CNN’s New Day.
Host John Berman: “…What’s the science behind not saying it’s safe for people who have been vaccinated – received two doses, to travel?”
Dr Tony Fauci: “You know that’s a very good question, John, and the CDC [The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is carefully heading in that direction. You know when [CDC director] Dr Walensky made the announcement a day or two ago about the fact that when you have a couple of people, two or more people in a family setting, both of whom are vaccinated. Even if it’s someone from another…a friend, it doesn’t have to be a member of the family. That was the first in a multi-step process that they are going to be rolling out.
“They are being careful, understandably, they want to get the science, they want to get data and then when you don’t have the data and you don’t have the actual evidence, then you’ve got to make a judgment call. And I think that’s what you’re going to be seeing in the next weeks. You’re going to see little by little, more and more guidelines getting people to be more and more flexible.
“The first installation of this is what can vaccinated people do in the home setting? Obviously, the next one is going to be what you’re asking. What about travel? What about going out? … That’s all imminently going to be coming out”
Danish health officials said they have temporarily halted the use of AstraZeneca's Covid-19 vaccine, as they and other European regulators investigate reports of severe blood clots in people who’ve received doses https://t.co/NzAO8s7tI8
