Liberal Health Minister demands boosters every nine months

Trudeau’s Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos says Canadians should get vaccinated every nine months to be considered ‘up to date.’

“Let me be very clear: Up to date means you have received your last dose in the past nine months.”

He further singled out those with two doses, saying their immunity had waned. He added that for those with two jabs subsequently caught COVID, the “risk is high you could get re-infected, with all of the downfall, including the risk of developing symptoms of long Covid.”

“…As health experts and physicians will tell you, it’s critical that you go and get the shot that’s waiting for you.” 

Of course, Duclos chooses which health experts to listen to. Four doctors in Canada recently penned a letter to the Toronto Sun, questioning the government’s “science.”  

“Generally speaking, governments make policy based on, among other things, credible sources of scientific information. Does the Trudeau government really ‘follow the science’? As medical doctors, we’d like to critically examine some recent statements.”

“A New England Journal of Medicine study showed that six months after a second Pfizer shot, vaccine efficacy against symptomatic Omicron infection fell to 8.8%. As for boosters, studies on the third and even a fourth dose show a similar picture of waning efficacy within months. To prevent transmission, we would need a carousel of repeat immunizations for everyone every three months. This is impractical and impossible.”

Indeed, studies suggest natural immunity is better than that conferred by the leaky Covid vaccinations and about the same as ‘hybrid’ immunity (natural immunity + vaccination). 

Meanwhile, EU regulators recently warned that frequent booster shots might weaken the immune system. Granted, this warning pertained to boosters every four months rather than nine, as Duclos urges.

While Duclos didn’t say vaccine passports will be implemented again, we know where he stands on the issue, given that he’s previously said mandatory vaccinations are a conversation worth having.
