Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases Director appeared on CNN's State of the Union Sunday to give his opinion on vaccine mandates. He agrees with the White House and President Biden himself, saying vaccination mandates should be the next step.
"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," Fauci told host Jake Tapper. "There really should be."
For fear of more people dying, Fauci strongly supports mandates. "We're talking about life and death situation. We have lost 600,000 Americans already, and we're still losing more people," Fauci said. "There have been 4 million deaths worldwide. This is serious business. So I am in favor of that."
