With slowing vaccination rates across the country, the US will need to shift its strategy toward local accessibility to get out of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci said.

(CNN)With slowing vaccination rates across the country, the US will need to shift its strategy toward local accessibility to get out of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci said.

"I think we're going to be able to do it," Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a top Biden adviser, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, referring to increasing the number of people vaccinated.

When the FDA does authorize a vaccine for them, Fauci said he hopes children and teens won't hesitate.

Adding millions more people to the vaccinated population will make a big difference in terms of building up population immunity, Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Health, told CNN.

Just over 50% of the state has had at least one dose of the vaccine, and over 3. 5 million have been fully vaccinated, the Department of Health said in a release Tuesday.
