Dr. Fauci Tells Kids He Gave Santa the COVID-19 Vaccine

Dr. Fauci Told Kids He Personally Delivered the COVID-19 Vaccine to Santa at the North Pole

Dr. Anthony Fauci is reassuring kids who are worried about getting a visit from Santa Claus this year. During "The ABC's of Covid-19: A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall For Families" on Dec. 19, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases answered questions from children around the country. When one concerned boy had a question about how Santa Claus would deliver gifts amid the pandemic, Dr. Fauci had the perfect response.

"I took care of that for you," he said. "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. He can come down the chimney, he can leave the presents, he can leave, and you have nothing to worry about. Santa Claus is good to go." Watch the full video above to see the rest of Dr. Fauci's spot-on answers for curious kids.
