Claim by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: “I never said that ‘no vaccine is safe and effective.’” rating: False (Lex Fridman, July 6: You’ve talked about that the media slanders you by calling you an anti-vaxxer, and you’ve said that you’re not anti-vaccine, you’re pro-safe vaccine. Difficult question: Can you name any vaccines that you think are good? Kennedy: I think some of the live virus vaccines are probably averting more problems than they’re causing. There’s no vaccine that is, you know, safe and effective.)

Both are benign and known side effects of COVID-19 vaccines. The study reported that these events were self-limiting and resolved within anywhere between a day to a week.)
