Fauci Praises Israel's Vaccine Drive


The top White House adviser on the coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci, praised Israel’s vaccination drive as a “model for the rest of the world.

In a Times of Israel interview, Fauci said, “I use Israel as an example of what can happen when you effectively vaccinate a substantial proportion of the people.”

Fauci noted that Israel is a small country, which gives it an advantage, “But you’re very well organized and your ability to get the vaccine into the arms of people … is very admirable.”

However, Fauci said Israel will have to remain vigilant in the face of the virus.

“I think it’s going to be a tremendous advantage to get those people vaccinated and then you’ll be in good shape,” he said. “But unless the entire world essentially has access to and gets vaccinated, there’s always the threat that a variant is going to come in and evade the protection of the vaccine.”

“I don’t have a problem with declaring victory, so long as you keep your army intact,” he added.
