During his interview with Kurtz on Fox’s “MediaBuzz,” Cavuto also disclosed that he was “feeling better” having undergone monoclonal antibody treatment, and revealed that his wife had also contracted Covid-19.
The veteran Fox News host went on to say that, although he “appreciates” getting the Covid-19 vaccine is a personal choice, he strongly urges people to do so and hopes they reject the politicization of the vaccines, stating that the issue is “not about left or right.”
“I feel very strongly … that people get vaccinated … I’d like to urge people of all sorts to please get vaccinated,” he told Kurtz, adding that people who have received a dose of the vaccine are in a “much better position to survive” a Covid-19 diagnosis. “Take the political speaking points and toss them,” he added. “I beg you, toss them.”
Per Yahoo Entertainment, Cavuto’s promotion of the Covid-19 vaccines has been echoed by some of his fellow Fox News colleagues, including Bill Hemmer, Dana Perino, Bret Baier, and Greg Gutfeld, each of whom have been quite vocal about getting their shots.
However, comments made by popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson are at odds with Cavuto’s recent vaccine plea. Per Insider, Carlson has made a string of controversial claims regarding the safety of Covid-19 vaccines, and has even told his millions of viewers to ignore “medical advice on television.”
