Fox News’ host Will Cain raised uncomfortable questions Monday night during “Primetime” asking about the COVID vaccine’s efficacy after a fully-vaccinated Colin Powell passed away from complications related to the virus.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell had multiple myeloma, a deadly form of blood cancer. The left is now spinning his cancer as having an effect on his immune response to the vaccine, making it more difficult to fight the virus. He was 84.
From the beginning, the left and authorities have said those that are immunocompromised should get the COVID vaccination to protect themselves from the virus. Now, following Powell’s death, leftists and the media are claiming that Powell being immunocompromised caused the vaccine to not work for him.
Cain pointed out the fact that Powell had been fully inoculated. “But that observation, and any questions it may raise, are violations of the one true commandment: thou shall get the shot. Or shots, whatever, how many shots,” he stated.

He asked a number of questions that most Americans are asking. Cain said that Powell’s case “may be an outlier” but then asked, “does this tell us anything about the effectiveness of the vaccine?”
“For that matter, what does it mean that Powell was fully vaccinated?” he asked. “What does fully vaccinated mean? Is that two shots from Pfizer? From Moderna? Is a booster required to be considered fully vaccinated? What if you’re in the vulnerable demographic? Are you fully vaccinated if you haven’t had a booster?”
“When, for example, was Powell vaccinated? Was it six months ago or was it two months ago? How long does the vaccine last? Did he get a booster? How recently did he get the booster?” he continued. “I’m not asking questions to invade Colin Powell’s privacy. These are questions for all of us.”
Powell’s assistant Peggy Cifrino informed The Washington Post that Powell was “actually scheduled to receive his booster when he fell ill last week.”
Cain went on to question the vaccines even more during the segment. He ended by declaring that he was offering “no opinion here” on the vaccine itself.
“I’m not giving you the conclusion, like so many others. I’m not leading you to vaccine hesitancy or hectoring you on the other end of the spectrum into getting the shot. Anyone who suggests otherwise is lying to you. And they will lie to you. And they will edit out this part of this segment. I’m trusting you with the facts and asking questions that, as of yet, no one has answered correctly and they haven’t even answered consistently. Least of all, the Covidians,” Cain concluded.
Earlier in the morning following the news breaking that Powell had passed, Cain began questioning the efficacy of the vaccine. That line of questioning continued later in the day.
“There will be many conversations in wake of this death, there will be honoring this man, this public servant, this human being, who was a professional soldier for 35 years,” he remarked. “We can reflect on his life and we should. There also be conversations about the fact he was fully vaccinated, according to his family and he died from complications from COVID.”
“We are beginning to see statistics like this grow in frequency,” Cain added. “We know the vaccine does wane over time in its ability to protect you from not just its transmission and infection but severe complications and hospitalization and obvious, death well. We know it’s beginning to spill over COVID into the vaccinated population.”
“Again, Colin Powell in the direct age demographic that suffers the most from complications from COVID,” he continued. “but I think everyone watching needs to be aware of limitations — and protections — that we all have all offered ourselves through this pandemic in all of this potential risk.”
