Fauci Backs the Coronavirus Vaccine Mandate Backs Covid-19

As the extremely contagious Delta version of the Coronavirus continues to cause a surge in cases across the country, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, stated on Sunday that he supports COVID-19 vaccine regulations for children attending schools. Children under the age of 12 are currently ineligible to get the COVID-19 vaccination. In a separate interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Fauci stated that by early October, the US Food and Drug Administration should have enough evidence to decide whether the shot is safe for children under the age of 18.

Fauci said, “I believe that mandating vaccines for children to appear in school is a good idea. We’ve done this for decades and decades, requiring polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis vaccinations.” According to Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to the White House, there’s a reasonable chance that the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines will receive FDA approval for children under the age of 12 before the holiday season.

The spike in Coronavirus cases is already causing considerable problems as schools reopen for the autumn semester. According to data from the tracking website Burbio, dozens of schools around the country have had to postpone or cancel the start of the school year since August. Its data shows that the impact on schools has been greatest so far in the South, which is the hub of the current outbreak and has the lowest vaccination rates among those already eligible in the country.

According to industry leaders and state health officials, the reopening of schools is adding to a COVID-19 test supply deficit in the United States, as schools relaunch monitoring programmes that will require tens of millions of tests, as reported by Reuters last week.
