Bill Gates told Anderson Cooper on “AC360” that those over the ages of “50 or 60” will “probably have to get boosted every six months” or so, until “we get even better vaccines.”
That was shortly after he revealed how sucky the current slate of shots are by admitting he just tested positive for COVID-19, despite having four doses.
And that was after host Cooper said he had three doses but tested positive for COVID in April.
Does anybody see anything wrong with this picture?
“I’ve tested positive for COVID,” Gates tweeted a few days ago. “I’m experiencing mild symptoms and am following the experts’ advice by isolating until I’m healthy again. I’m fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted and have access to testing and great medical care.”
The prevailing medical Gates advice on COVID shots seems to be if at first they don’t succeed, try, try again. And then some.
“For people who are 50 or 60, they will probably have to be boosted every six months, until we get even better vaccines,” he said to Cooper, The Blaze reported, “As we get more data, they might even make that shorter for people, you know, say 60 or over 70, where the duration seems to be a bit lower.”
So booster every six months for those age 50 or 60. Booster every — what, four months? Three months? Two weeks? — for those “say 60 or over 70,” Gates said.
There’s that famous leftist science again — the maybe, perhaps, might be, could be, take it and see what happens crowd.
Gates is the guy the media crowned altruist of the year for pouring millions of his own dollars into COVID-19 vaccine research — and then pooh-poohed any kind of in-depth coverage about his conflicts of interest of earning big bucks back from the very vaccines he promoted and pushed as necessary to save the world from pandemic deaths (despite early data that showed recovery rates ranging from 97% to 99%).
A clue to his altruism?
From CNBC in January 2019, before the coronavirus — this headline: “Bill Gates: My ‘best investment’ turned $10 billion into $200 billion worth of economic benefit.” The story went on to write that Gates found “investing in global health organizations aimed at increasing access to vaccines creates a 20-to-1 return,” while “putting $10 billion into the S&P 500 would have grown only to $17 billion over 18 years.”
No wonder he wants booster upon booster upon booster.
No wonder he wants whole populations of the world reliant on shots at six-month intervals, no, wait, maybe four-month intervals, no wait, maybe “shorter” than that.
“[W]e’re in for ongoing vaccination to stay absolutely safe,” he told Cooper.
Yes, no wonder Gates is “in for ongoing” shots, for the course of lifetimes, if necessary.
He’s, ahem — altruistic.
