.”

The venerated infectious disease researcher was again called out on the shocking claims during an appearance with CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday, and again reiterated: “We have to realize that we have to be humble and realize what we don’t know. These are pure estimates, and the calculations that I made — 70%, 75% — it’s a range. The range is going to be somewhere between 70% and 85%.”

The immaculate and infallible Fauci has been exposed as neither. America needs to stop relying on his “expertise” to manage the COVID-19 epidemic.

  1. Well, we are heading into four years of infallible Leaders, leading our country to “Only God knows where”…Heaven Help us!! God Bless America!!

  2. What a dweeb this man is. He needs to be put out to pasture. He doesn’t estimate anything but guesstimates everything. Totally useless specimen.

  3. Seems faucci cannottell the difference berweeb
    N a goal post and a hole on the ground he should be FIRED but he want be he is incompetent

  4. Turn him off already! Fauci just wants his name in print or his voice on the airwaves. He hasn’t a clue as to how to treat or how to deal with this virus. He is greener than a lizard. Time to hang it up or just muzzle him.

    1. Like most so-called educated doctors; Dr. Anthony Fauci knows nothing and cures nothing! It’s all about the control of people’s lives. The Godless Democratic Party has taken its first step toward “totalitarianism.” Just look at how they suckered the American people to wear those silly and useless facial masks and the ridiculous social distancing that protect absolutely nothing.

      USAF (RET)

  5. How can this man use the word humble when he wouldn’t know it if it bit him on the arse! He’s a mealy mouthed little Napoleon! One of Killarys worshipers!
    If his tongue came notarized I wouldn’t believe him!

  6. You expect truth fom a leftist elite? How naive of you. This man professed his love for Hilary and is as leftwing as they come.

  7. Dr. Fauci .IN REGARDS to this article, you shoughted be so hard on yourself, i work in the medical work place sometimes we dont think right at that moment so it was not the end of the world the percentage. thats ok if you are off in a few percents. take care and have a wonderful day. you remine me of a dr. I worked for for many years. Take care and God Bless you always sincerely jackie

  8. Have never trusted this man. Any friend of Hillary Clinton and Obama cannot be telling the truth. It’s a shame so many people have listened to him.

  9. The shot for the virus has nothing to do with herd immunity. Herd immunity is being out and about so your body will build resistance against the virus. The shot will help quicker with the elderly, but most of the young people can build a resistance to it.

  10. I saw a posting of Dr. Fauci responding to the question about how his after affect of his vaccination two days ago. He began touching his right shoulder and making a face saying his arm was sore a couple days as expected. Then a split screen showed him receiving the vaccination in his left arm.

  11. We will not recognize our country in four years maybe sooner than that. Most of the working people are hated my the elites. If you don’t have money or if you can’t be one of the elites’ feel good projects then we are in the way.

    However, I do trust in a God that is bigger than they are.

    God bless America

  12. He’s a worthless POS. Cannot make up his mind on what is right or what should be done. He is a democrap and just waiting for Scarecrow to take over. I believe I read a week or so ago that he has a job with the other worthless ones. Of course worthless ones will take his word as science and go with that. We are the ones who will suffer. Please, President Trump, you have got to pull some tricks out of your sleeve.

  13. I am a virologist, and my virology textbook from the 1960’s gave the theoretical number for herd immunity as 85%. This is not a new concept, but it is hard to achieve 85% of anything in a population as fractious as ours right now. We have mainly the Demonrats and especially Barack Hussein Obama to thank for this. Never trust a man with two birth certificates and somebody else’s social security number.
