Dr Anthony Fauci said on Friday that it was necessary to redefine what it means to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Speaking to CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” the President’s top medical adviser, Joe Biden, said there’s no doubt the optimal vaccination is with a booster dose.

Currently, individuals are considered to have been fully immunized two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose series, such as PfizerBiotechnology vaccine, or two weeks after a dose of vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson Vaccine.

But Fauci said on Friday that regulators were open to revisiting those definitions.

“There is no doubt that the optimal vaccination is a booster shot,” he said.

“Whether the CDC changes that or not, it’s definitely been discussed and is open to discussion. I’m not sure exactly when that will happen. But I think people shouldn’t lose the message that no. no doubt if you want ultimate protection you should buy a booster.”

Vaccination has affected the lives of millions of Americans. Millions of health care workers across the country are required, under Biden’s direction mounted vaccine mission, to be fully immunized against the coronavirus, while some states and cities have imposed their own rules to limit what unvaccinated people can do.

Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA commissioner and CNBC contributor, told “Squawk Box” on Friday that the increase in cases means it could soon become difficult to get booster shots.

“We know omicrons move very quickly… this variant will move much faster in the water than the plains did, so those waiting to get their hands on a booster to get yourself one safeguard against this variation – time is running out for that,” he said.

“Appointments will fill, demand will increase. The best way to protect yourself is to get booster shots.”
