Families should create their own vaccine mandates before gatherings for the holidays, Fauci says

While the world seems to be in a total panic as a result of the very contagious Omicron variant, the health experts in our country are constantly warning about possible winter Covid-19 wave despite the decent vaccination rates most of the states have.

In an effort to keep everyone safe and avoid the last year’s winter Covid-19 scenario, the latest idea from Dr. Fauci is funny and weird in the same time. According to Fauci, every family should make their own Covid-19 vaccine mandate before the holiday gatherings and ask themselves to show proof of vaccination.

This is what Dr. Fauci said in a recent interview with The Washington Post.

“When you get vaccinated, and you have a vaccinated group, and you are in an indoor setting, you can enjoy, as we have traditionally over the years, dinners and gatherings within the home with people who are vaccinated,” Fauci says.

“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.”

Just like any other public appearance, Dr. Fauci once again encouraged the public to get vaccinated claiming that the vaccines are the best weapon we have in battling the deadly virus and despite not being 100% effective, vaccines keep the fully vaccinated out of hospital in most of the cases.

“So, vaccinated puts you in a much different position than the extreme vulnerability of people who are not vaccinated, because all you have to do is look at the data and look at those areas of the country, those states, those communities that are under-vaccinated,” Fauci said.

“There’s no doubt they have a much higher degree of infection, a much higher degree of hospitalization, and a much higher degree of death.”

As of December 8, nearly 60% of the whole American population is fully vaccinated.
