This week Joe Biden confirmed that he is in talks with Dr. Anthony Fauci about suggesting booster shots of the controversial Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine every five months. Originally, Americans were told two shots would be all that is required, then annual boosters, then 8 month boosters, then six month boosters, and now five month boosters.
Assuming the Pfizer vaccine is never cleared for children younger than 12, this would mean children born today could receive 175 shots aimed at vaccinating them against COVID-19 over the course of an average lifespan.
In a press conference yesterday, Joe Biden discussed booster shots. “The question raised is should it be shorter than 8 months? Should it be as little as five months? That’s being discussed, I spoke with, uh, Dr. Fauci this morning,” said Biden.

Assuming the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is never approved for children younger than 12, this would mean a child born today could potentially receive 175 shots over the average American lifespan of 78 years. This would be in the form of the two shots that were originally claimed would sufficiently vaccinate individuals, plus 173 five month booster shots.

If the Pfizer vaccine is approved for children younger than 12, and is eventually given to infants as part of a regular vaccine schedule, this could mean children born today will receive as many as 187 COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots over the course of a 78-year life.
Should the average American lifespan increase over these 78 years, as many predict, the number would rise with it. If the average lifespan of Americans were to rise to 100 over the remainder of this century, as some experts predict, then a child born today could receive as many as 240 total injections to protect against COVID-19.

Pharmaceutical companies that create COVID-19 vaccines have made record profits throughout 2021, with Moderna making $12 billion in profits so far this year, and SEC filings revealing that the company expects to make even more money from booster shots.
President Donald Trump recently noted that he is skeptical of COVID-19 booster shots. “If you’re a businessman, you’ll say, ‘you know what, let’s give them another shot, that’s another $10 billion of money coming in’,” Trump said, describing the whole situation as “crazy.” He added, “Then they were good for a year or two, and I could see the writing on the wall, I could see the dollar signs in their eyes.”
