Fauci: In Order to Feel ‘Comfortable,’ Vaccinated People Should ‘Ask and Maybe Require’ Christmas Guests to Provide Proof of Vaccination

NIH director and advisor to the president Dr. Anthony Fauci was at it again this morning in regards to what his opinion is on who and how people can gather for Christmas.

In October, Fauci gave the green light to the vaccinated to enjoy the holidays with their family, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

During an interview, Fauci said that he believes vaccinated people should “ask and maybe require” Christmas guests to provide proof of vaccination in order to feel “comfortable.”

Fauci spoke with Frances Stead Sellers of the Washington Post as part of a virtual “COVID 2022” forum.

The forum discussed “how COVID-19 will impact 2022, from getting children vaccinated and the roll-out of booster campaigns to the efforts for global vaccine equity.”

At one point though, a key part of the remainder of 2021 was brought up by Fauci.

“I’ve heard from so many vaccinated people who feel that maybe there may be some personal rewards for being vaccinated, but they still face all these restrictions and measures,” Sellers told Fauci.

Fauci responded, “Well yes, that is just the reality of the situation.”

“I mean one think that vaccinated people can feel comfortable, let’s take the holiday setting… when you get vaccinated and you have a vaccinated group and you are in an indoor setting, you can enjoy as we have traditionally over the years, dinners and gatherings within the home with people who are vaccinated,” Fauci explained.

Fauci then suggested therefore, “That’s the reason why people should, if they invite people over their home, ask and essentially require that people show evidence that they are vaccinated.”
