Biden is to chicken to delete the order or defend in court. We just won't enforce our own executive order Roll Eyes



Biden Administration Decides Not to Enforce COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for Federal Contractors

https://www.theepochtimes.com/...1djIS5GbUk4WCJvDckzE

President Joe Biden’s administration has opted not to enforce a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors, following a recent court decision that enabled the government to enforce the rule in some parts of the country.

The White House Safer Federal Workforce quietly updated its website on Aug. 31 to say that the government “will take no action to implement or enforce” Biden’s executive order mandating COVID-19 vaccination for contractors. Clauses in existing agreements that implement requirements of the order will also not be enforced “absent further written notice,” the workforce added.

The workforce also made other updates, including clarifying that screening for COVID-19 symptoms for contractors can be self-conducted and does not need to be verified by government workers.

The moves came after a federal appeals court partially lifted a nationwide ban on enforcement of the order. The decision, taken together with rulings from other courts, means the government could have begun enforcing the order in 39 states. Workers with the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), which has sued the government, were designated as exempt no matter where they’re based.

The workforce did not respond to a request for comment on why it decided not to enforce the order. It said on its site that it wanted to “ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation.”

Possible Motivation
The administration is already facing multiple suits regarding the mandate, and the decision could stem from wanting to avoid additional litigation, Ben Brubeck, ABC’s vice president of regulatory, labor, and state affairs, told The Epoch Times.

“I think it’s possible that they are worried that if they put the policy back in place they’ll end up getting additional lawsuits filed in some of those other states,” Brubeck said.

After the recent decision, the ban only remains in states that have sued or joined lawsuits over Biden’s order. Those 11 are Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia.

One way to resolve the matter would be to rescind the order entirely. Biden’s administration has refused to do so as of yet, despite increasing calls to do so over waning vaccine effectiveness and a growing number of people who have protection from prior infection.

“That would provide more certainty for the entire federal contracting community. Obviously, if they did rescind the policy, I think people would be able to focus on bigger issues,” such as labor shortages and surges in material costs,” Brubeck said.

Denmark ENDS Covid vaccinations for almost everyone under 50.

Remember mandatory vaccinations? This is, well, the opposite. We've come a long way in a year. Except at American colleges - which, insanely, are forcing mRNA boosters on students.

https://alexberenson.substack....ack&utm_medium=email

Denmark will bar almost everyone under 50 from receiving more mRNA Covid jabs, the Danish Health Authority said yesterday.

Denmark had already ended Covid shots for nearly everyone under 18. The new rules go much further.

Danes under 50 will only be allowed to receive the shots if they are “higher risk of becoming severely [emphasis added] from Covid-19.”

The Danish Health Authority has not yet defined those groups, but they will likely include only a handful of people, such as those receiving cancer treatments that suppress their immune systems. Pregnant women are unlikely to be included.

Denmark did not explicitly say the risks of mRNA jabs now outweigh their benefits for healthy people under 50.

But that view is implicit in the announcement, which does not merely discourage but actually bans shots for those people, even though Denmark expects “a large wave of [Covid] infection” in the next few months.

In other words, the health authority is not stopping shots because Covid has ended. It now believes most people are better off getting the coronavirus than taking more mRNA.



https://www.sst.dk/en/English/...ion-against-COVID-19

The Danish move is particularly significant because Denmark has an excellent national health care system and has aggressively collected data on Covid and vaccines.

Denmark was among the first countries to stop giving Covid shots to healthy children and teenagers. Now other European countries are beginning to follow, with Britain ending mRNA shots for almost all children 10 and under.

In yesterday’s announcement of the new policies, Denmark explicitly dropped any effort to halt the spread of the coronavirus and said that it will focus only on protecting people at very high risk:

We expect that a large part of the population will become infected with covid-19 during the autumn, and we therefore want to vaccinate those having the highest risk so that they are protected from severe illness.



Meanwhile, expect the same “fact-checkers” who insisted that Denmark’s move to stop vaccinating people under 18 wasn’t actually a move to stop vaccinating people under 18 to try to spin yesterday’s announcement too.

Good luck with that.



Yet the growing push against mRNA shots for healthy children and young people has not percolated the woke hothouse that is American higher education.

Elite American universities, like the University of California-Davis, continue to announce their students will be required to receive additional mRNA jabs this fall - in this case, the “bivalent” vaccine, authorized by federal regulators based on data from a handful of mice.



What’s driving the obsession in American academia with Covid vaccines is not clear. But the health of students and rational risk-benefit analysis appear very low on the list.

Election fraud in America: the evidence

Once you open your eyes to the possibility that the systems you trust aren't as trustable as you were led to believe, you start to see things that you could never before consider possible.

Steve Kirsch

A US Senator suggested I view “SELECTION CODE: The Movie.” It’s excellent. I recommend everyone reading this take an hour to watch it, especially the last 15 minutes. Please promote it on social media after you view the film.
https://selectioncode.com/

It seems to have escaped notice by all the mainstream media. Are you surprised?

