Dr. Fauci tells TAMACC he has confidence in FDA, CDC approval process for virus vaccine

EL PASO, Texas -- The nation's top expert on infectious diseases shared his thoughts Thursday about the impact Covid-19 is having on the Hispanic community in Texas.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, participated in a webinar and discussion with the Texas Association of Mexican American Chambers of Commerce (TAMACC).

Fauci said he's seen racial disparities with this virus, with Blacks and Latinos at an increased risk for infection and complications due to socio-economic conditions that limits access to healthcare and treatment of underlying conditions.

He stressed that once there's a vaccine it's important for minorities to get it right away.

When asked about the anxiousness on how effective a vaccine will be, Fauci said he has full confidence in the approval process for it.

"I certainly trust the FDA, I trust the CDC, despite all that you're reading about, that they're going to be standing for science and safety. So when the vaccine is deemed to be safe and effective, I will take the vaccine and I will recommend to my family to take the vaccine," Fauci told the group.

A timeline for a vaccine is still unclear, but Fauci said two more phase-3 vaccine trials will likely start in the next month or so.

  1. Anyone affected directly by covid should receive a substantial government financial assistance. Like a one year salary payment. It’s not their fault Trump ignored the early warnings.

    1. Looking for more free crap? You don’t deserve jack shit. Take it up with the Chinese nitwit. Man are you so dumb. If a person gets the virus it is most likely their fault for not doing proper COVID19 mitigation.

      1. Hispanics deserve it. Trump must pay for his negligence. Maybe even consider taking some of that military gravy train and cut double dippers to help hispanics get through this. Everything should be on the table. One thing for sure: Hispanics did nothing to deserve this. Another thing for sure: Trump was and is still negligent. Let’s pass a massive covid stimulus to those affected!!!!

        1. Good hard working Hispanics deserve it not you lazy fat ass. President Trump is not responsible for your failure in life. That’s your fault. The military gravy train was earned not welfare like you get moron.

        1. Don’t worry alberto pedo muerto. You’ll get the COVID soon. You keep opening your crap to eat shit. Its just a matter of time. Figure it. You are old, dirty, unwashed, underlying medical conditions, (syphilis), dementia like sleepy Joe. Wait for it. You will get your wish.

          1. Those fools under the cotton bridge are your siblings from another daddy. Several daddys actually. alberto muerto the unwanted bastard of the lower valley.

          1. THose homeless siblings of yours under the cotton bride shure look shit brown to me alberto. Just like you. Useless, worthless, unwashed, drug addict pieces of shit. Your mommy told you already. You are worth nothing. Or even less.

    1. No but it is the orange buffoon’s fault that we have lost more people than any other country, that we still don’t have a coordinated national response, and that he continually downplays the virus and allows his uneducated white trash followers to attend rallies without masks, plus he continues to make false statements about the virus while refusing to listen to the health experts.

      1. Stop with your “Lack of a Coordinated National Response” non-sense. He’s provided that. You’re just too stupid to see it. We should really consider filing charges against Dr. Fauci. If he hadn’t banned Hyrdroxychloroquine, we could have saved a 100,000 more lives.

      2. You blaming President Trump for New York’s 32,000 COVID19 deaths? That’s obviously Cuomo’s fault. BTW – So based on your bogus claim he is responsible the whole world’s COVID19 deaths. You are a NITWIT!

      3. Lack of coordinated response? Wear a face mask, social distance and use hand sanitizer. Can’t get any more coordinated or easier than that. Keep it simple stupid.
