Dr Anthony Fauci vaccinated with Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine

Anthony Fauci was among the first employees of the National Institutes of Health to be vaccinated against Covid-19, administered in the same auditorium where he first arrived at the NIH as a fellow 52 years ago. Fauci, the U.S. government’s leading infectious disease physician, received the vaccine from Moderna Inc. with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and NIH Director Francis Collins, and six frontline health workers at NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Groundwork for Moderna’s messenger RNA vaccine began with a collaboration between the NIH and the company before the pandemic began, Collins said. “What we are seeing now is the culmination of years of research,” Fauci said. The public vaccination ritual for senior health officials is part of an effort to build confidence in vaccines that were developed in record time and amid political wrangling over when to authorize vaccines. Fauci, who turns 80 on Thursday, noted that he was receiving the vaccine in part because he still sees patients as attending physicians at the NIH Clinical Center, but also to send a message “to the rest of the country that I feel a extreme confidence in the safety and efficacy of this vaccine. He gave a thumbs-up after receiving the bullet in his left arm.
