Though, this decision might change in just a matter of hours, here’s what he said.

Fauci said back in September that he thinks three doses Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna’s mRNA vaccines will likely be the primary series. He made his remarks about new terminology in response to whether the U.S. will start to offer fourth doses the way Israel has.
But as we enter 2022 and have been bombed with new variants, Americans ask – what does fully vaxxed actually mean?
Most recently it meant two shots of a Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, or just one from Johnson & Johnson. With the arrival of Omicron, a third shot, a “booster” was required to reach fully vaccinated, but now there is talk of a fourth shot possibly being necessary some time down the road.
“We need to find out what the durability of protection of the third shot is before we start thinking about the fourth shot,” he said back in September.
On Tuesday, Fauci finally gave his definition when asked what “fully vaccinated” means:
“We’re using the terminology now ‘keeping your vaccinations up to date,’ rather than what ‘fully vaccinated’ means,” Fauci said during a National Institutes of Health lecture Tuesday, according to Bloomberg News. “Right now, optimal protection is with a third shot of an mRNA or a second shot of a J&J.”
