During a White House press briefing on Thursday, Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed that he believes a third shot of the vaccine will be required to enjoy the “privileges of the freedoms” that come with being fully vaccinated.
Fauci was asked during the press conference if the US would follow Israel’s lead and require a third dose of the vaccine to be deemed completely vaccinated.

“You mentioned the studies in Israel. We’ve seen the Israeli government require people to get a third dose of the vaccine to be considered fully vaccinated. They’re — do you expect a similar change the United States that — you know, that if the third dose after that eight-month waiting period will be required to be, quote, unquote, ‘considered fully vaccinated’ and enjoy the privileges of the freedoms that that provides?” – Zeke Miller, Associated Press
“The determination whether something is now — constitute ‘fully vaccinated,’ I will leave that up to the FDA when they get the data on the three doses to make that determination — and then, ultimately, a recommendation from the ACIP to the CDC so that it’s recommended.”
“But I must say from my own experience as an immunologist, I would not at all be surprised that the adequate, full regimen for vaccination will likely be three doses. And the reason I say that is that it is very clear, when you give a prime and maybe a second shot as a boost — but give the immune system enough chance to mature, in both affinity maturation and maturation of the B cell repertoire, it is entirely understandable why the results that I’ve just reported from the Israeli boosters are so dramatic.” – DR. Anthony Fauci
While Fauci feels that a third dose of the vaccine will be required to be declared fully immunized, he has emphasized that he will defer to the FDA’s decision.
“And we all hope — and I believe we have good reason to believe — that that only will not be a strong response, but that it will actually be durable. And if it is durable, then you’re going to have — very likely — a three-dose regimen being the routine regimen. But we’ll just have to wait to make sure that that’s the case when the data get presented to the FDA.” – Dr. Anthony Fauci
As a result, Americans are considering whether they will need three doses of the vaccine to be deemed completely vaccinated. At the same time, there are still a lot of unknowns regarding the vaccination and its potential negative effects. How long after the third dose is suggested before Americans are told they require a fourth?
