Infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has reinforced the World Health Organization’s (WHO) argument on the need to impose a mandatory vaccination mandate even though he recognizes that vaccines may not prevent the spread of infection.
Fauci, who recently admitted to deceiving Americans in order to increase the number of people vaccinated without scientific support, now seeks to influence public opinion to accept the vaccines without relieving the isolation measures, as demanded by the WHO.
Last week, Soumya Swaminathan, a WHO scientist, noted that there are still doubts about the effectiveness of vaccination in preventing infection.
“At the moment I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on,” she said.
“I think until we know more; we need to assume that people who have been vaccinated need to take the same precautions until there’s a certain level of herd immunity that has been built in the population,” Swaminathan added.
Fauci recently stated in an interview with Newsweek that there are still doubts about the effectiveness of vaccines in preventing infection.
“We do not know if the vaccines that prevent clinical disease also prevent infection,” said Fauci who urged people to maintain the precautions and protocols implemented so far to avoid contagion.
“That’s the reason I keep saying that even though you get vaccinated, we should not eliminate, at all, public health measures like wearing masks because we don’t know yet what the effect [of the vaccine] is on transmissibility,” Fauci added.
The head of the U.S. government’s working group on the CCP Virus, or COVID-19, said that if he were to become chief medical adviser in a Joe Biden administration, there would be the possibility of implementing a medical passport that would verify a person’s vaccination status in order to gain access to certain communities or businesses.
Fauci, who said he did not believe a national immunization mandate would be imposed, said these issues are still to be discussed, adding that there would most likely be individual institutions that would require a certificate of vaccination.
“For example, influenza and Hepatitis B vaccines are mandated at many hospitals. Here at the NIH [National Institutes of Health], I would not be allowed to see patients if I didn’t get vaccinated every year with flu and get vaccinated once with Hepatitis [B]. I have to get certified every year…if I didn’t, I couldn’t see patients,” said Fauci.
“So in that regard, I would not be surprised, as we get into the full scope of [COVID-19] vaccination, that some companies, some hospitals, some organizations might require [COVID-19] vaccination,” he added, according to the BIzPac Review.
However, vaccination has been increasingly questioned and recent studies reveal that, for example, distrust is growing among U.S. health care workers.
In Ohio, for example, 60% of nursing home workers have refused to receive the COVID-19 vaccine while in California, 50% of frontline health care workers in Riverside County did not want to receive the vaccine.
According to a physician at Houston Memorial Medical Center in Texas reported to NPR in early December, about half of the nurses at the facility decided not to get the vaccine.
During an online meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, a group of medical specialists who advise Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advisors were urged to warn the public about the adverse effects of the CCP virus vaccine.
