Fauci: Fourth shot may be needed as vaccine booster fades after four months


Booster shots for Covid-19 are losing their potency after about four months, according to the Centers for Disease Control, in a report released Friday.

“There may be the need for yet again another boost — in this case, a fourth-dose boost for an individual receiving the mRNA — that could be based on age, as well as underlying conditions,” said Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the Biden Administration Covid expert, speaking to the media. “So, I don’t think you’re going to be hearing, if you do, any kind of recommendations that would be across the board for everyone.  It very likely will take into account what subset of people have a diminished, or not, protection against the important parameters such as hospitalization.”

Based on the latest CDC data, the agency estimates over 66 percent  of all eligible adults, and over 80 percent of all eligible seniors, who are considered at greatest risk for serious effects of Covid, have received a booster shot. Those shots have warded off serious illness, hospitalization, and death, but the protection fades more quickly than Americans would expect of a normal vaccine.

Research from Israel and Britain indicates that boosters decline in efficacy after a few months, the White House said on Friday.

The agency is not yet recommending a fourth shot, but based on its previous actions, that recommendation could come within a few weeks, starting with the elderly.

When asked about the CDC’s universal masking recommendation for schools and whether it’s time to change that recommendation, the CDC’s Director Rochelle Walensky dodged the question entirely: “So we certainly understand the need and desire to be flexible, and we want to ensure the public health guidance that we’re providing meets the moment that we’re in. As we’ve discussed and as you noted, cases and hospitalizations are falling.  This is, of course, encouraging.  And that leads us, of course, to have us look at all of our guidance based on the latest data and the science and what we know about the virus.  We also look, of course, as Jeff mentioned, to our hospitalizations, looking at the hospitals as a barometer of how they’re doing locally so those decisions can be made at the local level. And, of course, we at CDC will keep the public informed about our guidance, and we will clearly communicate those recommendations to the public if and when they are updated.”

No reporter credentialed to be at the briefing asked the White House about adverse reactions or complications that have arisen for some Americans receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.

  1. Time to stop listening to these criminals that have committed crimes against humanity. Fourth booster shot is more than likely the kill shot! They need to explain why there is a 40% mortality rate in the U.S. and it isn’t from COVID. All mandates, lockdowns and masks wearing needs to end now! You don’t quarantine the healthy! This is unconstitutional house arrest!

  2. More and more like the Rocky sequels each month…CDC has misnamed the vaccines..shoulda called them the ‘Everready Jabs’ because they just keep going, and going, and going… ?

  3. How many boosters can your body and immune system handle before the adverse effects start to kick in? I believe in free choice but seriously consider the implications. If you keep taking these boosters you’re essentially a two legged lab rat.

    • Largest human trial in history–by far. And of course, they want every single one vaxxed. That way there is no control group…

  4. For those out there that are averse to utilizing their God given critical thinking skills, and reliant upon government dysfunctionaries to dictate what they should do next from their television, radio or newspaper, it would be wise to anticipate the latency period between shots to DECREASE, as your immune system is destroyed, IN ITS ENTIRETY. If this information warfare with dictates from narrative control continues, and as illogical as it seems, it appears that it will, the frequency with which the boosters are required will increase until they are entirely unnecessary. But don’t worry, as far as I know, they don’t put people into caskets with masks on them, so one day you will once again be free. Go ahead, just try to comply your way out of this…

  5. lol
    Masks, jabs & boosters.
    What may have began as understandable and innocent ignorance of the populace, moving in time through willful ignorance, has become at this point, two years later, simple stupidity. Be skeptical of govt, research for yourself, look elsewhere than State Media for your news and information, open your eyes to what is truly happening.

  6. Eventually, folks are going to figure out that Dr. Fauci needs to be sent into retirement (or worse). I have read a lot of stuff on the origins of the Covid 19 virus. One thing that stands out is that Dr. Fauci knew, from the first breath of this pandemic, that the virus may have originated in a Wuhan laboratory. Yet he never mentioned this possibility or his long-standing support for dangerous gain-of-function research. In fact, Dr. Fauci, along with Dr. Collins at NIH organized efforts to suppress discussion of a laboratory origin. Few that I have seen or heard about in my lifetime have done a worse job of serving the public. To the contrary, Dr. Fauci has done enormous damage to humanity. If Dr. Fauci says something, it should be given no weight at all.

  7. “Those shots have warded off serious illness, hospitalization, and death…” From covid–maybe. But, what about a trashed immune systems and those effects? Which maybe is why they are seeing aggressive cancers, with cases climbing. A true vaccine confers long-lasting immunity. So, they change the definition on what is a vaccine. Although, if you notice: they are now saying these excess early deaths are because long-covid is happening. I call BS: it is long-‘vaccine’ that is happening… Just another one of their mis-directions, aka:lies…

    • “Those shots have warded off serious illness, hospitalization, and death…”
      I am not so sure they even did anything for COVID.
      Seriously, before the “vaccines” the odds of hospitalization was less than 2%. (Less than 2% of those testing positive were hospitalized), and the risk of death even lower. Now, the vaccines are protecting us, and the risks are not much different. Any reduction in hospitalizations and deaths are just as likely due to… normal pandemic progress. Look at any pandemic in the last 100 years. First several months, the most vulnerable get sick and die, then that percentage drops off until the virus goes endemic. There is not much evidence proving the vaccine is responsible and this is not just normal pandemic progress.

  8. The third shot sure didn’t help my husband as he is in the middle of Covid right now and it is every bit as miserable as what his unvaccinated friend had whom my husband caught it from.

    • We pray to Yahweh your husband heals from this affliction. Was he not prepared with Ivermectin? A doctor in Florida prescribes via virtual interview with prescription from FL pharmacy.

  9. Are any of the Covid “vaccine” junkies sick of being a cash cow for Big Pharma yet? If you don’t wake up soon this is only going to get much worse!

  10. I had 2 doses of Moderna, 1 week after the second dose I awakened at 2 am with what felt like a chain around my chest. Saw my Cardiologist and told him I was not going to have the booster, (my choice my body only works for those who believe in abortion) I have received a card telling me they have reserved a shot for me from the State of Alaska and a letter from Medicare telling me to get my booster. So big brother is following me. My head spins reading all the information. In that there is so much out there on heart inflammation, I am not going to have the booster. Now Dr Fauci (Who is the highest paid government official, plus he lists his net worth from 2-10 million)_ is going to tell us we have to have more boosters. More money in his pockets. We need to stop this and get on with our lives.
