(Reuters) - The administration of U.S. President Joe Biden is developing a plan to start offering coronavirus booster shots to some Americans as early as this fall, the New York Times reported on Saturday, citing people familiar with the effort.

The first boosters are likely to go to nursing home residents and health care workers, followed by other older people who were near the front of the line when vaccinations began late last year, the newspaper reported.

Officials envision giving people the same vaccine they originally received. They have discussed starting the effort in October but have not settled on a timetable, the report added.

To prove the vaccine with booster do work, I'd like to see our dear President Biden, Vice-President Harris, and also Speaker Pelosi, take the third dose of vaccine and then walk into any Covid 19 ward in the country full of ICU near-death patients without any masks on.  If what the Biden administration has told us citizens all along is true, easy job, right?

Neither the Biden Administration nor any public health official has ever said that if you're vaccinated you are 100% immune. Being vaccinated simply reduces your chances of getting infected or infecting others, and it greatly reduces the chance of needing hospitalization if you do get sick. So there is a definite benefit to both the individual and society in general, the more people get vaccinated.

Adrian White  Geez, you failed math in school or something.  We have almost 60% of our citizens fully vaccinated and yet, the number of new cases keep rising everyday.  Even worse than the time when nobody was vaccinated.  How could that be?  Stop being a sheep, and keep drinking Biden's Cool Aid.  All those news about people getting the vaccine and dying because of side effects, also people fully vaccinated and still dying from the virus in the ICU were never reported.  If you think only the unvaccinated will get the worse of the virus, don't worry, at this rate, all those unvaccinated will drop dead soon and there leaves you people fully vaccinated and live on.

Sure, give people more of the same not too efficient stuff that does not prevent the virus from spreading. It will sure work better this time, right?... The same with currency creation, put more into circulation, despite the fact that the higher amount does not increase its velocity. Both are equally not good decisions in the long run.
