She referred to as out the physician for not giving concrete recommendation to vaccinated grandparents about visiting their unvaccinated grandchildren.

“There will likely be suggestions popping out. I don’t need to be making a advice now on public TV,” Fauci mentioned. “I might need to sit down with the group [and] check out that.”

The quote was on model for Fauci, who’s typically reluctant to take a position till he has sound proof and information to again up his claims.
