A booster injection will almost certainly be required for “full vaccination,” according to Fauci; millions of Americans refuse to be vaccinated because they are afraid of the consequences.
Upon being asked if another dosage would be needed, Fauci said that the decision would be up to the Food and Drug Administration but added, “I would not be at all shocked if the appropriate complete regimen for vaccination will most likely be three doses.”

School districts, companies, and other organizations with vaccine requirements would be significantly impacted if a third dosage were required for “complete vaccination.
“According to Fauci, the findings of a trial conducted on more than 1 million individuals in Israel indicated that they had a “significant beneficial effect” 12 days or more after receiving a Pfizer booster injection during the outbreak of the delta strain.
Following the booster, according to Fauci’s findings, there is a more than tenfold decrease in the relative risk of infection as well as serious illness.
The Biden administration announced that it would begin giving booster injections on Sept. 20 to individuals who had their second dosage at least eight months before.
A J&J booster injection has not been determined at this time, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes it is probable. However, only a limited number of cases have been reported in the United States, with the delta variation accounting for more than 99 percent of all sequenced illnesses.
The vaccination status of millions of Americans is unknown
Although vaccinations have been shown to be safe and beneficial, the stigma associated with genuinely believing in them is so strong in certain areas that millions of Americans are being immunized in secret to escape public scrutiny.
According to a Harris Poll study done exclusively for USA TODAY, about 1 in 6 individuals who have had a COVID-19 vaccination say they are keeping that knowledge a secret from at least some people, and more than 1 in 17 say they aren’t telling anybody. This amounts to upward of 10 million people refusing to disclose such information, given that more than 174 million people in this nation are completely vaccinated.
Many individuals who have been vaccinated conceal their status because they are aware that others in their lives would not approve.
According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states with high COVID-19 vaccination rates are more effective in protecting children from the coronavirus. Children under the age of 12 are not yet eligible for the injections.
Still, vaccination among adults and teenagers helps to limit the spread of the virus in a community, making it less likely that a kid would get the illness.
According to Walensky, the hospitalization rate among children in states with the lowest vaccination coverage was almost four times higher in August compared to those with high vaccine coverage.
According to Walensky, citing second research, the hospitalization rate among unvaccinated teenagers was almost ten times greater in July than among fully vaccinated adolescents. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plans to release both studies on Friday.
