Let’s not get into name-calling, please. In defense of Dr. Fauci, first, the guy has been doing interviews nonstop for 6-7 months, trying to explain medical commonsense to people in the midst of horrible mis- and dis-information about COVID emanating nonstop from the White House. He just turned 80, and he must be exhausted. God bless the man. Second, I think that his statement was not unreasonable, perhaps erring on the side of caution even when there is insufficient data to draw any firm conclusions one way or another. Maybe he will reconsider his position after having a chance to think about it. The GBS Foundation’s position is equally reasonable, although the absence of data may not be the most solid basis for concluding that the vaccine is safe for GBS patients. We just don’t know one way or the other, do we?
