Biden administration COVID-19 adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said over the weekend that he hopes CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccines will be fully approved by federal drug regulators in “the next few weeks,” noting in another interview that he believes a “flood” of vaccine mandates will be handed down after that.
With full Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, it’s likely that more institutions and businesses will begin to issue vaccine mandates. Currently, vaccines made by Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson are being distributed under FDA emergency use authorization.
Speaking on NBC on Aug. 8, Fauci, also the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that he hopes that “it will be within the next few weeks” and “within the month of August.”
If the FDA approves the vaccine, Fauci said, he believes it will drive more Americans to be vaccinated. On Aug. 7, he told USA Today that he expects numerous vaccine-related mandates will be implemented by private entities after they receive FDA approval.
“Organizations, enterprises, universities, colleges that have been reluctant to mandate at the local level will feel much more confident,” he said. “They can say, ‘If you want to come to this college or this university, you’ve got to get vaccinated. If you want to work in this plant, you have to get vaccinated. If you want to work in this enterprise, you’ve got to get vaccinated. If you want to work in this hospital, you’ve got to get vaccinated.’”- READ MORE
