Dr. Anthony Fauci has warned that people may still be required to wear masks and continue practicing social distancing even after they've been vaccinated.

Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN anchor Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday that COVID-19 precautions will still be necessary after a vaccine becomes available to Americans.

The leading coronavirus expert insisted that it will be unlikely that life will return to "normal" following mass public vaccinations.

“I would recommend to people to not to abandon all public health measures just because you’ve been vaccinated,” Fauci told Tapper.

“Because even though for the general population it might be 90 to 95 percent effective, you don’t necessarily know for you how effective it is.”

Dr. Fauci added that once he receives a vaccine, he still won’t feel comfortable completely letting down his guard.

“I can feel more relaxed in essentially not having the stringency that we have right now, but I think abandoning it completely would not be a good idea,” Fauci said.

WATCH:

Case numbers for COVID-19 continue to rise in several states across the country, tampering with the hopes of millions of Americans seeking to restore a sense of normality with the upcoming holidays.

Dr. Fauci told Tapper that, even with widespread distribution of a vaccine, the public "can’t abandon fundamental public health measures," specifically social distancing and mask-wearing. 

"You can approach a degree of normality while still doing some fundamental health things that synergize with the vaccine to get us back to normal," Fauci said.

Elsewhere during the interview, Tapper suggested to Fauci that Christmas is "probably not gonna be possible" this year as medical experts warn of COVID-19 spikes caused by widespread indoor holiday gatherings.

Tapper noted that based on Dr, Fauci's recommendations, which are expected to extend into the "the second or third" quarter of 2021, "Christmas is probably not gonna be possible."

WATCH:

Fauci told Yahoo News last month that people will have to make “their individual choice” when it comes to celebrating Thanksgiving and visiting family.

At the time, he said that “hopefully by Christmas” the situation will be different.

“Each individual family needs to make the decision based upon the risk situation in your own family,” he explained.
