Dr. Anthony Fauci has an important message for children – Santa Claus has been vaccinated. So, there’s no need to worry about Santa Claus contracting COVID-19, while he’s making this year’s Christmas deliveries.
Dr. Fauci made the claim during a ‘Sesame Street Town Hall‘ on CNN – hosted by Elmo.
The revelation came when a 6-year-old asked, “Will Santa still be able to visit me with coronavirus this season? What if he can’t go to anyone’s house or near his reindeer?” Fauci responded, “I took a trip up there to the North Pole. I went there and I vaccinated Santa Claus, myself. I measured his level of immunity, and he is good to go. Santa Claus is good to go.”
Dr. Fauci has previously claimed that Santa was already immune to coronavirus, so the vaccination must have been performed “just to be on the safe side.”
