WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Top U.S. infectious disease official Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that Americans who are immune compromised may end up needing COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.

"Those who are transplant patients, cancer chemotherapy, auto-immune diseases, that are on immunosuppressant regimens, those are the kind of individuals that if there's going to be a third booster, which might likely happen, would be among first the vulnerable," Fauci said during a CNN interview.

Citing recent studies that show there might be waning immunity in vaccinated people, Fauci said U.S. health officials are reviewing data to determine when boosters might be needed.

“It’s a dynamic situation. It’s a work in progress, it evolves like in so many other areas of the pandemic,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “You’ve got to look at the data.”

Yeah, CDC stopped counting positive Covid cases among the vaccinated. For obvious reasons. They account for 50% of current infections. Covid fear keeps markets balanced - too much hope sends stocks to an epic bubble burst, a financial catastrophe. Fear kicks in to correct too much optimism or speculation in the markets. Great market for shorts. Huge correction in the next months, long due. Will come with the new lockdowns fears from Oct-March, and the rising case numbers and deaths in that period, they are going to attribute to the unvaccinated or to the new upcoming Indonesian Variant. Or a scenerio of increased cases and worldwide protests/riots is also likely. Gates already said this ain't going away untill 2022, if ever.

Oh and check c19early.com - 750 clinical, medical studies with 22 highly effective Covid medication, having treated 500.000 patients. If this was about treating people, this information would not be as censored as it is, and you would not have a covid death count, but mostly a hope count of EVERY single treatment being developed along with everyone involved, medical teams, institutions, independent scientists etc.. Why you don't have such a thing? Beacuse treating people and saving lives is NOT the priority. Censorship and persecution of truth was never this severe except in 3rd world countries. THIS is the real virus.

There are more deaths reported (12,000) since January in the VAERS database, than the prior 30 years. By the way, only 1-10% of adverse effects are reported into VAERS. https://swprs.org/the-latest-on-covid-vaccine-adverse-events/

Gamma variant is the Brazilian one (Alpha is UK, Beta is South Africa, Delta is India, Gamma is Brazil, Lambda is Peru). But the one i'm concerned about is the one coming out of Indonesia. Countless experts are warning it's now officially a breeding ground for new variants of concern.

A vaccine by definition is a vaccine is designed to protect you to in the event that you exposed to a hepatitis polio tdap, mmr those who had those vaccines how many have caught those viruses? You keep hearing trust the science. Don't call people waiting for the science ignorant. 4115,000 (covid -19) vaccinated people have died from covid as of June this year the CDC has stopped recording those numbers. I find it ironic the same people screaming my body my choice call people who are waiting on a proven vaccine horrible people.

Its never going to end, and the entire world has bought in. This is something we need to acknowledge and accept as a threat or it will own us forever. The fear of Covid will be our demise, not Covid itself. Vaccines arent saving us, and for 99% of people you will be sick for a couple weeks. Accept it and get back to having a life worth living.

Conflicting information . Next you will hear this. If you had your covid vaccine and you do (NOT) get a booster shot you are at risk for lukemia or other blood disorder. #norushedvaccine

The Pfizer / Biontech vaccines are about to expire in US warehouses anyway, so give a third dose so they don't go to waste. It is too late to hand them over to other countries.
