FAUCI And as we ░░░░░░░░ do you just follow ░░░░░░░░ let the data guide ░░░░░░░░ policy and let the ░░░░░░░░ guide your recommendations RADDATZ ░░░░░░░░ s talk about later ░░░░░░░░ Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla ░░░░░░░░ said there s a ░░░░░░░░ chance boosters would be ░░░░░░░░ annually Do you think ░░░░░░░░ s a possibility or ░░░░░░░░ you believe it might ░░░░░░░░ even sooner like every ░░░░░░░░ months FAUCI You know ░░░░░░░░ follow the data and ░░░░░░░░ s always it s ░░░░░░░░ easy to predict Martha ░░░░░░░░ how often you would ░░░░░░░░ it We would hope ░░░░░░░░ this is something that ░░░░░░░░ re looking at very ░░░░░░░░ that that third shot ░░░░░░░░ the mRNA not only ░░░░░░░░ you way up but ░░░░░░░░ the durability so that ░░░░░░░░ will not necessarily need ░░░░░░░░ every six months or ░░░░░░░░ year We re hoping ░░░░░░░░ pushes it out more ░░░░░░░░ it doesn t and ░░░░░░░░ data show we do ░░░░░░░░ it more often then ░░░░░░░░ ll do it but ░░░░░░░░ want to make sure ░░░░░░░░ get the population optimally ░░░░░░░░ and you do whatever ░░░░░░░░ need to do to ░░░░░░░░ sure you do that ░░░░░░░░ hope as an immunologist ░░░░░░░░ an infectious disease person ░░░░░░░░ that maturation of the ░░░░░░░░ increasing its strength and ░░░░░░░░ will be followed by ░░░░░░░░ greater durability That s ░░░░░░░░ I m hoping for ░░░░░░░░ it doesn t happen ░░░░░░░░ ll act accordingly RADDATZ ░░░░░░░░ Dr Fauci The Wall ░░░░░░░░ Journal is also reporting ░░░░░░░░ pretty incredible statistic that ░░░░░░░░ from Covid official numbers ░░░░░░░░ twice as high this ░░░░░░░░ as last How do ░░░░░░░░ explain that FAUCI Well ░░░░░░░░ re dealing with a ░░░░░░░░ variant right now which ░░░░░░░░ very very different from ░░░░░░░░ original variants that we ░░░░░░░░ dealing with before Martha ░░░░░░░░ is this is a ░░░░░░░░ that is highly highly ░░░░░░░░ I mean no doubt ░░░░░░░░ that the more people ░░░░░░░░ get infected the more ░░░░░░░░ that are going to ░░░░░░░░ hospitalized the more people ░░░░░░░░ get hospitalized the more ░░░░░░░░ that are going to ░░░░░░░░ This just gets us ░░░░░░░░ to the message that ░░░░░░░░ re talking about What ░░░░░░░░ have this year what ░░░░░░░░ didn t have last ░░░░░░░░ is we now have ░░░░░░░░ that are highly effective ░░░░░░░░ clearly very safe particularly ░░░░░░░░ with the recent data ░░░░░░░░ that we can vaccinate ░░░░░░░░ from 5 to 11 ░░░░░░░░ it s really important ░░░░░░░░ point out if you ░░░░░░░░ the children at that ░░░░░░░░ group and there are ░░░░░░░░ million children within that ░░░░░░░░ category if we start ░░░░░░░░ them now they ll ░░░░░░░░ fully protected by Christmas ░░░░░░░░ would really be something ░░░░░░░░ s very good And ░░░░░░░░ s the reason why ░░░░░░░░ re encouraging parents to ░░░░░░░░ children within that age ░░░░░░░░ vaccinated.”
