President Joe Biden said on Friday that Dr. Anthony Fauci is discussing the potential of coronavirus shots every five months.
“The question raised is should it be shorter than eight months? Should it be as little as five months? That’s being discussed. I spoke with Dr. Fauci this morning about that,” Biden said on Friday, according to the New York Post.
The report added booster shots for Americans “will start here on Sept. 20 pending approval of the FDA and the CDC committee of outside experts.”
The words took place during a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. In Israel, many citizens 60-years-old and above have already receive a third booster shot.
Fauci and some other experts continue to blame unvaccinated Americans for the rise in coronavirus cases in recent weeks. However, most of the new cases are from the delta variant, a new strand that has also included a number of breakthrough cases among those fully vaccinated.
The Pfizer vaccine became FDA approved last week, giving the vaccine a boost in support. While the government has no plans to require a vaccine mandate, a growing number of businesses, as well as government entities like the military, now require vaccination.
However, many Americans who have not yet been vaccinated have chosen not to do so for personal reasons. The push to make people receive a vaccination has a growing number of Americans concerned about government overreach, in addition to some health concerns.
In any case, the discussion of repeated vaccine shots every five months certainly takes away from claims of the shot being effective to stop the coronavirus. Americans continue to lose trust in Fauci and in Biden on the vaccine issue as the information continues to change almost daily.
