Did you enjoy the mask mandates that took our nation by storm as everyone panicked over COVID-19? No? Wait till the government steps in and orders you to get the vaccine. Many people choose not to get vaccinated for a number of reasons — the tiny amount of testing that has actually happened, religious and philosophical reasons, and more. It’s a very personal choice. But Democrat darling Anthony Fauci predicts vaccine mandates once the vaccine receives full approval.
“I have been of this opinion, and I remain of that opinion, that I do believe at the local level, Jake, there should be more mandates. There really should be,” Fauci told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday’s edition of “State of the Union.”
“We’re talking about life-and-death situation. We have lost 600,000 Americans already, and we’re still losing more people. There have been 4 million deaths worldwide. This is serious business. So, I am in favor of that,” Fauci says.
Currently, the vaccine is obtainable because of President Trump’s emergency authorization. But once the FDA approves the vaccines fully, that might change. Americans may be forced to get stuck by a needle if they want to perform even the most basic functions in society — work, go to a football game, or even enter a restaurant. Fauci explains:
I think the hesitancy at the local level of doing mandates is because the vaccines have not been officially fully approved. But people need to understand that the amount of data right now that shows a high degree of effectiveness and a high degree of safety is more than we have ever seen with emergency use authorization. So, these vaccines are as good as officially approved with all the I’s dotted and the T’s crossed. It hasn’t been done yet because the FDA has to do certain things, but it’s as good as done.
People should really understand that. But they are waiting now until you get an official approval before. And I think, when you do see the official approval, Jake, you are going to see a lot more mandates.
Will the US require COVID vaccines? We can’t know for sure until we see what the FDA has to say about the vaccine. But Democrats can be expected to try to force it on us.
