Fox host urges people to get vaccinated after avoiding potentially ‘dire’ situation

Fox personality Neil Cavuto has tested positive for COVID-19 and is using the opportunity to urge people to get vaccinated.
“While I’m somewhat stunned by this news, doctors tell me I’m lucky as well. Had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this would be a far more dire situation,” Cavuto, 63, said in a statement.
Cavuto has had health issues, including open heart surgery in 2016. He underwent cancer treatment in the 1980s and is living with multiple sclerosis.
A test came back after Monday, Oct. 18, 2021’s edition of “Your World with Neil Cavuto” and he was off air Tuesday. Fox’s internal protocols would have prevented him from entering the network’s studios.
“I hope anyone and everyone gets that message loud and clear. Get vaccinated, for yourself and everyone around you,” he said.
Even as many Fox hosts and guests continue to bash mandates, “passports” and the vaccine in general, the company has been requiring employees to report their vaccinnation status for months.
The network upped its testing requirement from weekly to daily in September 2021 for those who opted out of vaccinnation — and it says 90% of its workforce is vaccinated.
The network was also blasted after images from the opening of its new Washington, D.C., facility showed staffers masked up during the ribbon cutting ceremony. Like with vaccines, many of the network’s personalities have come out against mask requirements.
