New York City (LifeSiteNews) — A vaccine researcher, the editor-in-chief of the Vaccine academic journal, told MarketWatch he predicts COVID jabs will be necessary for over 100 years.
“So let me make a prediction, which will be hard for any of you to hold me to because we will all be dead by then, but your great-great-great-grandchildren will still be getting immunized against coronavirus,’ Dr. Gregory Poland said on a January 19 webinar about the future of COVID, according to a Daily Mail transcription.
“How can I even say such a thing? If you got your flu vaccine this fall, you were immunized against a strain of influenza that showed up in 1918 and caused a pandemic,” he added.
“We are not yet at any stage where we could predict endemicity. We’re not going to eradicate it.”
Poland is a doctor with the Mayo Clinic and a frequent recipient of money from the National Institutes of Health according to his “clinical profile”, which says: “Dr. Poland’s research has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health since 1991.” He has received nearly $2 million in the past three years to study non-COVID vaccines.
The Daily Mail noted that Poland’s dire predictions were similar to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s.
“I would hope that [Covid becoming endemic is] the case. But that would only be the case if we don’t get another variant that eludes the immune response of the prior variant,” Fauci said this January 17.
The ongoing push to continue to jab people, including a prediction that the shots will be required for more than a century, could contribute to increased skepticism of the shots.
