On Sunday, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” to discuss vaccinations, reopening schools, and other topics with host Dana Bash. When Bash asked Fauci about guidelines for people who have received vaccinations, the doctor did not provide specific answers.
Bash said that there has been confusion as to how someone’s lifestyle is able to change once they receive the vaccine. The host used her family as an example, saying that her parents have been given both doses of the vaccine and are fully vaccinated. She asked, “Does that mean it’s okay for them to spend time with their grandchildren, who obviously have not been vaccinated? What’s your recommendation?”
Dr. Fauci responded, saying he was not going to make a recommendation at this time, but that “there will be recommendations coming out. I don’t want to be making a recommendation now on public TV,” he
