We went from “15 days to slow the spread” to “take an experimental vaccine or you can’t work, travel or go to a restaurant” in no time.
Dr. Fauci on Tuesday said vaccine mandates are needed in ‘certain circumstances’ during an appearance on MSNBC.
MSNBC host Willie Geist asked Fauci if vaccines should be mandated for teachers returning to the classroom this fall.
“I’m going to upset people on this but I think we should,” Fauci said. “I mean we are in a critical situation right now…. We are in a major surge now as we’re going into the fall, into the school season. This is very serious business.”
Fauci said mandates are not going to come from the federal government so local mandates are the way forward.
“I’m sorry I know people must like to have their individual freedom and not be told to do something, but I think that we’re in such a serious situation now, that under certain circumstances, mandates should be done,” Fauci said.
