Dr. Fauci: It will be ‘open season’ by April for everyone to receive vaccines


Dr. Anthony Fauci tells TODAY that the pace of coronavirus vaccinations will pick up “as we get into March and April” and that by April, it will be “open season” for all groups to receive shots. He says that while the U.K. variant does spread more rapidly, “the vaccines we have seem to do well” against it. Regarding new CDC recommendations on masks, he says “the fit is better if you put a surgical mask on and put a cloth mask over,” and demonstrates. He says “it still would be prudent to wear a mask” after being vaccinated to protect others.
