VIDEO: Fauci’s Latest Demand Will Have Parents Fuming
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s latests demand for vaccine mandates is going to have many parents fuming. Parents are already upset at school districts for mandating masks for elementary school children now Fauci is demanding all children to be vaccinated.
“I believe that mandating vaccines for children to appear in school is a good idea,” the chief medical adviser for the White House said Sunday in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’ve done this for decades and decades, requiring polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis. So this would not be something new requiring vaccinations for children to come to school.”

During a separate interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Fauci said that the FDA “hopefully will be acting quickly” to the mRNA vaccine for children under 12.
“The data has been collected and we should have enough data by, I would say, the end of September, middle to end of September, early October, so that those data can then be presented to the FDA to examine for the risk benefit ratio of safety and effectiveness,” Fauci added.
Fauci also hinted that health officials may change how often a person will need a booster shot of the mRNA vaccine.
“We’re still sticking with the eight months,” Fauci said. “However, as we’ve said, even in the original statement that came out, we’re gonna have to go through the standard way of the (Food and Drug Administration) looking at the data and then the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. So although we’re sticking with eight, we’re remaining flexible, that if the data tells us differently, we’ll make adjustments accordingly. But for now, we’re sticking with the eight.”
