Fauci: Three Shots Will Be Required To Be ‘Fully Vaccinated”… How Soon Before It’s Four Shots?
Dr. Anthony Fauci recently defended the Biden Administration’s recommendation to get COVID-19 vaccine booster shots, saying that three doses of an mRNA vaccine could be the standard for a full vaccination.
“I would not at all be surprised that the adequate, full regimen for vaccination will likely be three doses,” he said during a briefing of the White House coronavirus response team.
However, he did say that regulators will have to make that determination.
Fauci presented Israeli data showing the waning immunity to the virus after about eight months. This, he said, supported the rationale for the necessity of getting booster shots.
After more delta variant cases surged in Israel in early summer, the number of positive cases and severe COVID-related illnesses rose among vaccinated individuals. By then, many Israelis had been vaccinated for more than half a year.
