(RepublicanInformer.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci is so desperate to keep his face on TV, that this week, he lowered himself by appearing on MSNBC’s resident racist Joy Reid’s show “The ReidOut” on Monday evening.
Fauci told Reid that there would likely be an uptick in COVID cases because of the new BA.2 variant, so the diminutive media hound suggested that people over the age of 50 get a fourth dose of the COVID vaccine to prepare for this likely “uptick.”
How about no?
This guy does not want the pandemic panic to end.
Fauci warned that the BA.2 variant is more transmissible than the BA.1 variant.
(There was a BA.1 variant?)
And since the immunity provided by the vaccines wanes, Fauci said he thinks we will see an “uptick in cases in about half the country.”
Joy Reid jumped in and asked if people over 50 should go ahead and get a fourth dose of the vaccine or if they should wait.
Fauci said he would recommend a fourth shot for people over 50, prompting Reid to tell her (tiny) audience “You heard it from the man.”
In January, Fauci had argued against a fourth dose of the COVID vaccine, saying it may not provide significant additional immunity. He cited scientific studies that showed if too many doses of the vaccine are given, some immune cells may eventually stop responding to the vaccine.
In February, it was reported that a recent study out of Israel showed that adding a fourth shot offers very little additional protection against COVID.
In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine last week, researchers found that the added protection from a fourth dose of the vaccine wanes quickly.
But sure, “you heard it from the man.”
