(LifeSiteNews) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) decided Tuesday to endorse the use of a second COVID-19 “booster” shot – a fourth jab – in the over-50 population and a record fifth dose for those with compromised immune systems, all while foregoing normal consultation procedures.
A statement from the FDA Tuesday announced the regulatory body’s authorization of both Pfizer and Moderna’s COVID mRNA shots to be injected a fourth time in those over 50 years of age and children over 12 years of age “with certain kinds of immunocompromise.”
In addition, the agency updated its emergency use authorization (EUA) protocol to include a “second booster” for those over 18 who have compromised immune systems on top of the “three-dose primary vaccination series,” amounting to a recommendation of five shots of the mRNA-developed inoculation for supposed protection against the novel coronavirus.
FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research Dr. Peter Marks said that the changes come amid evidence suggesting “some waning of protection over time against serious outcomes from COVID-19 in older and immunocompromised individuals,” recognizing the dwindling efficacy of the shots against that which they were supposedly developed to protect.
In a tone of uncertainty, Marks advised that the extra doses announced Tuesday “could help increase protection levels” instead of confirming that there would be any definite advantage.
PETITION UPDATE (5/12/2021) -
It seems that Dr. Anthony Fauci's role in the NIH's funding of so-called "gain-of-function" research may be catching up with him.
In the last couple of days, both U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Fox's Tucker Carlson have laid into Fauci for his alleged promotion of this dangerous research which develops bat-based coronaviruses into more potent variants, capable of infecting humans.
Dr. Fauci denied funding this research.
But, Senator Paul noted that a resident virologist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li and Dr. Ralph Baric, an American virologist funded by Fauci's department in the NIH, "collaborated on gain-of-function research where they enhanced the SARS virus to infect human airway cells and they did it by merging a new spy protein on it. That is gain-of-function. That was joint research between the Wuhan Institute and Dr. Baric. You [Dr. Fauci] can’t deny it."
And, later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson picked up on the discrepancy, noting Fauci’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public health directives on account of COVID-19 while also being allegedly tied to the origin of the virus and its spread throughout the world.
So, the evidence - both in testimony and in the court of public opinion - continues to mount.
Could we ask you to consider SIGNING and SHARING this important petition, which calls for Dr. Fauci to be fired and investigated for any role he played in promoting and funding the dangerous research which may have cost the world dearly in lives and jobs lost.
When concerned scientists warned the US government of the great danger of creating superviruses in the lab, one man publicly defended the risky experiments: that man was the influential head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), none other than "Mr. Science" himself: Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In 2014, the same year the US government called for a moratorium on this insanely dangerous research, Dr. Fauci's NIAID began funding a program to study the transmission of bat coronaviruses to humans.
Not only did his funding go to develop the technology for making bat coronaviruses spread more easily to humans, but much of it went to the lab located in the exact location where the Covid pandemic eventually emerged: Wuhan, China.
Like every person, Dr. Fauci deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
But the evidence is so overwhelming that Fauci gambled with a supervirus and lost (the whole world lost), that, at a minimum, he needs to be fired from his position of public trust and must be investigated for possible violations of US law which mandated a moratorium on this extremely dangerous practice of creating superviruses in the lab.
However Dr. Fauci, far from being held responsible for his dangerous gamble, has been promoted to the point where, currently, he is the highest paid employee in the US Government.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition if you agree that Dr. Anthony Fauci should instead be immediately fired and investigated for his role in causing the Covid-19 pandemic.
Just like the Wall Street moguls, whose financial negligence precipitated the financial crisis of 2008, received massive bailout bonuses, Dr. Anthony Fauci recklessly pushed for the research that probably caused the deadly pandemic. And now, he, too, has been rewarded with money and power.
As has been carefully and meticulously documented by Steve Hilton of Fox News, the probable origins of the coronavirus point to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Fauci was one of the greatest proponents of developing superviruses in labs.
Dr. Fauci was responsible for the funding of much of the research through the NIAID.
And, it appears that Dr. Fauci funneled taxpayer funds through an intermediary to allow the research to continue in the unsafe Wuhan Institute of Virology, even after the US government banned the funding of this dangerous research.
Until a thorough investigation into his role of the origins of the current pandemic has taken place, Dr. Fauci should not be in a position of public trust.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to demand that Dr. Fauci be fired immediately and investigated fully for his role in the creation of Covid-19 and the ensuing pandemic.
P.S. It should be noted that Dr. Fauci not only has proven to be catastrophic for public health with his advocacy of dangerous research, but he has also been a disastrous public health advisor, advocating measures that have negatively impacted every aspect of our lives, from the economy to our most fundamental liberties.
P.P.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently stated that he is delighted to be pushing Joe Biden's return to US taxpayer funding of abortions abroad. So, evidently, not only does Dr. Fauci have problems with public health, public safety, and economics, but also with basic human rights and embryology.

In later comments to journalists, Marks said at “some point, we are going to have to realize that this is a virus that’s going to be with us and that we have to come to grips with dealing with it on a regular basis.”
Shortly after the FDA authorization, the CDC issued its own statement updating guidelines on COVID shot doses for the supposedly vulnerable groups in accordance with the new FDA emergency use authorization (EUA) recommendations.
An Israeli study published February discovered that after three doses, booster shots do “not boost immunity,” instead restoring immunity “to its peak levels.” Furthermore, the group found that the fourth jab had an efficacy of between just 11 and 30 percent with most of the healthcare workers (HCW) in the trial who were infected being able to transmit the virus “with relatively high viral loads.”
“Thus, the major objective for vaccinating HCW was not achieved,” the researchers noted.
A CNBC report noted that neither the FDA nor CDC consulted their respective vaccine advisory committees before decreeing that additional shots could be taken, with Marks defending bypassing the advisory board on account of the decision supposedly being “relatively straightforward.”
However, CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices member Dr. Paul Offit criticized the decision to forego the ordinary approval process as “sort of fait accompli.”
“We talk endlessly about how we follow the science — it doesn’t seem to work out that way,” Offit charged.
Dr. Marty Makary of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine explained that denying the experts the chance to scrutinize the data before authorizing the drug’s usage is “like a judge issuing a verdict and then having lawyers make their arguments.”
Is this following the science?? FDA will authorize 4th doses this week by bypassing the typical voting process of their external experts. FDA will then convene them after the authoriz to “discuss”. It’s like a judge issuing a verdict and then having lawyers make their arguments.

“There is zero clinical data that a 4th dose reduces hospitalization risk. There isn’t even any evidence that a 3rd dose reduces hospitalization risk in young people,” Makary added.
The physician highlighted comments from Dr. Eric Rubin, editor-in-chief of leading medical journal The New England Journal of Medicine and member of the FDA’s vaccine advisory committee, who said that he “”hadn’t yet seen enough data on fourth doses to make a determination about whether they are needed for anyone beyond those who are already recommended to get them – adults who are severely immune deficient.”
The U.K. is set to follow America’s footsteps, with fourth COVID shots being made available to all people over 75 years old and anyone with a compromised immune system who is at least 12 years old from spring. A fifth jab for the same groups will be available by the fall.
