When we get a win, we take it. There will be fearmongering, gaslighting, propaganda, and very likely a surge in some oddball variant of Covid-19 that will be used to scare up more booster adoption, but for now we can celebrate the fact that the American people seem to be waking up to the con, at least in part.
A report from Just The News indicates around 1.5% of Americans who can get their 5th jab, the so-called “bivalent booster shots” from Moderna and Pfizer, have actually done so. I covered this on the latest short episode of The JD Rucker Show.
Roughly 98% of People Eligible to Receive Latest COVID Booster Have Not Received One
Barely 1.5% of Americans eligible to receive the updated COVID shot have acquired one, according to federal data, a sign that U.S. antipathy to the shots is continuing to grow even as experts have insisted on the need to regularly receive a new COVID booster.
Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that around 98% of Americans who could receive the latest COVID booster have not obtained one. The CDC authorized the distribution of updated Moderna and Pfizer boosters earlier this month.
The low booster numbers come as COVID caseloads continue to decline in the U.S. after a modest uptick that began in May of this year. Deaths have remained largely flat over that time, suggesting that prior infection rates and vaccinations are helping to keep mortality rates low.
A factor likely to further limit booster uptake rates is Joe Biden’s claim earlier this week that the pandemic is effectively “over.”
Dr. Scott Roberts, a Yale Medicine infectious disease specialist, told NBC News that the low booster uptake was “demoralizing.”
“I would expect a much higher proportion of Americans to have gotten the booster by this point,” he said.
To counter this, it appears the powers-that-be are pushing for a new round of Pandemic Panic Theater. One way they may try to do this is by spreading the new subvariant to Omicron, BA.2.75.2. This subvariant, already spreading fast across India and popping up in other nations, including the United States, is five times more antibody-evasive than other variants and subvariants. Whether one has been jabbed or has had a previous strain of Covid-19, including the current prominent strain of BA.5, this new subvariant appears to sidestep immunity.
Hopefully, few people will fall for the next surge, and this latest report is promising. The people are waking up to both the lack of danger from Covid-19 as well as the inherent danger in the jabs themselves. We need to keep spreading the word.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
