The COVID vaccines are currently being distributed under emergency use authorization now. But the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could give full approval for the vaccines in the near future. Church Militant's David Nussman explains how this could lead to a worst-case scenario for those who don't want to get vaccinated.
Dr. Anthony Fauci: "And I believe that some people on their own, once it gets approved as a full approval, will go ahead and get vaccinated, but for those who do not want, I believe mandates at the local level need to be done."
If the FDA gives full approval to the COVID shots, it will lead to more institutions requiring vaccination — this, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday.
Fauci: "I hope it's within the month of August. If that's the case, you're going to see the empowerment of local enterprises giving mandates."
Some employers are already requiring vaccination.
United Airlines is telling U.S.-based workers to get COVID shots, either within five weeks of FDA approval or by Oct. 25, whichever comes first.
Google says employees who want to return to working in-person need the jab.
Microsoft announced it will require vax papers from employees, vendors and guests at the office.
Catholic colleges are following suit. For example, at Mount St. Mary's University in Maryland there's a vax mandate for undergrads and for men studying for the priesthood at Mount St. Mary's Seminary.
Meanwhile, modernist prelates like Cdl. Blase Cupich are rabidly promoting the COVID shots.
Cupich: "I got my COVID-19 vaccination, and you should too."
Since all the bishops went along with shutting down public Mass last year, it's possible some will now go along with vax requirements.
