Vaccines will get full FDA approval, Fauci predicts

The Biden administration has been pushing a more aggressive vaccination campaign as the Delta variant continues to spread. POLITICO reported that the government is now administering less than 400,000 doses per day, a significant drop from the rush to get vaccinated seen only a few months ago.

“Although it’s understandable — quite understandable that some people might say, ‘Well, we want to wait for the full approval,’ that’s really only a technical issue,” Fauci said. “It’s the FDA dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. But there’s no doubt in my mind that these vaccines are going to get full approval because of the extraordinary amount of positive data.”

As the fall approaches and states figure out how to increase safe in-person learning for students, parents and educators debate who should wear a mask and when. Fauci said the guidance is clear — follow the CDC guidelines. If you’re unvaccinated, wear a mask, but if you’re vaccinated, it’s not necessary.

“The bottom line is we need to get the children back in school, in-person classes in the fall,” said Fauci.
