Everybody line up for the Triple McJab Booster!
For everyone who rushed to get fully vaccinated from COVID-19, time is running out on that “fully vaccinated” status.
8 months after those first two doses, you’ll need a third dose to claim yourself “fully vaccinated.”
But this isn’t a surprise for critical thinkers.
It was easy to predict this reality.
Advocates of COVID-19 Vaccine Passports must understand that their passports will soon become invalid without that booster.
They get lumped back in with those dirty unvaccinated people who believe in medical freedom.
The never-ending cycle of booster shots won’t end until enough people say no.
Here’s the latest:

The Biden administration plans to begin administering COVID-19 booster shots to Americans as early as mid or late September, pending authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a source familiar with the discussions told Reuters late on Monday.
Health officials in U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration gathered round the view that most people should get a booster shot eight months after they completed their initial vaccination, the source said.
According to the New York Times, which earlier reported the development, officials are planning to announce the administration’s decision as early as this week, with the first boosters likely to go to nursing home residents and health care workers, followed by other older people.
Last week, U.S regulators authorized a third dose of COVID-19 vaccines by Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) and its German partner BioNTech SE (22UAy.DE) and Moderna Inc (MRNA.O) for people with compromised immune systems who are likely to have weaker protection from the two-dose regimens.
The administration’s goal is to let those who received the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines know that they will need additional protection against the Delta variant of the coronavirus, NYT said.
NBC News also reported:
The guidance, which would apply only to the two-shot Pfizer and Moderna regimens, could go into effect as early as mid-September, the sources said.
The recommendation is expected as the delta variant of the coronavirus surges across swaths of the U.S. and as federal health officials are considering whether elderly Americans should get booster shots this fall.
The Food and Drug Administration last week amended its emergency use authorizations for the Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccines Thursday to allow some people with compromised immune systems to get third doses. The change was specific to patients who have been unable to mount adequate immune responses against the virus, even after having been fully vaccinated.
Among the first to receive the third doses could be health care workers, nursing home residents and other older Americans, who were some of the first people to be vaccinated once the shots were authorized for emergency use in December.
Since then, more than 198 million people have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with more than 168 million having been fully vaccinated. Still, the country is experiencing a fourth surge of virus cases due to the more transmissible delta variant, which is spreading aggressively through unvaccinated communities and is responsible for an increasing number of so-called breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated people.
