When some concerned kids asked how Santa Claus could safely deliver gifts amid the pandemic, Dr. Fauci had the perfect response.

"I took care of that for you," he said. "I took a trip up there to the North Pole; I went there and I vaccinated Santa Claus myself. I measured his level of immunity, and he is good to go.
