(Reuters) - The United States had administered 422,070,099 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country as of Sunday morning, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Those figures were up from the 420,657,683 vaccine doses the CDC said had gone into arms by Saturday.

The agency said 221,520,153 people had received at least one dose, while 192,453,500 people were fully vaccinated as of 6 a.m. EDT on Sunday.

The CDC tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA) Inc and Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) Inc/BioNTech, as well as Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ)'s one-shot vaccine.

About 18.6 million people have received a booster dose of either Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine. Booster doses from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson were authorized by the U.S. health regulator on Oct. 20.

And btw fully vaccinated Psaki just tested positive for COVID. This is why vaccine mandates are pointless and exposes low risk people to unnecessary heart risks. Psaki was fully vaccinated and still got infected and poses a risk to those around her.

Anecdotal evidence, I think. In my research, vaccinations reduce the transmission rate by 50 to 90%.

Yet the vaccinated sheep still walking around with masks on and getting their heart inflammation boosters despite now knowing that the vaccines do not prevent the spread of the virus and lose most of their efficacy after a few months. This virus is less deadly for the majority of the population than the common flu. More children are being reported to have heart issues. including cases of sudden death, now than the number of children who have died from COVID. Reports are even coming out from Europe that these has been an unexpected rise in heart attacks among adults since this summer. Some countries have halted use of the vaccines in young people. Meanwhile the news networks in the US who as sponsored by pharma companies, and politicians who receive donations from these pharma companies, and Fauci who funded the lab that created the virus all tell you it is "safe and effective" and silence anybody who says otherwise and even fires them from their jobs.

Please, let’s aim for at least some dignity on here. Posting ridiculous accusations is not dignified. Big Pharma has many more ways in which it can reap profits than sell this vaccine. Don’t get me wrong: I am not taking the vaccine! But I think it is as good as modern medicine gets. I don’t like calling anyone a sheep, I’m not going to point fingers at people and I don’t need to vent any frustrations on here. I simply agree with you on one point: the efficacy of the vaccinations falls sharply in a few months. The reason why I don’t take it is simple: political pressure. I’m not going to inject a foreign substance into my bloodstream just because the government is forcing me to. If you think like I do, and you prioritize other personal criteria above ohysical health, I encourage you to reject the vaccine. If your primary concern is physical health, please take the vaccine. It’s as simple as that!
