Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House's top adviser on COVID-19, said Tuesday that local governments should require teachers to get vaccinated.

Speaking on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Fauci said that the risks posed by the Delta variant are so "serious" that he is now in favor of vaccine mandates.

"I'm going to upset some people on this, but I think we should" have vaccine mandates for teachers, Fauci said. "We are in a critical situation now. We've had 615,000+ deaths and we are in a major surge now as we're going into the fall, into the school season."

"This is very serious business," Fauci continued. "You would wish that people would see why it's so important to get vaccinated. But you're not going to get mandates centrally from the federal government."

Instead of federal mandates, Fauci said there should be local mandates "for schools, for teachers, for universities, for colleges."

"I"m sorry, I mean I know people must like to have their individual freedom and not be told to do something, but I think we're in such a serious situation now, that under certain circumstances, mandates should be done," he said.
