Fauci: Biden Admin ‘Going to Need Local Mandates’ on COVID-19 Vaccines

Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the White House COVID-19 advisors, on Tuesday shifted the goalposts on herd immunity and said that he wants to see as many as 90 percent of American adults vaccinated against the virus in the near future. About 70 percent of U.S. adults have received at least one shot, according to federal data. But Fauci suggested that when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) grants its final approval to COVID-19 vaccines, there will be more pressure to get people vaccinated. Speaking during a news conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Fauci said that he would “settle for 70 percent or 80 percent, but I’d love to see 90 percent,” describing the likely FDA approval as a “game-changer.” Currently, the COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed and administered under the agency’s emergency use authorization. Later in the news conference, Fauci said that the Biden administration will need to rely on vaccine mandates at the local level. “To get to the 93 million unvaccinated people,” he said, “we are going to need local mandates.” Fauci said that some “enterprises” are going to “[feel] much more confident in local mandates for the vaccines.” When the FDA authorization is handed down, he said, “You’re going to see more universities … places of businesses, once they get the cover of the mandate … you’ll start seeing more vaccines. Because if you get the majority of the people vaccinated, we wouldn’t be having this conversation now.” Over the past week or so, the administration has ramped up its rhetoric around vaccines, including a mandate that federal workers either get the shot or be tested regularly for COVID-19. Disney, Facebook, Google, and Walmart’s corporate office also said that employees need to receive them. New York City, meanwhile, became the first city in the United States to announce a vaccine passport-type system for restaurants, gyms, and theaters. Starting in mid-September, those businesses will have to require that customers show whether they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19 by either using their Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) card or a New York state or New York City app on their phones to show their vaccination status. Vaccine mandates or passports have been criticized by civil liberties groups and some conservatives as a potential invasion of privacy, and may potentially create a segregated society of vaccinated and unvaccinated people. Various officials and corporate executives said the vaccine requirements are due to the Delta COVID-19 variant, which researchers say is fast spreading.

Former Obama Official Demands ‘a No-Fly List for Unvaccinated Adults’ Former Assistant Secretary for Homeland Security under President Obama Juliette Kayyem called Tuesday for the Biden administration to restrict the unvaccinated from flying by placing them on a no-fly list. Kayyem claimed in the Atlantic that “a no-fly list for unvaccinated adults is an obvious step that the federal government should take” due to TSA PreCheck, which “divide[s] passengers into categories according to how much of a threat the government thinks they pose.” At the time of publication, the headline for the piece echoed this line, stating bluntly: “Unvaccinated People Belong on the No-Fly List.” The headline has since been changed to a more ambiguous sentence: “Unvaccinated People Need to Bear the Burden.” “If you submit to heightened scrutiny in advance,” Kayyem said, “TSA PreCheck lets you go through security without taking off your shoes; a no-fly list keeps certain people off the plane entirely.” The author continues: Flying is not a right, and the case for restricting it to vaccinated people is straightforward: The federal government is the sole entity that can regulate the terms and conditions of airline safety. And although air-filtration systems and mask requirements make transmission of the coronavirus unlikely during any given passenger flight, infected people can spread it when they leave the airport and take off their mask. The whole point of international-travel bans is to curb infections in the destination country; to protect itself, the United States still has many such restrictions in place. Beyond limiting the virus’s flow from hot spots to the rest of the country, allowing only vaccinated people on domestic flights will change minds, too. Kayyem also suggests the “holdouts” with “a variety of motivations” include 41 percent of the unvaccinated that said “a prohibition on airline travel would get them closer to their shots.” Kayyem champions shaming the unvaccinated, who should “face scorn among their peer group” and “may even be happy to have an excuse to protect themselves,” along with celebrating Broadway, Disney, and Walmart for forcing the unvaccinated to give up “certain societal benefits” to practice their their individuality and freedom of choice. “Amid a global health crisis,” Kayyem continues, “people who defy public-health guidance are not, and do not deserve to be, a protected class.” The former assistant secretary’s diktats align with President Joe Biden’s shaming and punishing of those who refuse to become vaccinated. For instance, Biden told churchgoers in April they were being ungodly if they did not receive a vaccine. “I think this is the Godly thing to do. Protect your brother and sister,” he stated. “That’s what this is about. It’s about protecting people.” On July 2, Biden indicated black Tuskegee airmen “were almost like guinea pigs,” when answering a question about vaccine hesitancy in the black community: You know, you go back just to — even World War II, African-Americans were used as experimental — they were almost like guinea pigs in terms of — they were — anyway, it — and your mom and dad remember that and your grandparents remember that.
