Fauci speaks during a press briefing at the White House in Washington

Mask up. Social distance. Get your vaccines and booster shots. It doesn’t matter because omicron is going to find you, said Doctor Anthony Fauci this week.

“Omicron, with its extraordinary, unprecedented degree of efficiency of transmissibility, will, ultimately, find just about everybody,” Fauci said.

The good news is, the virus is much weaker than its relative, delta and Fauci says those who are vaccinated and boosted stand to fair better than those who are unvaccinated. Fauci also warned that even fully boosted Americans still face a more serious risk with omicron, but that risk is mitigated by the efficacy of the vaccines.
