J&J Says Covid-19 Vaccine Booster Two Months After First Shot Increases Protection
My provincial government is going to pay each person who has not yet been vaccinated $100 to get the vaccine if they sign up and register before October 14th.
Unless this virus turns really deadly I'm sticking with the first shot I got, I'm not getting any boosters...
It is starting to look like you and I may not have that choice for very much longer.

'This is a monumental failure!' ABC insider slams The View for creating a 'national security risk' after co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro test positive for Covid just SECONDS before greeting Kamala Harris
An ABC insider has accused The View of 'monumental failure' after two of the show's stars were pulled off the air after testing positive for COVID-19 just seconds before they were scheduled to greet Vice President Kamala Harris. Co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were booted from Friday morning's live broadcast after returning the positive results at the eleventh hour. The bombshell news caused chaos on the show's set and forced Harris to delay her interview, which was eventually conducted via video link from another room at ABC's New York studios. 'This is a monumental failure on the part of the showrunner Brian Teta, ABC News' Kim Goodwin and Disney's Peter Rice,' the anonymous insider exclusively told DailyMail.com.
Merck says research shows its COVID-19 pill works against variants
Laboratory studies show that Merck & Co's experimental oral COVID-19 antiviral drug, molnupiravir, is likely to be effective against known variants of the coronavirus, including the dominant, highly transmissible Delta, the company said on Wednesday.
Since molnupiravir does not target the spike protein of the virus - the target of all current COVID-19 vaccines - which defines the differences between the variants, the drug should be equally effective as the virus continues to evolve, said Jay Grobler, head of infectious disease and vaccines at Merck.
Molnupiravir instead targets the viral polymerase, an enzyme needed for the virus to make copies of itself. It is designed to work by introducing errors into the genetic code of the virus. Data shows that the drug is most effective when given early in the course of infection, Merck said.
The U.S. drugmaker tested its antiviral against nasal swab samples taken from participants in early trials of the drug. Delta was not in wide circulation at the time of those trials, but molnupiravir was tested against lab samples of the variant behind the latest surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths.
Merck said earlier this year that a small, mid-stage trial found that after five days of molnupiravir treatment, none of the patients taking various doses of the drug tested positive for infectious virus, while 24% of placebo patients did have detectable levels.
Merck is currently conducting two Phase III trials of the antiviral it is developing with Ridgeback Biotherapeutics - one for treatment of COVID-19 and another as a preventive.
Merck anticipates that the Phase III treatment study will finish in early November, Grobler said. The trial enrolled nonhospitalized COVID-19 patients who have had symptoms for no more than five days and are at risk for severe disease. The latest analysis was presented during IDWeek, the annual meeting of infectious disease organizations, including the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Shares of Merck were up 2.3% at $75.04 on Wednesday afternoon on the New York Stock Exchange.
Fauci is a big part of the problem and reason of hesitancy of vaccination...His self image of self importance refuses to see the truth...
Fauci pressed if he should 'step aside' as an 'impediment to public health': 'People won't listen to you'
'A significant part of America now have lost confidence in you,' Hugh Hewitt told Fauci
Dr. Anthony Fauci faced a tough grilling over whether or not he should step aside as his critics view him as a deterrent in the Biden administration's ongoing effort to vaccinate Americans.
During Wednesday's appearance on Hugh Hewitt's radio show, Fauci was confronted by a list of COVID-era "controversies," including the pause of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the ivermectin debate, the avoidance of natural immunity as well as his "noble lie" discouraging Americans from wearing masks in the early months of the pandemic to prevent an N95 shortage.
"I have lost confidence in the CDC and the FDA and I actually believe a lot of Americans, a significant part of America now have lost confidence in you, Dr. Fauci," Hewitt began. "Is there a point where you will say, 'I do more harm than good because people don't listen to me anymore,' and step aside?"
"No. Absolutely, unequivocally no, Hugh. Sorry," Fauci reacted. "When you have an evolving situation and data are rapidly evolving in something that is unprecedented and unknown, you have to evolve with it and look at the data as it exists now and make to the best of your ability a decision, a recommendation, all the kinds of things that go into the evolution."
