Vaccines Will Get Full FDA Approval

Washington, (Washington Insider Magazine) –  Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden’s top medical adviser, spoke on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. He concluded that FDA vaccines will get full approval.

With the hundreds of millions of people around the world who have been vaccinated, this should “serve as evidence that the effectiveness and the safety of the vaccines are very high.” As of July 4, nearly “157 million Americans were fully vaccinated,” which is half of the population of the U.S.

Some people have been hesitant to get the vaccine, and some are waiting until the vaccines are no longer labeled as “emergency use authorization.” These people plan to wait until the vaccines are labeled “fully approved.”

On ABC’s “This Week,” Fauci told the host of the show, George Stephanopoulos, “There are certainly some people who when you use the terminology ‘emergency use authorization,’ they kind of think it’s a tenuous data showing that it works so that it’s safe. That’s not the case.”

President Biden and his officials have been using a more aggressive campaign concerning the vaccines as the Delta virus gets stronger and continues to spread. Politico reported, “The government is now administering less than 400,000 doses per day, a significant drop from the rush to get vaccinated seen only a few months ago.”

Fauci said, “Although it’s understandable – quite understandable — that some people might say, ‘Well, we want to wait for the full approval.’ That’s really only a technical issue. It’s the FDA dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. But there’s no doubt in my mind that these vaccines are going to get full approval because of the extraordinary amount of positive data.”

With autumn coming, the states all have to decide how to further the safe in-person learning not only for the students but also for the educators. There will also be a debate about the wearing of masks. Fauci’s remark is that the guidance is actually very clear – people must follow the CDC guidelines. “If you’re unvaccinated, wear a mask, but if you’re vaccinated, it’s not necessary.” Fauci concluded, “The bottom line is we need to get the children back in school, in-person classes in the fall.”
