    The director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Francis Collins said Sunday on “Meet the Press” that it was “certainly possible” that the Omicron variant will not be the last COVID-19 variant of the pandemic. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “It seems that a lot of scientists seem to be surprised how much this virus has mutated or how fast this virus is mutating. So I guess we’re to your sense of where we are headed? Look, I know we need to be vaccinated more around the world, but realistically we should we expect essentially a new dominant variant in...

    From L-R, NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, and NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins has warned it may take weeks before scientists ascertain the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines against the new omicron variant, which could be more contagious and have more mutations than the other strains. “We do know that this is a variant that has a lot of mutations — like 50 of them, and more than 30 of those in the spike protein, which is the part of the virus that attaches to your...

    Former New York Mets star Lenny Dykstra blasted left-wing, anti-gun activist David Hogg Sunday after the youngster tweeted that he is chagrined over the homelessness problem in Cambridge, Massachusetts, home of Harvard University. Hogg, who has become a left-wing hero for his constant woke posts on Twitter, won himself a place at prestigious Harvard even though at 1270, his SAT scores wouldn’t seem to merit his inclusion there — Harvard usually doesn’t even consider applicants unless they have a 1460 SAT or higher. And on Sunday, the anti-gun teen posted a tweet about how he often sees homeless people as...

    Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), uttered a lot of words on Sunday when asked by Fox News' Trace Gallagher about Florida's low Covid-19 numbers despite a lack of lockdowns or mandates. However, unfortunately for him and fortunately for those of us who want to see more people see through these clowns, none of those words had anything to do with answering the actual question. Introducing the topic while filling in for Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday," Gallagher brought up a chart showing vaccination rates and new case percentages in New York, Maine, Michigan,...

    (snip) NIH Director Francis Collins has a stern message for the American public: The country has, what he called, an epidemic of misinformation and disinformation. And it’s fueling a dangerous distrust in science. “Conspiracies are winning here. Truth is losing. That’s a really serious indictment of the way in which our society seems to be traveling,” said Collins, who will soon step down as the National Institutes of Health director after serving in both Republican and Democratic administrations.

WestOctober 5, 2021, 11:43 AMFrancis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has just announced his intention to step down at the end of 2021 after more than 12 years heading the agency. The accolades are already rolling in. Noted evangelical political commentator David French, for example, rushed to praise Collins as “a national treasure.”But Collins’s real legacy is anything but praiseworthy, and the tendency of figures in the faith community to ignore his real record is far from admirable. This year of all years should have made the truth...

    Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announced his resignation on Tuesday, just weeks after documents exposed that he made “untruthful” comments about U.S. federal funding of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. “It has been an incredible privilege to lead this great agency for more than a decade,” Collins said in a statement posted at the NIH website. I love this agency and its people so deeply that the decision to step down was a difficult one, done in close counsel with my wife, Diane Baker, and my family. I am proud of all...

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has notified Congress that it will transfer an additional $589 million, some of which comes from funding marked for COVID-19 vaccination efforts, to its program to shelter unaccompanied migrant children who have entered the U.S. at the southern border -- part of more than $4 billion that has been diverted to the program this year. HHS informed Congress that it is diverting $225 million in National Institute of Health (NIH) funding that was part of the December COVID-19 relief bill to the unaccompanied children (UAC) program, as well as $364 million in...

    With vaccine hesitancy rates still prominent across multiple states, public health and government officials alike have been strategizing on the best way to encourage positive sentiment towards the COVID-19 vaccine. Recent Census data reveals that a plurality of people are reticent to get vaccinated due to a fear of side effects. An average of 15.6 percent of American adults report being hesitant about receiving one of the approved vaccines. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institute of Health (NIH), went on NBC News to assure people that there is “no comparison” between potential risks versus the benefits of being vaccinated...

    National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that raising concerns over COVID-19 cases among migrates at the U.S.-Mexico border is a “distraction.” In a video, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said, “Whatever variance are around the world, they are coming across that southern border, so he’s not shutting down the virus. He’s helping to facilitate it in our country.” Anchor Chris Wallace said, “You talk about dealing with the science, dealing with facts, I’m going to ask you about that.

    Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Sunday that the U.S. would be 'absolutely prepared' to offer a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine 'very quickly' to the wider population if required. [CUT] about 3 percent of U.S. adults— are authorized to get a third dose of the vaccine. That includes people who are vulnerable due to organ transplants, certain cancers, diseases or other disorders. When asked about plans for how to distribute the booster shots, Fauci told CBS's Margaret Brennan on Face the Nation on Sunday that immunocompromised individuals can 'get...

    Reaction to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, giving a university a taxpayer-funded grant to conduct experiments using beagles has been vicious, with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) leading the response. That activist organization told Breitbart News that Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, which oversees NIAID, should be fired from her post. “It’s high time to fire NIH director Francis Collins for mismanagement of NIH, waste of taxpayer funds and the continuation of animal experiments that are replaceable by vastly superior, modern, technological breakthrough...

    Earlier this week, Director of the National Institutes of Health Dr. Francis Collins appeared on CNN. There he dispenses some of the weirdest advice of the COVID era. He tells parents to wear masks at home around their own children if those children are unvaccinated, but the parents are.COVID vaccines aren’t even yet approved for kids below 12. So that’s an issue. Another is the fact that COVID still is very unlikely to spread to or from kids. They’re not vectors for this virus. Still, Dr. Collins clearly says to wear masks at home around your kids, even admitting that...

    (CNN)To avoid lockdowns, people in the United States will have to do things that they won't necessarily want to do, such as wearing masks at indoor gatherings even if they're vaccinated and having kids mask up in schools, the director of the National Institutes of Health said Monday. "We want to avoid lockdowns at all costs, but that means we're going to have to do some other things that won't necessarily be welcomed by people," Dr. Francis Collins said on ABC's "Good Morning America" when asked how he saw the fall playing out. Those unwelcome things include vaccinated people wearing...

    This Sunday, the public also heard from Dr. Anthony Fauci's boss, Dr. Francis Collins, the head of the NIH. On "Fox News Sunday," Dr. Collins spoke with Dana Perino, who was filling in for Chris Wallace. On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced new guidelines that students, staff, and teachers at K-12 schools wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. Of particular interest and concern, then, is the idea of children under 12, who are not even eligible to be vaccinated yet, should have to wear masks. Such guidelines have drawn particular ire. As Perino and Collins discussed: PERINO:...
