Former White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci changed his view of COVID vaccines from 2021 to 2024, clips show.

Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was influential in the U.S. response to COVID-19 in the Trump administration and under President Joe Biden. Fauci testified about his role in the U.S. response to the pandemic in front of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on Monday.

Daily Wire host Michael Knowles documented how Fauci’s views on the COVID vaccine changed from 2021 to 2024. In a pair of videos posted to X, Knowles documented Fauci’s public remarks in 2021 compared to the former NIAID head’s Monday testimony.

In the first clip, Fauci testifies to the subcommittee that “I don’t believe any vaccine is 100% effective.”

In 2021, Fauci said: “Although you don’t like to see breakthroughs, the fact is, this is one of the encouraging aspects about the efficacy of the vaccine. It will either protect you completely against infection – if you do get infected, the chances are you’re going to be without symptoms. And the chances are very likely that you’ll not be able to transmit it to other people.”

In the second clip, Fauci is first heard explaining to the subcommittee that the COVID vaccine’s efficacy at stopping transmission of the virus is a “complicated issue.”

“In the beginning, the first iteration of the vaccines did have an effect – not 100%, not a high effect – they did prevent infection and subsequently, obviously, transmission,” Fauci says. During the pandemic, the results of the vaccine were more murky, however, according to the former top health official.

“We did not know early on that became evident as the months went by is that the durability of protection against infection, and hence transmission, was relatively limited, whereas the duration of protection against severe disease, hospitalization, and deaths was more prolonged,” he testified.

In 2021, Fauci advocated strongly that the COVID vaccine stopped transmission and encouraged Americans, whether they were vulnerable to the virus or not, to get vaccinated.

“When you get vaccinated, you not only protect your own health [and] that of the family, but also you contribute to the community health by preventing the spread of the virus throughout the community,” Fauci said. “The more people you get vaccinated, the safer the entire community is.”
