“You know, it's just too soon to tell,” says Dr. Fauci. “We've just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time. Let's focus like a laser on continuing to get those cases down and we can do it by people getting vaccinated.”
Dr. Fauci continued to say, “Also in the situation where boosters are appropriate to get people boosted because we know that they can help greatly in diminishing infection and diminishing advanced disease. The kinds of data that are now accumulating in real time.”
