The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee held a hearing on efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Witnesses included Dr. Anthony Fauci and CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky. Dr. Fauci said the Biden administration’s aim to have 70 percent of adult Americans vaccinated with at least one shot was “an attainable goal” and that if the U.S. continued its rate of vaccinations, it would have “so few infections in this country, we will begin to return to a normality that all of us desire so much.” Dr. Walensky testified that while she was encouraged by the decreased rate of COVID-19 infections, she encouraged Americans to “remain vigilant.” The witnesses, who also included HHS COVID-19 Response Chief Dr. David Kessler and FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research Director Peter Marks, answered a variety of questions regarding updating the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines, vaccinating children, the potential need for booster shots, and worldwide vaccination efforts. close
