- The Facts:
- The European Union is considering a nine-month expiration date on its Covid-19 vaccine certificates, which allow tourists certain freedoms to travel while the coronavirus pandemic continues
- Although we don’t know yet, vaccine certificates may need a booster shot to remain up to date.
- Reflect On:
- Why are governments allowed to roll out such measures against the will of so many people?
- If vaccines don’t stop the spread of COVID, why are mandates being forced upon people?
The European Union is currently contemplating a nine-month expiration date on its COVID-19 vaccine “certificates.” The certificates currently allow tourists specific freedoms to travel during COVID. Multiple countries have implemented vaccine passport systems in order for their own citizenry to access certain rights and freedoms they were able to access prior to the pandemic.
The executive arm of the EU, The European Commission, proposed on Nov. 25th, 2021 that the EU COVID certificate should be updated due to the fact that immunity provided by the vaccines from severe COVID and death wanes.
Thursday’s recommendation from the European Commission did not yet address booster shots. The commission said that,
It can reasonably be expected that protection from booster vaccinations may last longer than that resulting from the primary vaccination series.”European Commission
As such, a new expiration date could be announced in a couple of week’s time to include the advice for booster shots.
Around the globe, double vaccinated people are now ending up in hospitals and ICUs.
As far as halting transmission, the vaccines have not been successful in doing so. We are seeing exponential outbreaks in highly vaccinated populations, and in fact in some of the most vaccinated regions on the planet. This is not a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” as politicians have claimed.” Infected unvaccinated people carry the same viral load as those who are unvaccinated.
Updating vaccine passports to require a third dose has already happened in Israel. Israel’s coronavirus czar, Dr. Salman Zarka, has expressed that Israeli citizens will need a 4th dose of a coronavirus vaccine.
In the foreseeable future it’s most likely that booster shots will be required to update vaccine passports in multiple countries. Then as immunity wanes from the booster shot, it may be announced that a yearly shot is required, or perhaps one shot every 9 months or so in order to keep your passport updated.
Dr. Ozlem Tureci, co-founder and CMO of BioNTech who developed a COVID vaccine with Pfizer, told CNBC that she expects people will need a third shot of its two-dose COVID-19 vaccine. She also said that she expects people will need to be vaccinated against the coronavirus every single year similar to the seasonal flu.
What’s not being relayed to the citizenry via mainstream media are the number of people who oppose these measures. Some of the largest protests in history have taken place around the world during this pandemic and they have not been televised.
Do we really live in a democracy when so many voices go unheard and unacknowledged? Should we give governments the authority to mandate such measures on the citizenry?
Mandating COVID vaccines when they do not stop transmission and only protect the individual from severe COVID and death for a short period of time doesn’t make sense to many people. This calls into question the idea that you are protecting another person by getting vaccinated.
Furthermore, given all of the serious vaccine injuries reported as a result of COVID products, many people are having a hard time making sense of vaccine mandates.
By October 15th, 2021, adverse events reported worldwide passed 2,344,240 for COVID vaccines alone in the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting system VigiAccess. As of October 15, 2021, VAERS recorded 122,833 serious adverse events, of those 17,128 resulted in death, post administration of COVID vaccines. Previously confidential Pfizer documents have been released by the FDA revealing that there were tens of thousands of adverse reactions reported worldwide from Pfizer’s COVID vaccines within the first two months of 2021.
Other factors for hesitancy include the extremely high survival rate of COVID, as well as the robust science that’s emerged regarding natural immunity.
Are these emergency measures really for our protection, or is there something else going on here? Is the pandemic being used by powerful people to take more authoritarian control?
