Vaccine demand has cratered
Not just in the United States; Britain is getting set to toss jabs
The number of Americans willing to submit to mRNA doses continues to plunge.
Even with children 5 and over now eligible, the total number of doses administered in the United States every day is well under 1 million. That figure is barely above the July 2021 lows, before the Biden administration tried and failed to force its big-company vaccine mandate through.
Even the current trend significantly overstates what demand may be going forward, because boosters are propping it up. The number of new vaccinations is close to zero. More third shot “boosters” are administered now than either first or second doses.
But demand for boosters is also plunging.
That trend is also unlikely to reverse. The 20-30 percent of Americans who remain terrified of Covid have already received their boosters.
And at this point, stories of people who became infected with the Omicron variant after receiving a third shot are legion, even in the same outlets that relentlessly promote vaccination. Thus Americans do not have to know the hard numbers from countries like Scotland to understand that within months, boosters likely increase the risk of infection with Omicron - a reality that isn’t exactly helping demand.
In fact, internal data I have seen from health-care systems shows that despite enormous pressure, about half of all nurses and other hospital workers are refusing to take a third shot.
If they are required to receive boosters, the system - already under pressure from staffing shortages - may collapse. Awareness of this reality is likely the reason California postponed its booster requirement one day before it was set to take effect.
Meanwhile, the United Kingdom is now openly discussing the prospect of having to dump unused and expired mRNA vaccines because of a lack of demand.
Don’t worry, though, the vaccine companies get paid for the shots no matter what happens to them!
I could not imagine living beneath these California threats of booster mandates, then, at the last minute, the state backs down. This is torture. This is unforgivable.
This is turning out to be a total and complete clusterfuck from all angles. Alex - I believe that you equated the vaccine rollout to the Mortgage crisis of 2008 a few weeks ago. You couldn't have been more right. Remember when all the "experts" told us that there was no way the housing market could drop. And then it did? Everything is falling apart for the MRNA shills.
