Oh shit, here we go again. you want to keep those freedoms? It’s gonna mean boosters.
If you’re in Australia you would have heard Chief Health Officer of Victoria Brett Sutton constantly tell people if you get vaccinated it will stop the transmission of Covid. That was a lie.
You would have heard all the leaders say if you get vaccinated you’ll be fully protected against covid. That was a lie.
You also would have heard if you get two doses of a covid vaccine you would be considered fully vaccinated and you’ll get your freedoms back. That was a lie.
Yet here we are with the Australian government about to force boosters on Aussies.
Australians will now soon need three shots of a Covid jab to be considered ‘fully-vaccinated’, as Prime Minister Scott Morrison calls an emergency national cabinet meeting with state leaders just days out from Christmas.
The controversial plan is top of the agenda for the high-level talks, as fears grow the nation’s Omicron Covid outbreak is starting to spiral out of control because the government told people vaccines would stop the spread.
Health ministers in both New South Wales and Victoria have also issued a joint letter urging the government to fast-track the booster roll-out, allowing Australians to access the jab just four months after their second dose. The recommended time frame is 6 months.
The scientific evidence on how effective two shots are against the new supermutant strain shows that the vaccines are not working as well as promised and wearing off much sooner than expected, but on Monday vaccine producer Moderna announced its booster dose can beat Omicron. Because as Trevor Noah rightfully pointed out we should totally trust the companies that make millions from rolling out vaccines.
NSW and Victoria are both in favor of reclassifying only those who have received three jabs as ‘fully vaccinated.’
Studies show that two vaccine doses begin to wane in as little as six months and the Omicron strain is more resistant to vaccines. The same for Delta.
Moderna on Monday claimed the mRNA vaccine used widely in Australia should offer high protection against Omicron.
However, Moderna also said this is preliminary data, which is not yet peer-reviewed, though it added that it will continue to develop a jab specific to the variant.
