Did Dr. Fauci get richer during the pandemic? Look at his net worth
During the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been many heroes who stepped up to the plate when things got really scary. One of the most notable is Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases in the U.S.. If that’s not an impressive enough title, Fauci is also a physician and immunologist. Oh, and he also served as an advisor to every president since Ronald Raegan.
How much does he make?
Due to his crucial role in trying to keep the pandemic at bay, some might be curious as to what kind of payday he’s getting these days. Though we can only guess his net worth, past data lets us calculate that he’s probably making a solid figure.
In 2018, Fauci served as a Medical Officer at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. There, he made $384,000 after working at the National Institutes for around fourteen years, starting at a salary of approximately $200,000.
Another report stated that his earnings were 204 % higher than other medical officer’s salaries because of his expertise in treating infectious diseases. We can deduce, then, that Fauci is worth several million dollars. Celebritynetworth.com guesses that his net worth is in the “low millions” . . . “roughly $3 million and likely less than $10 million.” Not too shabby, Fauci!
How did Fauci get the NIH job?
Fauci was an impressive specimen from day one, beginning his medical career after graduating first in his class at Cornell Medical College. From there, he carried out his medical internship at what is now known as the New York-Presbyterial/Weill Cornell Medicine.
After the internship, Fauci joined the National Institute of Health as a clinical associate. Shortly after, he was appointed head of the Clinical Physiology Section of the Laboratory of Clinical Investigation.
As if that wasn’t cool enough, he was made Chief in the Laboratory of Immunoregulation. Finally, he was appointed director of the NIAID and refused George H.W. Bush’s offer to make him head of the NIH.
Fauci in the White House
Despite his initial refusal, Fauci eventually did make his way into the White House. His impressive resume led him to be named one of the most trusted medical figures in the U.S. by The New Yorker & The New York Times. Not only has he impressively handled the COVID-19 pandemic thus far, but he’s also done research on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, diarrheal diseases, malaria, Zika, and Ebola.
Fauci’s firm stance on the COVID-19 pandemic persists, emphasizing that testing & social-distancing are important for the eradication of the virus. Despite advising safety protocols he thinks best, Fauci has endured a lot of criticism – especially those politically right-wing. He has even suffered death threats.
Will Fauci make money from a COVID-19 vaccine?
There’s a rumor currently making its way around social media like Facebook claiming Fauci is poised to make millions of dollars off a COVID-19 vaccine. But no evidence supports the theory Fauci will make any money whatsoever off of a vaccine or treatment.
Fauci’s financial investments are made up mostly of bland mutual funds and money market funds that basically have no standing in the medical or vaccine industry. He owns hundreds, and maybe even thousands, of stocks in the Vanguard Small Cap Index, the Schwab Government Money Fund, and the CIBC Atlas Disciplined Equity Fund.
Whether or not you’re a fan of Dr. Fauci, it’s clear he’s striving to have a positive impact on the pandemic. And, though it’s not proven he’ll receive a payday from any future vaccine, we’ll recognize his efforts when the pandemic has subsided.
I ask this with the best of intentions: with regards to “but he’s also done research on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, diarrheal diseases, malaria, Zika, and Ebola.”August 30, 2021
What were the outcomes of his research?
Thanks for considering my question!

I couldn’t agree more@November 25, 2021
Your ignorance of Fauci is astonishing. He is an unmitigated disaster or have you been in a coma for 2 years. If you need help try reading Robert Kennedy Jr’s book “The Real Anthony Fauci…Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health.”
Kennedy is a solid democrat and has known Fauci for many years.
Dr.Robert Malone, a Physician, Vaccinologist & Scientist who developed the mRNA said Fauci is responsible for the death of over 500,000 people becausebig his effective blocking of proven therapies like Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, Regeneron et al with Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, B Complex et al.
Your fawning over this man who has been caught lying repeatedly by the U.S. Congress through his emails, shows your ignorance or your lack of any critical thinking skills whatsoever.November 25, 2021
Amen to that. I guess we’ll see in a year or two what he’s worth. This whole thing stinks after this last year and a half IMHO. Wear a mask, don’t wear one, wear two, get vaccine it’s almost 95% effective don’t you know, you can get this from surfaces, stay 6′ apart and wash your hands, don’t touch your face, unvaccinated people are the only ones spreading this thing and are killing people, vaccinated have same viral load as unvaccinated now, the vaccine is safe and effective, all have heard of some issues with that however, watch people get sick who are vaccinated and unvaccinated, lose people you love who are vaccinated and unvaccinated, blame the unvaccinated, watch federal leaders and employees not wear mask in public places and claim its ok since they are vaccinated then they get sick, get the vaccine get the vaccine, you need booster, you have to have a vaccine card, you had covid but you are shamed for not getting all the vaccines, you give blood and it’s great since you have the antibodies for this virus and maybe people will get your antibodies, still shamed and mandated to get vaccines, you need a booster. Trying hard to believe all the science and data but after this year and my long run on sentence, my BS radar is still going off!September 24, 2021
You covered almost all of it but read Robert Kennedy’s new book on Fraudci. It is a huge eye opener for us who already know Fraudci is a?disaster.November 25, 2021
Amen.November 27, 2021
Looks like you need to read the new book “The Real Anthony Fauci” by Robert F Kennedy, Jr (not even close to a right-winger). Maybe then you’ll update your post with some truth… a whole lot of digging uncovers it. He’s a disgusting, hypocritical pig who needs removed from his appointment and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.November 27, 2021
why do vaxxed fear unvaxxed when it’s unvaxxed who are in danger. (according to Pfouci) avoid the jabbed if possible.November 29, 2021
If even 10% of Kennedy’s book is true, Anthony Fauci is THE most prolific serial killer in the world’s history. He’s directly responsible for the deaths of thousands (maybe hundreds of thousands) of people world-wide. In addition to that figure,December 30, 2021
you can add an equal number people who have been damaged by Fauci’s vaccines
and medical experiments.
Someone, or some group, should take it upon themselves to fully investigate Fauci’s misdeeds since he has been head of the NIAID and bring appropriate criminal charges against this beast. He should be immediately fired from his government job and be incarcerated along with the “Jan 6th insurrectionists” in the D.C. jail where he’s stripped of his totalitarian power and can no longer
do any harm. The same goes for Bill Gates.
There is no way that Fauci’s net worth is in the low millions of dollars.
Dig deeper; he’s got to be worth closer to $1Billion. All the royalties and kickbacks from the big Pharmas, his annual salary, his vaccine patents, the billions of dollars of government $’s that he has had his hands on….You are naive if you’ll buy a figure of only one million dollars for his net worth.
