Fauci: Likely everyone will need booster jab shot

United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci remarked on Thursday that the entire population will likely need to receive the so-called "booster" shot of a vaccine against COVID-19 in the future.

"We're already starting to see indications in some sectors about a diminution over time, that's durability," he told CBS while stressing that "we don’t feel we need to give boosters right now."

Earlier this month, Fauci confirmed the government is working on approving a third dose for those deemed riskier parts of the population.
