A redefinition of what it means to be fully vaccinated towards Covid-19 is definitely “on the table,” Dr. Anthony Fauci mentioned Friday.

Speaking to CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” President Joe Biden’s high medical advisor mentioned that there was little question that optimum vaccination was with a booster dose.

Currently, people are thought-about to be fully vaccinated both two weeks after their second dose of a two-dose collection, equivalent to the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, equivalent to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

But Fauci mentioned on Friday that the regulators have been open to reconsidering these definitions.

“There’s no doubt that optimum vaccination is with a booster,” he mentioned.

“Whether or not the CDC is going to change that, it certainly is on the table and open for discussion. I’m not sure exactly when that will happen. But I think people should not lose sight of the message that there’s no doubt if you want to be optimally protected, you should get your booster.”
