Fauci pushes new word for 'mandates,' admits changing 'fully vaccinated' definition 'certainly on the table'

Reporters have continued to ask Fauci and the White House about the possibility of changing the definition, which currently states a person is fully vaccinated when they have received two doses of a Pfizer or Moderna regimen or a shot of the Johnson & 约翰逊疫苗. In the face of omicron, some have suggested the definition should include a booster shot.

Fauci maintained for weeks that the definition would not change until new data suggested it should, but Friday morning he finally planted his flag in the war of words around the pandemic when he suggested that some terms may – and in one case, should – change.