Following Fauci's meandering answer, Hewitt persisted with his intense line of questioning by first acknowledging he "understands" why Fauci lied about the masks but also calling it "bad policy."
"It's just a fact that Tony Fauci, not the guy I'm talking with but Tony Fauci- the person in people's minds, is now an impediment to public health because people won't listen to you," Hewitt said. "They actively reject what Tony Fauci says for reasons which are complicated… but can you accept that if that's just the fact, you ought to respond to it and say ‘Mr. President, I think my time is up as a successful and effective spokesperson?’"
"You know, with all due respect… I just completely disagree with that premise because there are an awful lot of people who do listen, who do the right thing from a public health standpoint," Fauci responded. "So because there are a lot of people who have ideas of conspiracies and changing minds and flip-flopping, that's not a reason to step down. Not at all."
The NIAID director recalled his adversarial relationship with activists 40 years ago during the AIDS epidemic how he "brought them into the dialogue" to support his ongoing presence in the Biden administration.
"So the idea that people right now are not listening to what I'm saying, what I'm saying is the truth," Fauci said.
"I actually agree," Hewitt interjected. "I got the booster, I'm Mr. Vaccine, I get the same kind of heat that you do, and what I'm saying though is there comes a point where it is simply a matter of fact that Tony Fauci in the era of social media is different than Tony Fauci of the beginning of HIV. And if a new face for the program developed, we would see an increase in vaccines and an increase in booster use. So if that data is presented to you that more people would get vaccinated if you left the scene, would you leave the scene?"
Fauci flatly rejected Hewitt's "completely false narrative" that people aren't getting vaccinated because of him.
"Are you kidding me, Hugh?" Fauci chuckled.
"I'm trying to explain to you the truth," Hewitt shot back. "I got vaccinated because of you, but there is a large segment of the American people that doesn't trust you now and that can't be undone. So I want you to be able to speak to them. I know your heart, I know your public service, but if you're an obstacle to getting vaccination rates up, should you step aside?"
Fauci insisted he's "not an obstacle to getting vaccination rates up," but Hewitt continued to press him, asking if he was presented "polling" would he reconsider.
"So people are saying, 'I'm not getting the vaccine because Dr. Fauci is in the government.' Are you kidding me?" Fauci mocked.
"No actually, I believe that's the truth, doctor," Hewitt told Fauci before warning him he may have a "blindside" towards how he's understood by the "center-right."
"You're not hearing me, doctor. You're not hearing me. I'm saying people see you coming on and they turn off the channel because they don't like you whereas if a new face arrives, a new younger face… if a new person shows up, I think we're more effective."
Fauci repeatedly dismissed Hewitt's inquires, pointing to "new, young" faces like CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walinsky and U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy "saying the exact same thing" as he is and people are still not getting vaccinated.
Joe Rogan Thinks Biden Faked His COVID-19 Booster Shot on Live TV
Joe Rogan’s streak of terrible COVID-19 takes continued this week when he baselessly suggested the White House faked President Joe Biden’s booster shot on live TV out of fear that he could have dropped dead in the moment.
After Biden took questions from reporters while he received his third dose of the Pfizer jab earlier this week, Rogan used his massively popular Spotify podcast to wonder aloud if it was a “real booster.”
When his guest, former CIA officer Mike Baker agreed, suggesting that it was merely “performance art,” Rogan dug deeper into his latest conspiracy theory.
“I don’t think they would take the chance,” the host said. “I think if they were going to give him a booster shot, the last thing they would do is give it to him live on television. What if he dies? What if he blacks out? What if he gets it and faints? Because people have had very bad reactions, like in the moment, for whatever reason.”
Earlier this year, the CDC reported 21 cases of anaphylaxis out of 1,893,360 first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
“Unless Kamala Harris talked him into it,” Rogan later joked—the implication being that she was trying to kill him so she could take over the job. “She’s like, go ahead, take it. Give him a double!”
While Rogan has repeatedly expressed skepticism around the COVID-19 vaccine and has not said whether or not he has received the shot himself, he confirmed that he took ivermectin—an anti-parasitic medication most commonly used for horse deworming—when he tested positive last month.
Well... at least he wont have worms... hehehehe...
