Two leading US officials say fully vaccinated Americans may get more guidance in just a matter of days on what they can safely do.
Outdoor activities carry a much lower Covid-19 risk, he said, and for Americans who are fully vaccinated, that risk level drops even further.
Andy Slavitt, White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, also told CNN on Sunday he expected more guidance for fully vaccinated Americans to be released in the coming days.
But even before we hit those percentages, Fauci said that as more people get vaccinated, the country will reach a point where Covid-19 cases will begin going down dramatically.
"Whenever you have a two-dose vaccine, you're going to see people who for one reason or other -- convenience, forgetting, a number of other things -- just don't show up for the second vaccine," he said.
And that phenomenon is not specific to the Covid-19 vaccine, he said, but something that experts tend to see with other two-dose vaccinations.
US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy told MSNBC people may be missing their second shot because they have no way of getting to the vaccine or may not know they need the second dose.
