The lady senator wanted a yes or no answer. Aside from reporter Ron Flipkowski not accurately reporting what she actually said. Are they effective? Yes and no. They are effective at preventing death from Covid primarily early on after getting vaccinated. But the vaccines wane and a booster is required apparently every 5 or 6 months. It still doesn’t prevent you from getting it or from spreading it. And we don’t know yet if continuous boosting will eventually weaken a person’s immune system. So I understand why doctors want to give nuance answers. Instead of a yes or no.Yes - it isn't.
It's about comparative risks vs beneficial outcomes.
No indication in that last tweet (with video) you posted that anyone asked a question, unless perhaps you are referring to the FL Senator who was questioning the Surgeon General Nominee.
Is that who you are referring to ?
If it is, apparently you didn't listen to the actual exchange.
Despite the tweet claiming that the Surgeon General was asked about vaccines being "safe and effective" he was actually only asked whether they were effective.
It certainly can be ... depending on the severity.
COVID can cause it as well.
No, she didn't.
Try actually listening for a change.
I don't think so, given the preponderance of the evidence.
The more accurate answer would be YES.
The MOST ACCURATE ANSWER would be: yes, for the vast majority of the population, they are.
Nonetheless, the Surgeon General Nominee appeared to try and dance around and avoid giving that answer ... likely because he knew that it wasn't the answer his master wanted to be given.
Dr. Fauci would have stepped up and given the correct, most accurate answer.
That's the difference between between a (public health) professional ... and a clown ... who has his present job due solely to politics.
