Fauci On Vaccine Mandates For Flying On Airplanes: "I Would Certainly Support That"
Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would support vaccine mandates for people traveling on a plane and other "enclosed spaces."
"Of all the places we go in America, sort of the most controlled where you have to go through a lot of stuff to do it it's getting on a plane. They're also enclosed spaces with circulating air. It does seem like that would be a natural place to have this kind of requirement," MSNBC host Chris Hayes said.
"You know, yes, it would be," Fauci responded. "But as you mentioned right now this is something that is on the table that's being discussed. And as you quoted me correctly I said that I'm not proposing it but if the president decided all other things considered in that decision I would certainly support that."
"But you should know that these types of discussions are ongoing all the time, Chris and they're still on the table. A decision hasn't been made and when -- and if the president makes a decision I certainly would support that for the reasons that you mentioned," Fauci added.