The movie reminded me of the current battle to expose the truth about vaccine fraud. Election fraud is arguably the more important issue, and I hope once the corruption is exposed on the vaccine, it will open people’s minds to the possibility that they’ve been fooled about election security as well. This movie tells a very compelling story.

The hero of this movie is Tina Peters, County Clerk and Recorder in Mesa County, Colorado and an outspoken advocate for free and fair elections.

Tina is the heroine of the movie and she has a piece of ironclad evidence: disk image dumps of the election machines before and after the manufacturer tampered with it. Anyone who has looked at this evidence is impressed.

What happens is that “they” spin it around and make it look to the public (and law enforcement) like she’s the evildoer. This distracts attention from the disk image evidence.

https://stevekirsch.substack.c...america-the-evidence



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

VBVAGUY, that video is fascinating and thought provoking. And well worth listening to, multiple times.

Thanks ever so much for your post.

here is a corollary link:

"Overall, the reasons are not clear, yet present data suggests that a mass public health preventive campaign against COVID-19 may have taken place, inadvertently, in some African countries with massive community ivermectin use."

US Life Expectancy Falls Again in ‘Historic’ Decline

BY Joseph Mercola

Athletes were the canaries in the coalmine, with several hundred dropping dead despite 80% having no symptoms or family history of heart disease. With the release of the latest statistics, the historic life expectancy drop can no longer be denied.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

According to the latest statistics, life expectancy in the United States dropped precipitously in 2020 and 2021. In 2019, the average life span of Americans of all ethnicities was nearly 79 years. By the end of 2021, life expectancy had dropped to 76 — a loss of nearly three years
Even small declines in life expectancy of a tenth or two-tenths of a year mean that on a population level, a lot more people are dying prematurely than they really should be
Native Americans and Alaska Natives have the highest rate of diabetes out of any ethnic groups — 1 in 7 — and obesity is also common. Both of these conditions have been identified as comorbidities that make you more susceptible to serious COVID-19 infection
Aside from COVID, causes of death listed as contributors to this loss of life expectancy include accidental deaths, drug overdoses, heart disease, chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. However, excess deaths from all causes are wildly elevated, across age groups
That life expectancy has dropped by three years since the start of the pandemic can be explained by the simple fact that the primary “remedy” for COVID — the experimental mRNA COVID jabs — are the most lethal drugs in medical history

According to the latest statistics reported by The New York Times1 August 31, 2022, life expectancy in the United States dropped precipitously in 2020 and 2021.

In 2019, the average life span of Americans of all ethnicities was nearly 79 years. By the end of 2021, two years into the COVID pandemic and one full year into the mass inoculation campaign, life expectancy had dropped to 76 — a loss of nearly three years.

Even small declines in life expectancy of a tenth or two-tenths of a year mean that on a population level, a lot more people are dying prematurely than they really should be. And this was nearly THREE years or 35 times more.
What Has Caused Drop in Life Expectancy?

According to The New York Times, Native Americans and Alaska Natives have the highest rate of diabetes out of any ethnic groups — 1 in 7 — and obesity is also common. Both of these conditions have been identified as comorbidities that make you more susceptible to serious COVID-19 infection, which could help explain why life expectancy among Native Americans and Alaska Natives dropped by four years in 2020.

They do not necessarily explain the continued drop in life expectancy in 2021, however. According to Minnesota Chippewa tribe member Dr. Ann Bullock, former director of diabetes treatment and prevention at the federal Indian Health Service agency, the COVID jab campaign was very successful among Native Americans and Alaska Natives, which made the continued drop during 2021 “all the more upsetting.”

Bullock told The New York Times,2 “The Native American population did quite well in the vaccination efforts, and that made us feel that 2021 would not be as devastating as 2020.”

Aside from COVID, causes of death listed as contributors to this loss of life expectancy include accidental deaths, drug overdoses, heart disease, chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. As you might expect, the idea that the COVID shots might have something to do with it is completely dismissed, even though it’s the proverbial elephant in the room.
Lethal Traffic Accidents Are at 20-Year High

The increase in “accidental deaths” seem particularly odd, considering the many lockdowns, but it’s possible the COVID jabs might have something to do with this as well. According to the U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), lethal traffic accidents have steadily risen during 2021 and 2022,3 reaching a 20-year high in the first quarter of 2022.

Some have started referring to these accidents as “vaccindents,” caused when jabbed individuals suddenly experience a stroke, heart attack or temporary black-out while driving.

It cannot be proven that side effects from the jab are causing these accidents, but it’s still something worth considering. The jabs are also known to cause mental fog, disorientation and confusion, which could contribute to any number of accidents, on and off the road.
‘Sudden Death Syndrome’ May Be Driving Down Life Expectancy

Excess mortality, a statistic that is related to but separate from life expectancy, certainly plays a role. Excess mortality refers to the difference between the observed numbers of deaths (from all causes) during a given time period, compared to the expected number of deaths based on historical norms, such as the previous five-year average. (Formula: reported deaths – expected deaths = excess deaths.)

