On Monday evening, Fox News star Tucker Carlson used his segment to cast doubt on the efficacy and importance of COVID-19 vaccines — raising fears that an already-paranoid segment of Republican households will refuse to get vaccinated, and give the virus a safe harbor to keep spreading, with more deaths in its wake.

"All of this should invite some pretty tough questions for our public health experts in this country," said Carlson. "And one of those questions is, how effective is this coronavirus vaccine? How necessary is it to take the vaccine? Don't dismiss those questions from 'anti-vaxxers.' Don't kick people off social media for asking them. Answer the question!"

Commenters on social media slammed Carlson for casting doubt on science and medicine, and potentially putting the population at further risk.
