Fauci’s Team Is Beginning To Turn On Him One By One
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will hold a roundtable discussion on the ethics of vaccine mandates Dec. 1, featuring a scientist from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s agent who will be making the case against forced vaccination for COVID-19.
Dr. Matthew Memoli is in charge of a clinical studies unit at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the agency headed by Dr. Fauci. Memoli will present the case against vaccine mandates at the NIH discussion. While Memoli has said he supports COVID-19 vaccination in high-risk populations, such as the elderly or obese, he emailed Fauci on July 30 to say that mandatory vaccination is “extraordinarily problematic.”
All NIH employees must be vaccinated before a Biden administration deadline on Nov. 22, and 88% of the employees of the agency are already in compliance. Memoli has applied for a religious exemption and said that he is committed and willing to risk his job over the NIH mandate.
Dr. Memoli maintains that blanket vaccinations of low-risk communities could impede the development of stronger immunity that comes from infection. He is in the minority opposing NIH doctors and the medical profession at large, as most doctors recommend getting vaccinated instead of relying solely on natural immunity for protection.
Memoli acknowledges that all of his kids have received their standard childhood vaccinations, and he is not “anti-vaccine” or opposed to all COVID-19 vaccinations: “I do vaccine trials. I, in fact, help create vaccines,” he said. “Part of my career is to share my expert opinions, right or wrong.…I mean, if they all end up saying I’m wrong, that’s fine. I want to have the discussion.”
A 16-year veteran of the NIH, Memoli recently received a 2021 NIH director’s award for his work on a national study of early-pandemic undiagnosed COVID-19 cases.
