According to him, the coronavirus has seriously interfered with the fight against HIV/AIDS, “pulling off scientific and financial resources, interrupting supply chains and increasing the risk of contracting another deadly virus for people with HIV.”

“To counter this challenges, we must intensify our collaborative research efforts and free supply chains. We must also ensure that people living with HIV in all countries have prompt access to vaccines and drugs for COVID-19, while supplies of HIV drugs are also maintained, ”Fauci said.

According to him, for this, unvaccinated people need to be vaccinated, and vaccinated people need to receive a booster dose of the drug. He recalled that when a person receives an additional dose of the vaccine, the level of protection increases markedly.
