In Washington, D.C., a local resident shocked Dr. Anthony Fauci and Mayor Muriel Bowser by refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine and claiming that the government was propagating a campaign of fear.
Fauci and Bowser visited Anacostia residents to address vaccine hesitancy when they encountered a resident who was unwilling to engage in discussions about the vaccine.
“The people in America are not settled with the information that’s been given to us right now. So I’m not going to be lining up taking a shot for a vaccination for something that wasn’t clear in the first place and then you all create a shot in miraculous time. It takes years to create a vaccination-” the man said before Bowser and Fauci interrupted him and began talking over one another.
“Well, it used to take years but do you know how many years were invested in this approach? About 20 years of science to get this-” Fauci said before the man cut him off.
Dr. Fauci went to the hood to pressure black people to get vaccinated.
Little did Fauci know his career would be destroyed the 1st door he knocked on.

“20 years is not enough and nine months is definitely not enough for nobody to be taking a vaccination that y’all came up with,” the man fired back.
“The only reason we’re talking to you right now as close as we are is because I’ve been vaccinated,” Bowser said. “But if thousands of people like you don’t get vaccinated, you’re going to let this virus continue to percolate in this country and in this world.”
“Something like the common flu then,” the man said before Fauci and Bowser argued this point.
The man then held his ground on not getting vaccinated.
“When you start talking about paying people to get vaccinated, when you start talking about incentivizing things to get people vaccinated, there’s something else going on with that.”
Things became increasingly heated before Bowser walked away with the man shouting, "Your campaign is about fear."
