Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledges he will “upset people” with his opinion on whether teachers should be mandated to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
During an appearance on “Morning Joe” Tuesday, Fauci was asked if he agrees with Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, who recently said he believes teachers should be vaccinated.
When asked if he thinks teachers should be mandated to get vaccinated, Fauci said, “I’m going to upset people on this, but I think we should.”
He added, “We are in a critical situation now. We’ve had 615,000 plus deaths, and we are in a major surge now as we’re going into the fall, into the school season. This is very serious business.”
The leading health expert explained, “You’re not going to get mandates centrally from the federal government.”

He continued, “I’m sorry. I know people must like to have their individual freedom and not be told to do something, but I think we’re in such a serious situation now that under certain circumstances, mandates should be done.” – READ MORE
