Fauci: Forget An Antibody Test, Just Get The Booster Shot

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

How about… no.

We’re just supposed to blindly trust this LIAR? Seriously? That’s what we’re going with?

We’re just supposed to ignore antibody testing and go straight for the booster? I thought antibodies were the golden ticket…

Is Fauci afraid that an antibody test will prove that the vaccine doesn’t actually provide a life-changing amount of antibodies, and all of this has just been a sick, twisted little game?

Don’t start thinking I’m a conspiracy theorist! I like to question things and explore different possibilities. I’m genuinely wondering what the scientific reason for skipping an antibody test would be.

Is this following the science? We don’t even know what the long-term effects of the original dose will do. Now we want to roll the dice and see what happens when we shoot people up with even more of it, even if they DON’T NEED IT?

I’ve said this from the beginning: take the vaccine, or don’t. It should be the decision of each individual. I don’t respect one group more than the other, and I hate when I see people do this on either end of the spectrum.

However… this just doesn’t sit right with me. All we’ve done for the past year and a half is follow directions handed down to us from these people. Now we’re even more confused than when we started.

The CDC is saying that vaccinated citizens DO NOT need to wear masks because of the delta variant.

At the same time, LA County is “recommending” that vaccinated citizens mask up indoors because of it.

Flip flop, flip flop, flip flop…

There are so many different rule variations that I honestly have no idea what to believe anymore, and I know I’m not alone in that.

The Daily Caller had this to say about Fauci’s comments:

Dr. Anthony Fauci said antibody tests are a waste of time and that he planned to get a COVID-19 booster shot to be safe, Business Insider reported Wednesday.

Fauci said he believed protection from the COVID-19 vaccine would diminish with time, and booster shots will be needed, according to Business Insider.

Fauci said he won’t trust antibody tests to tell him whether he would need a booster shot, and he recommended the public to follow in his footsteps, according to Business Insider.

Fauci said he will instead pay attention to two signals. The first is the rate of infections in those who participated in the vaccine trial in early 2020. The second is laboratory data showing how vaccine protection is fading, Business Insider reported.

The Food and Drug Administration also advised against using antibody tests to test one’s protection against COVID-19. Not all antibody tests target the viral protein that the vaccine does, Business Insider reported.
