Nothing to do with ‘following the science’
In an appearance Sunday Anthony Fauci admitted that vaccine mandates are merely a “mechanism” to coerce more Americans to take shots.
Appearing on ABC Sunday, Fauci noted “A vaccine requirement for a person getting on the plane is just another level of getting people to have a mechanism that would spur them to get vaccinated.”
The comments came as part of a discussion on applying vaccine mandates to air travel.
Far from following any ‘science’, Fauci admitted that “anything that could get people more vaccinated would be welcome.”

In a follow up appearance Monday on CNN, Fauci admitted that vaccine mandates to fly is likely not going to happen, (because there is no science to it).
“Everything that comes up as a possibility we put it on the table and we consider it,” Fauci declared, adding “That does not mean that it is likely to happen. Right now I don’t think people should expect that we are going to have a requirement in domestic flights for people to be vaccinated.”
“It’s on the table, and we consider it, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. I doubt if we are going to see something like that in the reasonably foreseeable future” Fauci added.
“The reason is that with the sheer volume of new cases that we are having and that we expect to continue with Omicron, one of the things we want to be careful of is that we don’t have so many people out,” Dr. Anthony Fauci explains why CDC changed Covid isolation guidelines. pic.twitter.com/g48XwcDdJh— The Situation Room (@CNNSitRoom) December 27, 2021
Meanwhile, not content with cancelling Christmas… again, in another CNN interview, Fauci told Americans not to go to or host any new years parties where the vaccination status of any attendees is unknown.
“When you’re talking about a New Year’s Eve party with 30, 40, 50 people celebrating…stay away from that this year. There will be other years to do that, but not this year,” Fauci said.
Dr. Anthony Fauci says he recommends that people “stay away” from large New Year’s Eve gatherings where they don’t know the vaccination status of guests.
“There will be other years to do that, but not this year,” he says.https://t.co/X6u5qGcrbn pic.twitter.com/5eaEpVfWhd— New Day (@NewDay) December 27, 2021
