McCain expressed her “frustration” with Fauci’s talk during an interview with CNN, in which he refused to recommend whether it was safe for grandparents who received the new coronavirus vaccine to meet their grandchildren who had not yet received the vaccine.
“I don’t want to make a recommendation on TV now,” Fauchi said. “I want to meet the team to look into this matter.”
On Monday’s episode, McCain (36 years) said, “The fact that Fauchi cannot tell me whether it is safe to have dinner with my family if I get vaccinated is terribly inconsistent messages.”
McCain criticized the vaccination program because of the long waiting period and that it might take up to several years for everyone to get the vaccine. By replacing Fauchi with someone who “understands science”, so that “we can reach what other countries have learned” in the stages of vaccinating their own populations.
The daughter of the late Republican senator criticized former US President Donald Trump and said that he was responsible for launching the vaccination campaign in this way.
Although McCain expressed her desire to be “responsible” and waited for her turn to be vaccinated, she described the program “a disaster” and said she should have been vaccinated.
But McCain faced a storm of sharp criticism on social networking sites, and some called for her dismissal, and some accused her of trying to use her family name to obtain the vaccine, and asked her to wait in line like other Americans.
