Covid-19 booster shot vaccine concept | Booster Shot Open to Americans With Moderna, Pfizer Vaccines | featured

President Joe Biden called on Americans inoculated with Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to take a third booster shot for added protection. This is the latest initiative introduced by the administration to prevent the spread of COVID-19 across the country.

Booster Shot Recommended To Fight COVID-19 Delta Variant

Health experts recommend getting a booster shot to get more protection from the highly contagious Delta variant currently sweeping in areas across the US. In addition, the latest research showed that the initial immunity offered by COVID-19 vaccines loses its strength over time.  

Biden endorsed the booster shots, saying “It’s the best way to protect ourselves from new variants that could arise.”

Soon, 155 million Americans who completed their vaccination using messenger-RNA vaccines such as Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna can get a third booster shot. Americans 18 years old and older should get the booster shot eight months after the second dose. The government announced it will have boosters available beginning September 20. 

Booster Shots Help You Stay Ahead of the Virus

Meanwhile, US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said the booster shots can help the United States stay ahead of coronavirus. The current two-dose regimen is effective by itself, but emerging evidence shows that vaccines lose their effectiveness over time. In addition, the highly infectious nature of the Delta variant warrants a booster shot. 

“Having reviewed the most current data, it is now our clinical judgment that the time to lay out a plan for Covid-19 boosters is now,” Dr. Murthy said. Currently, boosters are available from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. Americans 12 years old and above can get the Pfizer-BioNTech booster. However, Moderna boosters remain limited to those 18 years old and above. 

Expanded Vaccine Plan

Under an expanded plan, the US government will start offering the booster shots after both Pfizer and Modern receive Food and Drug Administration authorization.

Once cleared by the FDA, the government will prioritize elderly Americans 65 and older in chronic care facilities. Next, health workers and early vaccine recipients will follow. 

The third dose will not contain any new ingredients. It comprises the same exact formulation from the earlier vaccines approved for emergency use. Like its previous doses, the third dose is free to all recipients.

In fact, the US currently has more than enough supplies to provide its citizens. As a result, Americans can get their third dose at any of the 80,000 pharmacies and other vaccination sites authorized by the US government. 

Biden Also Wants To Counter Anti Mask Efforts In Schools

In addition, Biden signed a memorandum directing the Department of Education to exhaust all measures to ensure the safety of schoolchildren returning to their classrooms. This is the White House’s attempt to counter some states that prohibit mask requirements in schools.

According to reports, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona will use the department’s civil rights enforcement authority to prevent states from blocking mask requirements in schools.

“We need to make sure children are wearing masks in school,” Biden declared. He added that state politicians who oppose mask mandates are “setting a dangerous tone.”

    I think they need to stop mandating these shots seeing how it is against the law to make anyone take something that only has emergency use authorization. also people who have been so called fully vaccinated are still getting the virus, still spreading it & still dying from it.

  • I think this is just a way for Pfizer and Moderna to line their pockets financially. I am not convinced this is necessary as there needs to be more data from the initial vaccinations. I am hesitant to feel I need a booster, and am definitely against any non-medical group (GOVERNMENT) mandating that i should. As with any vaccination, there are going to be breakthrough cases as everyone’s DNA is specific based on other genetic dispositions.

  • Branden Oconnell says:

    I think the other two commentators are idiots get your vaccines people don’t be sheeple of the insane nazis posing as republicans

  • Gerald Takala says:

    This not based on Biden’s opinion it comes from data from Israel.Biden couldn’t come up with an idea if was hidden in his back pocket. These vaccines will be approved soon and will require annual boosters. Yes I will get the booster hopefully it can be combined with the flu vaccine.

  • Mike says:

    @BRANDEN OCONNELL has posted on here many of times. Socialist moron! The idiot is you with your socialist agenda.

  • J says:

    Branden is just pulling your strings people. Certainly no one is as stupid and ignorant as he is displaying. If not, he will be wearing an arm band in the future. He needs to look up the definition of socialist, I am sure he will see his picture there.

  • Marilin Fisher says:

    Yes, Brandon is a bit annoying. It is a shame he doesn’t see through the lies.

    An extra shot of something that doesn’t do anytbing positive, in facy, is telling your body the incorrect way to fight the virus. Why are hospitalizations 60% vaccinated people? Whybare we having a surge of a flu while vitamin d exposure is at its highest(summer) why is a respiratory flu spread by aerosol particles, with a photo sensitivity theiving during summer? Because you can’t mask or vaccinate this away.

  • Sam says:

    You know whats funniest about Branden? Is the fact that the nazi behavior is all coming from the left. Democrats are locking people down, democrats are censoring and cancelling others, democrats are forcing vaccinations, democrats are violating and in some cases trampling all over the 1st and 2nd amendments, and on and on.
    Hey Branden you can have all of my family’a shots. Sounds like you need them, along with some critical thinking skills. You must be a product of democrat public school system, common core, crt. But hey, thanks for the laughs!

  • David says:

    First of all, biden trying to push any vaccine or anything else at this point is a waste of time! biden has lost all creditability with many of the American people! Have someone else push these so called mandates if you really want the American people to believe in this! I for one I am concerned about the effects! Having a “snake oil salesman” pushing these covid vax’s makes me even more skeptical…just saying!!!!

  • Marsh Gutterman says:

    So the only people that will run out to get this 3rd shot are Democrats that watch CNN,MSMBC,FOX an the Disney Channel.

  • Ed says:

    There are some people that would eat dogshit if the government told them too. The sky is falling, the planet is dying, the cows fart to much. Some people will believe anything. Babbling morons.🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🖕
