Former NIAID Director and White Home chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci stated Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe ” that it was probably a yearly COVID booster shot can be obtainable just like the Flu shot is.
Co-host Mike Barnicle requested, “How many booster shots we’ll be getting? How long in the future we will be getting booster shots?”
Fauci stated, “You know, we don’t know definitely the answer to that. It is likely that this thing is not going to disappear, it’s not going to be eradicated, and it’s not going to be eliminated. So it’s going to be around, you know, for the foreseeable future.”
He added, “So it is likely that we will require an intermittent likely at the same time as we get a flu vaccine, at least once a year. Very similar to what we do to keep updated on our immunity against influenza. It is very likely that a similar situation we’ll be experiencing with COVID, namely getting a booster shot once a year, probably at the same time as we get an influenza shot.”
