Dr. Anthony Fauci advised that people require their own family members to show evidence of vaccination before gathering for the holidays.

Fauci explained the benefits of being vaccinated, despite many restrictions still applying to the vaccinated demographic.

"One thing that vaccinated people can feel comfortable with, for example — let's take the holiday setting, you're with your family, you have grandparents and parents and children, when you get vaccinated and you have a vaccinated group and you are in an indoor setting, you can enjoy, as we have traditionally over the years, dinners and gatherings within the home with people who are vaccinated," Fauci said Wednesday during a live interview.

"That's the reason why people should, if they invite people over their home, essentially ask and maybe require that people show evidence that they are vaccinated," Fauci continued.

About 60% of Americans are fully vaccinated, according to Our World in Data.

Fauci recommended that people forgo large family gatherings and announced that for the first time, he would be skipping Christmas with his own family.

“For the first time in more than 30 years, I’m not spending the Christmas holidays with my daughters,” Fauci said during the Milken Institute’s Future of Health Summit, adding that he didn't attend Thanksgiving with his family either.
