Yearly COVID 19 Shots Might Be Needed by Everyone

Yearly COVID-19 shots might be needed by everyone, Johnson & Johnson CEO now conveniently claims

By Dr Eddy Betterman

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine once is risky enough, but it may turn out that people will need to get the jab every year for at least the next several years on account of the virus’s many mutations.

Speaking to CNBC, Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky said that if new variants keep popping up, the COVID-19 vaccine may end up being more like the seasonal flu shot in the sense that it needs to be administered each year.

All of the COVID-19 vaccines on the market right now are relatively recent developments, and we have already seen new variants of the disease pop up in South Africa, the UK and Brazil since the vaccines were created, which means they may not afford the protection people expect.

Gorsky noted: “Every time it mutates, it’s almost like another click of the dial, so to speak, where we can see another variant, another mutation that can have an impact on its ability to fend off antibodies or to have a different kind of response not only to a therapeutic but also to a vaccine.”

Other public health experts have said that they believe coronavirus will be an endemic disease that is always present within the population but hopefully circulating at lower rates.

  1. and of course we will continue to need to wear the boot on our face -i mean the mask on our face- forever as well. because, even though they don’t work, theyre better than nothing. and if you wear 2 its twice as better than nothing. like two times zero. welcome to the ludicrous new normal.


  2. Technically speaking, the changes to the virus are NOT mutations as they don’t alter the virus’s GENOME. Instead it’s a single molecule that’s changing and there’s nothing new about this process. If you have a proper, working immune system, then it will take care of these small changes. But of course MUTATIONS sound so much worse than a single change.
