National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases leader Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that Americans will “just have to deal with” more COVID-19 booster shots if they are considered necessary in the future.
Fauci made the statement during an interview on Sunday with “ABC This Week” when he was asked whether future booster shots would be needed.
“If it becomes necessary to get yet another boost, then we’ll just have to deal with it when that occurs,” Fauci said.
“I’m hoping from an immunological standpoint that that third shot of an mRNA and the second shot of a J&J will give a much greater durability of protection than just the six months or so that we’re seeing right now,” he added.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted in response, “Translation: we will soon require more booster shots.“
She’s likely right. Remember when it was two weeks to stop the spread? That was March 2020. Nearly two years later, we’re facing growing vaccine mandates, controversial vaccines for children, ongoing masking on planes and across some entire states, booster shots and more.
Pfizer’s CEO warned last week that he expects a fourth shot will soon be needed, referring to a booster shot beyond the current booster shot. Might as well sign up for the monthly subscription!
By definition, isn’t a vaccine supposed to be designed to keep someone from catching an illness? If it doesn’t, is it really a vaccine? The current vaccine plan is starting to sound more like a twice yearly flu shot, something we would not call a vaccine because we take it every year.
In addition to the regulations themselves, many people are angry about two other areas—constant change and vaccine mandates. When Fauci changes the rules every time he speaks, his trust level continues to drop to the point that few consider anything he says as true. Most Americans are long past the point of looking to the doctor for advice.
Second, while vaccines might be a big help, mandates are a big invasion of privacy. If more than 50 percent of adults, and more than 70 percent in some states, have already taken the vaccine, why the push for mandates? It’s not only unhelpful, it’s unconstitutional.
That’s why at least some lawmakers are opposing Biden’s government overreach. The Senate passed one ban, but even their work is unlikely to make it through the Democrat-controlled House and if it did, Biden would veto it.
We’re going to need a monstrous red wave in November 2022 to help turn the flow of expanded government powers and return to a more limited form of government like our founding fathers intended. We need less intervention, not more. It’s time for giving power to the people, not the lawmakers in Washington.
Instead of following the science, it’s time we followed the Constitution. Americans are all for good health, but only when we’re given freedom as well.
