Did you guys hear there's a new clot shot available? Yeah, neither did I. But since we still have libs everywhere in this country, they're rolling out another one, hoping to make a few mil on us. This will not be happening in Florida, however, as the DeSantis Administration is only promoting the shot for those who may need it, that being people 65 and older.
To this, I say great job, Governor DeSantis. You're still leading the way when it comes to the Covid hysteria, and I can't believe I'm saying that in 2023.
In a deviation from federal recommendations, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' administration is advising residents under age 65 not to get the new Covid boosters from Pfizer and Moderna.
"What I have directed our department to do is to provide guidance that really recommends and advises against the use of these mRNA Covid-19 vaccines for anyone under 65," the state surgeon general, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, said at an online panel hosted by DeSantis on Wednesday.
The statement ignores the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendations: The agency said Tuesday that everyone ages 6 months and up who has not gotten a Covid shot within the last two months should get a new booster, which targets a subvariant of omicron called XBB.1.5.
"The statement ignores the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendations."
Ladapo questioned the CDC's rationale.
"With virtually every walking human being having some degree of immunity and the questions we have about safety and about effectiveness — especially about safety — my judgment is that it's not a good decision for young people and for people who are not at high risk at this point in the pandemic," Ladapo said.
And the CDC, being so intertwined with the big pharmaceutical companies who produce the shots, fired back at Florida for the decision:
The CDC's director, Dr. Mandy Cohen, fired back Wednesday, calling Florida's move "dangerous" in a statement shared by the White House.
"As we head into the fall and winter seasons, it is important that Americans get the updated COVID-19 vaccine. They are proven safe; they are effective, and they have been thoroughly and independently reviewed by the FDA and CDC," Cohen said. "Since this Administration's launch of the largest adult vaccination program in our nation's history, COVID-19 vaccines have saved millions of lives and kept countless people out of the hospital. Public health experts are in broad agreement about these facts, and efforts to undercut vaccine uptake are unfounded and dangerous."
They're really still using the "safe and effective" line. Amazing stuff, considering everyone I know who got the shot also got Covid, and badly. Not to mention their reactions to the shot itself, initially.
Fun times we live in, folks. Even after two years of evidence, liberals will still line up for this shot like it's the newest iPhone.
