Hannity pleads with his viewers to get vaccinated: 'I believe in the science of vaccination'

On Hannity Monday night, Fox News primetime host, Sean Hannity, urged his viewers to get the COVID-19 vaccination.

"Please take COVID seriously," begged Hannity. "I can't say it enough. Enough people have died. We don't need anymore death. Research like crazy. Talk to your doctor, your doctors, medical professionals you trust based on your unique medical history, your current medical condition, and you and your doctor make a very important decision for your own safety. Take it seriously."

Preliminary data from several states has shown that over the past few months, 99.5% of the people who have died from COVID were unvaccinated, and Hannity's plea comes as the Delta variant, which is now the dominant strain in the United States, spreads throughout the country.

It absolutely makes sense for many Americans to get vaccinated. I believe in science, I believe in the science of vaccinationSean Hannity

Hannity's push for the vaccine Monday is in stark contrast to other Fox News primetime hosts like Tucker Carlson, who, in the hour right before Hannity, told his viewers, “There are a lot of those people giving you medical advice on television, and you should ignore them. The advice they’re giving you isn’t designed to help, it’s designed to make you comply. And you shouldn’t comply mindlessly.”

While Carlson continues to question the vaccine, Hannity made it clear he trusts it. "It absolutely makes sense for many Americans to get vaccinated. I believe in science, I believe in the science of vaccination," Hannity said.

But while Hannity pleaded with his viewers to get vaccinated, the primetime host also noted that it's important to do the research first.

"There are people too, very rare cases, but they are out there, where people have serious underlying health conditions that can be aggravated by the vaccine," Hannity said, before adding, "That is why it is important you research, talk to your doctor, your doctors, et cetera, and you make the decision in conjunction with your doctor, research on your own that is best for you."

Hannity airs weeknights at 9 p.m. on Fox News.
