Appearing on Fox News with Bret Baier, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky was asked “Are you for mandating a vaccine on a federal level?”
She replied “That’s something that I think the administration is looking into. It’s something that I think we are looking to see approval of from the vaccine.
“Overall, I think in general, I am all for more vaccination. But, I have nothing further to say on that except that we are looking into those policies,” she added.
Walensky later wrote on Twitter “There will be no nationwide mandate. I was referring to mandates by private institutions and portions of the federal government. There will be no federal mandate.”
