    The immunity the shots create provide no immunity memory.

    Did you read the article or is it more fun beating up Fauci? (somebody who didn't do exactly what Trump wanted at every moment)

    Do you think I pulled the 7 month comment out of my butt? Yes I read it. He’s suggesting a booster shot for people who took the vaccine 7 months ago or longer. I said that in the OP so what makes you think I didn’t read it? Or maybe you didn’t read the OP

    Fauci simply simply following the science here. Or put another way, he didn't pull that 7 months "out of his butt".

    There is no science on booster shots or if they’re safe. He’s following nothing but his agenda

    The article that you posted has some budding scientific data on the science behind booster shots if you chase the links further. Why do you think they will be unsafe? It's just a booster.

    We'll probably be advised to have booster shots once a year, like with the flue

    Of course. Responding to the pandemic is very much his agenda

    What is the difference in trusting it ONE time versus SEVERAL times?

    It's sort of like having to replace the tires on your car every month. A subtle reality that your tires are worthless; just as the vaccine is fast becoming worthless. It's the pandora's box I described long ago.

    Damn you replace your tires every month? Is your driveway just a bed of nails or something?

    I wouldn't call tires worthless, I'd just say that they have an expiration date and it's quite possible that the immunity from the coronavirus also has an expiration date. My problem is that if it's only 7 months, that's one weak ass vaccine.

    Yes, in addition to the flu, and in addition to each new virus, and all their associated variants. The pandora's box.

    Just inject whatever the pharmaceutical corporations tell the govt that you need. They care about you and know whats best for you.

    I look at the science and make my own decision. Happy to sit back and wait for data.

    Sure.

    But we are talking about the drift of changes in the new generic variations, and also the small loss of robust response to the time passage of human response to COVID immunity.

    New purmutations of COVID need to be developed.

    Existing COVID diseases may need produces to deal with the original 95% effectiveness to a time-worn response of 80%, and some of us would like to have the original 95% effectiveness, or better.

    Don't like doing occasional booster shots, and prefere nothing? Cool. Do nothing.

    "booster shot for vulnerable Americans"

    ""Those who are transplant patients, cancer chemotherapy, auto-immune diseases that are on immunosuppressant regimens, those are the kind of individuals that if there’s going to be a third booster, which might likely happen, would be among the vulnerable," he told CNN on Sunday."

    is that you,if not, he is not talking about you

    but if the science suggests that a booster shot every so many years is needed, so be it

    So will the special legal liability exception (where you're not allowed to sue the pharmaceutical company if anything goes wrong) still be in place?

    Keep on injecting every 7 months. If you suffer any medical consequences, you have no legal recourse.

    next thing you know, they will recommend antibiotics whenever we get a bacterial infection that would have killed people in the past.. Progress sucks, doesn't it?

    for a certain type of people

    ""Those who are transplant patients, cancer chemotherapy, auto-immune diseases that are on immunosuppressant regimens, those are the kind of individuals that if there’s going to be a third booster, which might likely happen, would be among the vulnerable," he told CNN on Sunday."

    Or maybe you didn’t read the Article

    Extrapolate much? I liked your social distancing match meme animation though. That was kind of cool.
