Skip to comments.Pfizer CEO pushes annual COVID-19 vaccine shot as company makes billions: 'It's Easier to convince people to do it'; CDC Planning to Change Definition of "Fully Vaccinated"

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla admitted Saturday that he is hoping people around the world will receive annual COVID-19 vaccine shots.
The admission comes as the global community implements booster campaigns because, as Reuters noted , the COVID vaccines have proven to be effective at preventing most deaths and hospitalizations, but not transmission.
"This will not be a good scenario," Bourla said of regular booster shots, Reuters reported. "What I'm hoping [is] that we will have a vaccine that you will have to do once a year."
Bourla's justification? Because convincing people to receive an annual shot is easier than convincing them to receive bi-annual boosters.
"Once a year — it is easier to convince people to do it. It is easier for people to remember," Bourla explained. "So from a public health perspective, it is an ideal situation. We are looking to see if we can create a vaccine that covers Omicron and doesn't forget the other variants and that could be a solution."
During the same time period, Pfizer reported a net income (or profit) of nearly $8.146 billion, up from just $1.469 billion during the third-quarter of 2020.

Meanwhile our current vaccines are basically worthless as stated by the Pfizer CEO!
Pfizer CEO: Our Vaccines Offer ‘Limited, If Any Protection’

Speaking during remarks to a J.P. Morgan healthcare conference this week, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla openly stated current vaccines the company developed for Wuhan coronavirus offer “limited, if any” protection against contracting current variants of the disease. He then encouraged booster shots.
The statement from Bourla comes as the Biden administration continues to justify vaccine mandates for federal workers, contractors and private businesses. The Supreme Court heard arguments about President Biden’s mandates for private companies and medical workers last week. A ruling is expected soon on the constitutionality of the mandates.
A number of people who have pointed out the waning efficacy of Pfizer’s vaccines, which Bourla touted last year as being “100 percent” effective against contracting or transmitting the virus, have been banned by social media companies.

Omicron Makes Biden’s Vaccine Mandates Obsolete
“There is no evidence so far that vaccines are reducing infections from the fast-spreading variant. ... there have been mass Omicron outbreaks in heavily vaccinated populations, scientists are highly uncertain the existing vaccines can stop it from spreading. ... there should be sufficient evidence that the vaccine is efficacious in preventing serious infection and/or transmission.” For Omicron, there is as yet no such evidence. ...
The little data we have suggest the opposite. One preprint study found that after 30 days the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines no longer had any statistically significant positive effect against Omicron infection, and after 90 days, their effect went negative—i.e., vaccinated people were more susceptible to Omicron infection. Confirming this negative efficacy finding, data from Denmark and the Canadian province of Ontario indicate that vaccinated people have higher rates of Omicron infection than unvaccinated people.
If this person had any honor he would commit seppuku.
So when one of the other real vaccines finishes trials and it’s one and done, what’s Albore going to do then?
His product is a prophylactic gene therapy, no different from a flu shot. To call it a “vaccine” is to distort the meaning of the word, which is what Leftist lawyers always do.
The Cat Doctor must be looking to change careers.
Not only that but hari kari too, but I repeat your sentiment.
Hey, Mr Bourla, what about the dividend? You’re making over $5 a share and only paying out $1.60? If you don’t want to raise, how about a special, maybe two or three bucks a share?
“Fully vaccinated” is the term used in Biden’s mandates. It means two shots. Public Healthis changing the name because they know that can’t mandate a third shot…the public simply won’t stand for it.
“CDC Planning to Change Definition of “Fully Vaccinated””
so far, the CDC has NOT changed the definition of “Fully Vaccinated” ... they’re just issuing mealy-mouth videos yammering about “up to date” ... not the same thing as an actual, written edict ... yet ...
I object to the use of an adverb (fully) as they have no inherent meaning. You are either vaccinated or you are not. What they need to change is the word “vaccinated.”
So much for vaccines.
Well that's a kick in the pants of the official narrative. I imagine the Wall Street Journal will imminently be fact checked by Snopes and kicked off social media for COVID disinformation for publishing it.
There will likely be annual lockdowns and mask mandates too as the flu will dissappear, and all cases of illness by virus Wil. Be labeled as covid, and be deemed “much worse than previous outbreaks”
The final fallback position is the “less severe illness” claim which cannot be substantiated since the virus affects individuals so differently, with effects ranging from death to not even knowing you’ve caught it and beaten it.
I submit it cannot be proven that the shots have any worth whatsoever.
I agree that flu season will see us “masking up” annually.
the public simply won’t stand for it.
I hope so. Do remember the majority of Americans rushed into the experimental jabs, human nature tells us many who were jabbed will NEVER admit their mistake. “ It is easier to fool someone than convince them they have been fooled”. Fortunately the tide is turning, side effects, deaths, vax inability to provide immunity, masking hoax, attacks on alternate effective treatments,etc….their narrative is collapsing.
Think past the collapsing C flu, vax, hoax. What to do when those that have been fooled realize in earnest what their government, news media, and corporations have done to them?
This is indeed a strawman claim, with no real statistics to back it up. Plus, what exactly is “less severe illness”? My wife and I are unvaccinated and spent the last week sick with Covid — and we were back on our heels. We’re still suffering some issues with tomorrow being one full week.
While we were certainly very ill, we did not have to go to the doctor or hospital. We took common sense procedures, no ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine, with the most exotic thing we treated ourself being Quercetin. An argument could be made that — as sick as we were — we had “less severe illness” than someone who had to go to the hospital.
So again, looking at the curve, most folks had “less severe illness” — vaccinated or not…
Pfizer CEO has ZERO CREDIBILITY....nada....nothing...NONE.
Anyone that listens to these azzholes is a moron.
Anyone with a lick of sense would avoid anything with the Pfizer name on it like the plague.
Right on, Bourla. And my hope is that “people around the world” will send me money every year.
F*ck you and the little syringe you rode in on.
I see a war crimes trial in your future.
Modern "medical science" (at least since the infamous "two weeks to flatten the curve" era that began nearly two years ago) means that if something doesn't work you simply change the definition of what "it works" means.
I must admit that this new tactic is a lot easier to do and requires little effort ... other than the presence of a frightened, gullible, stupid public.
