Fauci: People who are not fully vaccinated will have problems

People who have not taken two vaccines and booster doses against the coronavirus will run into trouble, warns President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci. This will be a problem especially in autumn and winter.

If you’re not up to date with vaccines or booster doses, take them now or get ready for the harsh winter Fauci told CNBS.

According to the epidemiologist the percentage of vaccinated people and those who also opted for booster doses is unsatisfactory in the US.

As estimated by the Kaiser Family Foundation, on July 21, almost 228 million, or about 70 percent. Americans were unvaccinated, did not receive two vaccinations or the first booster dose. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 48.4 percent. of people aged five and over took the first booster dose and the second booster only 30.9%. adults aged 50 and over who qualify.

Fauci identified as a possible reason for this, the belief that many people do not include themselves in the high-risk population, that is, the elderly or the sick. However, as those who become infected, he warned, even without major complications, prolong the life of the virus and allow it to adapt more.

Sub-variant BA.5 Omikron, the country’s dominant strain of Covid, may partially avoid vaccine-induced protective antibodies. But that’s not a reason to avoid vaccines. Some protection against infection is better than no infection, and vaccines are still extremely effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death – Biden’s medical advisor argues.
