n an interview with NewsGuard the day before Instagram removed his page for spreading dangerous misinformation, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. discussed the COVID-19 vaccine and the coronavirus pandemic. Citing his experience in assessing related scientific issues he encountered in his career as an environmental lawyer, Kennedy has fashioned himself a crusader against Big Pharma and the government health apparatus that he says props it up.

In addition to other assertions, Kennedy described Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as “an abject failure” who profits personally by promoting vaccines, and made the unsubstantiated claim that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are dangerous.

NewsGuard’s interview has been edited for length and clarity. The transcript below is annotated in italics, with fact checks responding to Kennedy’s claims.
