Fox host Neil Cavuto: ‘It’s not about left or right, not who’s conservative or liberal. Last time I checked, everyone, regardless of political persuasion, is coming down with this’
After discussing breakthrough cases and the fact that he has multiple sclerosis, Cavuto said to viewers, “I would like to urge people of all sorts to please get vaccinated.”
“The situation for me being immunocompromised, half the cases we’re hearing on the breakthrough front are among the immunocompromised, people like me who had and have multiple sclerosis or prior heart situations or cancer,” Cavuto added.
The Fox News host continued, “There are many like that all around us, and mine is no secret at Fox. But there are plenty of people around you, Howie, at Fox and all types of business environments who are susceptible to this kind of thing. You can help them out a lot.”

Cavuto went on, “If you can get vaccinated and think of someone else and what it could mean for them and their survivability for something like this, we’ll all be better off.”
He then said this wasn’t about party.
“I can’t stress this enough, Cavuto said. “It’s not about left or right, not who’s conservative or liberal. Last time I checked, everyone, regardless of political persuasion, is coming down with this.”
“Had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this would be a far more dire situation.”

Cavuto: ‘Think of people around you’
“Take the political speaking points and toss them,” the anchor said. “For now, I’m begging you, toss them! And think of what’s good not only for yourself but those around you. If you think it’s a pain in the ass, I get that. But think of people around you.”
“I daresay, people who have experienced this or have seen loved ones affected by this or died from this are not judging the wisdom of mandates,” he warned. “They’re wishing they got vaccinated, and they didn’t.”
“Don’t let that happen,” Cavuto finished.
