Biden, Fauci Discuss Requiring COVID Booster Shots Every 5 Months

New York Post – by Steven Nelson

President Biden on Friday said he and Dr. Anthony Fauci discussed requiring COVID-19 booster shots every five months rather than every eight as previously anticipated.

The shorter timeframe would increase the number of vaccine doses that the US will need to set aside for booster shots — as poorer nations clamor for more US donations.

“The question raised is should it be shorter than eight months? Should it be as little as five months? That’s being discussed. I spoke with Dr. Fauci this morning about that,” Biden said in the Oval Office during a visit from Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Biden said Friday that booster shots for Americans “will start here on Sept. 20 pending approval of the FDA and the CDC committee of outside experts.”

The president did not say what Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, recommended regarding booster shot timing.

Israel began giving booster shots to senior citizens last month — rejecting the World Health Organization’s plea for “a moratorium on boosters” so that the Third World can get vaccines and reduce the possibility of new and more contagious mutations.

Pfizer and BioNTech have requested FDA approval for a booster shot for their two-dose vaccine, which is the most widely used option in the US — saying data shows a third shot improves the body’s ability to fight the virus. Moderna’s similar two-dose vaccine was made with the same technology.

Johnson & Johnson’s one-dose vaccine also works better with an extra shot, the company said this week.

The changing timeframe on booster shots threatens to undermine White House messaging, however, amid continued vaccine hesitancy among certain demographic groups.

Jeff Zients, Biden’s COVID-19 response coordinator, said Tuesday, “We expect the rule will be simple. Get your booster shot eight months after you got your second shot.”

According to CDC data, 73.5 percent of US adults have had at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot and 62.8 percent are fully vaccinated.

Vaccines dramatically lower the risk of serious symptoms, hospitalization and death, but the high rate of vaccination hasn’t stopped a surge in cases of the Delta variant of the virus — with a daily average of more than 156,000 new US COVID-19 cases over the past week, matching the case rate in late January.

  1. It’s apparent that the number of disabled and dead people isn’t high enough, and without knowing when the long term disabilities and deaths will begin, they want to keep jabbing people with this poison while the sheep are scared and compliant.

  2. The amount of people in my small part of the world looking to get medical exemptions is deafening (And appreciated). At this point, I’m thinking whoever wants to keep getting it, have at it. Just don’t include me. Survival of the fittest…they’re probably useless anyway. Except for the senior population- I love them; they’ve lived through so much, experienced so much, and I love to hear first hand accounts of their life experiences.

  3. Maybe we could forego the several single injections, and just have everybody wheel around with their IV bags in tow, a permanent and continuous flow of that life giving aborted human fetal tissue concoction coursing through your once virgin veins.
    We’ll all have to comply with the dress code: open backed hospital gowns, winter, spring, summer or fall, and non-skid slippers in which we skuff around the cold, foodless house.

  4. “Johnson & Johnson’s one-dose vaccine also works better with an extra shot, the company said this week.“

    BAHAHAHAAHHAHAA!!!!! Yea, it’ll also kill you a lot faster. The murders at Johnson and Johnson are infamously number one in that area.

    Try telling me another one, Jew York Post.

  5. ok can someone please explain how the Taliban survived a year and a half without masks , social distancing , Covid PCR tests and mandatory vaccines , and now have managed to recapture Kabul and freely rule Afghanistan in the middle of a so called global pandemic ?

    looks like the only way to get the US Government to leave you alone, is to live in Afghanistan
