Fauci Supports a Vaccine Mandate for All Teachers

Dr. Anthony Fauci says COVID-19 vaccines should be mandatory for schoolteachers, citing the need to protect children who are too young to be vaccinated during a pandemic that has grown worse with the spread of the delta variant.

“I’m going to upset some people on this, but I think we should [require teacher vaccinations],” Fauci said Tuesday morning in an interview on MSNBC.

“I mean, we are in a critical situation now,” he said. “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 mandates won’t come from the federal level, said Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who is also President Biden’s chief medical adviser on COVID-19.
