‘I Believe In Science’: Sean Hannity Urges Viewers To Get Vaccinated As Fox News Changes Tune On COVID



Sean Hannity

Several Fox News hosts on Monday urged viewers of the network to get vaccinated against COVID-19, dismissing conspiracy theories about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine.

Host Sean Hannity on Monday made an impassionate appeal for viewers to get vaccinated against the deadly virus.

“Please take COVID seriously, I can’t say it enough. Enough people have died. We don’t need any more deaths,” Hannity said on his primetime series. “Research like crazy, talk to your doctor, your doctors, medical professionals you trust based on your unique medical history, your current medical condition, and you and your doctor make a very important decision for your own safety. Take it seriously.”

“I believe in science, I believe in the science of vaccination,” he added. He also stressed the importance of “medical privacy” and “doctor-patient confidentiality.”

The comments from Hannity come as Fox News figures have come under immense criticism recently over comments about coronavirus-related restrictions, lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccines and the pandemic overall.

Fellow Fox New hosts Steve Doocy and Bill Hemmer also made statements in support of vaccinations on Monday.

“Well, here’s the thing. And one of the CDC officials said yesterday, look, the pandemic right now is really just with people who have not been vaccinated. Ninety-nine percent of the people who died have not been vaccinated. What they are trying to do is make sure that all of the people who have not been vaccinated get vaccinated,” Steve Doocy said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”

“Unfortunately, and this is one of the reasons apparently that Joe Biden and the administration came out last week, the administration very frustrated. They have not been able to get Facebook to get rid of some of the disinformation. The disinformation is online: The vaccine is killing lots and lots of people or it changes your DNA or there are little microchips. None of that is true.”

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt also address the recent concerted effort coming from the White House to fight the proliferation of vaccine misinformation, Doocy spoke directly to viewers, saying, “If you have the chance, get the shot, it will save your life.”

During a separate segment on Monday’s “Fox & Friends,” co-host and anchor Bill Hemmer asked Fox News medical contributor Marc Siegel: “The vaccine works, right? We haven’t budged on that, have we, doc?”

“The vaccine works extremely well even against the delta variant, preventing infection in 90 percent of cases,” Siegel responded.
