Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) got White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci to admit there is a lack of data showing that COVID-19 booster shots lower the rates of hospitalization or death in children on Thursday.
Fauci made a virtual appearance before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, where he gave an update to lawmakers on the Biden administration’s COVID-19 response. He did not appear in person because he tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week.
During his question time, Paul noted that the administration recommends that everyone over age five get vaccinated against the coronavirus, including taking a booster shot. “Are you aware of any studies that show reduction in hospitalization or death for children who take a booster?” Paul asked.

“Right now, there’s not enough data that has been accumulated, Senator Paul, to indicate that that’s the case,” Fauci answered. He began to explain that the government’s recommendation is based on an “assumption” regarding the morbidity and mortality of children in different age groups, but Paul cut him off.
