Health dictator Anthony Fauci declared Monday that Americans will need to take more COVID vaccines, just a day after the CEO of Pfizer proclaimed that a fourth shot is needed immediately.
In an interview with CNBC, Fauci was asked how many more shots will be needed, and responded “The answer is: we don’t know. I mean, that’s it…it is likely that we’re not done with this when it comes to vaccines.”
The comments dovetail with those of Albert Bourla, who said Sunday “It is necessary – a fourth boost – right now,” when asked about vaccines.
The Pfizer head said “The protection that you are getting from the third [vaccine] is… not that good against infections, but doesn’t last very long but we are just submitting those data to the FDA and then we will see what the experts also will say outside Pfizer.”
Bourla also told CNBC last week that Pfizer has officially notified the FDA of an upcoming application for a fourth vaccine:
While admitting there is “very little information” to go on, Bourla has previously stated that a fourth vaccine is needed, with eventual annual boosters being the “most likely scenario”.
The CEO of Moderna, Stephane Bancel, also suggested last month that a fourth vaccine is coming.
The calls for more vaccines also come as China has instituted a massive lockdown of 51 million people, covering the entire northeastern province of Jilin, where 24 million people live, as well as the southern cities of Shenzhen and Dongguan, with 17.5 million and 10 million, respectively.
China reported 1,437 cases of COVID across dozens of cities on Monday, equating to a four-fold increase within the span of one week.
