Fauci is telling Americans not only to ban unvaccinated people from entering businesses but also on Holiday feasts.
‘We’re dealing with a serious enough situation now that if there’s an unvaccinated person, I would say, ‘I’m very sorry, but not this time. Maybe another time when this is all over,” said Fauci in an interview with MSNBC on Tuesday night.
Fauci has heavily pushed Americans to receive both shots of the COVID-19 vaccine as well as an additional booster shot as the New Year Approaches. On Friday, he even admitted that changing the definition of “fully vaccinated” because of the booster shot was “certainly on the table.”
On Wednesday, Fauci also suggested that even vaccinated family members may want to avoid holiday gatherings to the Omicron variant. During a news briefing with the White House COVID-19 task force, Fauci advised people, even those who were vaccinated and boosted, to “stay away” from large gatherings of 30-50 people.
“And that’s the reason why people should if they invite people over their home, essentially ask and maybe require that people show evidence that they are vaccinated, or give their honest and good faith word that they have been vaccinated,” Fauci said.
