‘Get vaccinated, and you can enjoy the holidays very easily. And if you’re not, please be careful,’ Fauci said on Sunday.

Dana Bash
: “That’s what I’m going to do with my family.” However, if you’re traveling to see family or don’t know if everyone at the gathering is fully vaccinated, proceed with caution as you would in any other situation.
“Get tested if you need to get tested when you’re getting together, but that’s not a substitute for getting vaccinated. Get yourself vaccinated and you can continue to enjoy interactions with your family and others.”
Fauci noted during this
State of the Union
interview that kids ages five to 11 years are now able to be vaccinated and should have the option to be “fully vaccinated by the time we get to the Christmas holidays.” Adding to that good news is the CDC opening up booster shots for all adults.

“CDC continues to encourage the 47 million adults who are not yet vaccinated to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves, their families, loved ones and communities,”
the organization said
. “We also strongly encourage those who were already eligible ­– older populations and individuals with underlying medical conditions ­– to get boosted before the holidays.”
However, the nation’s top infectious disease expert also noted if you are traveling or are unaware of the vaccination status of the people around you, then you should wear a mask in those situations.
