Fauci Urges COVID Boosters During Last WH Briefing

(Washington, DC) — White House Chief Medical Adviser Anthony Fauci is urging Americans to get their COVID-19 boosters. He did so in likely his last briefing on the pandemic. Fauci earlier this year announced he’ll step down in December from his roles running the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and advising the White House. Speaking to reporters, Fauci said the data overwhelmingly shows COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, noting that hundreds of millions of doses have been distributed in the U.S. He called on Americans to make sure they get their COVID-19 booster shots as the winter months approach. Fauci has advised seven U.S. presidents and served during the HIV-Aids epidemic, West Nile virus and Ebola threats.