Across the world, excess mortality has dramatically risen since the start of the pandemic, and barely a day now goes by without a healthy adult suddenly dropping dead with no apparent cause. People have died during live broadcasts, in the middle of speeches and during dinner.

Clearly, they were feeling well enough to go to work, to an event or a restaurant, and something caused them to instantaneously die without warning. These are the people making up these excess death statistics. They shouldn’t be dead, yet something took them out.

While COVID-positive deaths were part of the equation in 2020, excess deaths really took off after the rollout of the COVID jabs, and in 2021 far exceeded deaths labeled as COVID deaths.4

In the video above, John Campbell, retired nurse teacher, reviews excess death data in Scotland, where excess mortality is now so high across all age groups that the government has launched a formal inquiry to determine the cause.5 Data show excess deaths are 11% above the five-year average, and has remained above average for the past 26 weeks.
Healthy Athletes Dropping Dead at Record Numbers

Campbell also reviews the individual case of Rob Wardell, a 37-year-old champion mountain biker who died in his sleep mere days after winning the Scottish MTB XC championship.6 His partner, Katie Archibald tweeted:7

“I still don’t understand what’s happened; if this is real; why he’d be taken now — so healthy and happy. He went into cardiac arrest while we were lying in bed. I tried and tried, and the paramedics arrived within minutes, but his heart stopped and they couldn’t bring him back.”

Wardell is just one of several hundred athletes who have suddenly dropped dead, worldwide, and the one common denominator is that they all had one or more COVID jabs.

Between January 2021 and August 2022 (a period of 19 months), at least 1,249 athletes suffered cardiac arrest or collapse after COVID injection, and at least 847 died,8 with more being recorded as reports come in. Historically, the annual average of sudden death in athletes has been between 299 and 69,10 so this is clearly nowhere near normal, regardless of what the “fact checkers” say.

Campbell goes on to review a paper in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology,11,12 which notes that 80% of athletes who die suddenly have no symptoms of family history of heart disease.

The authors suggest using genetic testing to identify athletes at risk of sudden cardiac death. Still, with the dramatic uptick in athletes suddenly dying, it seems beyond unreasonable to attribute such deaths to undiagnosed preexisting heart disease.
Excess Death Trend in the US

A National Institutes of Health preprint13 published mid-May 2022, reviewed excess all-cause mortality across 3,127 counties in the U.S. between March 2020 and December 2021. According to this paper:

“An estimated 936,911 excess deaths occurred during 2020 and 2021, of which 171,168 (18.3%) were not assigned to COVID-19 on death certificates as an underlying cause of death …

The proportion of excess deaths assigned to COVID-19 was lower in 2020 (76.3%) than in 2021 (87.0%), suggesting that a larger fraction of excess deaths was assigned to COVID-19 later in the pandemic. However, in rural areas and in the Southeast and Southwest a large share of excess deaths was still not assigned to COVID-19 during 2021 …

Excess death rates were highest in Mississippi (301 deaths per 100,000 residents) followed by Arizona (246 deaths per 100,000 residents) in 2020 and in West Virginia (298 deaths per 100,000 residents) followed by Mississippi (271 deaths per 100,000 residents) in 2021.”

Again, while a majority of the excess deaths were attributed to COVID (which we know simply means they had a positive PCR test at the time of death, or within a certain time period of death), 171,168 excess deaths were not attributable to COVID. So, why did so many people die that “shouldn’t” have?
Working Age Adults Dying in Record Numbers

Life insurance data tell an even more horrifying story. In January 2022, OneAmerica, a mutual life insurance company based in Indianapolis, reported that the death rate of working-age Americans (18 to 64), in the third quarter of 2021, was 40% higher than prepandemic levels — and these deaths were not attributed to COVID. They also had an uptick in long-term disability claims. According to CEO Scott Davidson:14

“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business — not just at OneAmerica. The data is consistent across every player in that business.

And what we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic. Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic. So, 40% is just unheard of.”

US Marine Corps Quietly Changes COVID-19 Vaccine Policy

https://www.theepochtimes.com/...s0FksEe7nOJ3NJeZiYXD

The U.S. Marine Corps issued guidance to roll back its strict punishments for service members who are seeking COVID-19 vaccine exemptions.

In guidance posted online on Sept. 14, the “Marine Corps will not enforce any order to accept COVID-19 vaccination, administratively separate, or retaliate against Marines in the class for asserting statutory rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.”

That guidance was changed following a recent Florida federal court order that temporarily blocked the Marines from taking action against individuals who seek a religious exemption. The latest guidance posted by the Marines made reference to that order, which was handed down in August.

“Involuntary administrative separation processing of class members for refusing COVID-19 vaccination is suspended,” the memo also said, while it directs commanders to “pause all administrative actions related to the involuntary separation of a class member, regardless of the current status of the separation process.”

Listing several examples, the Marine guidance added that “no orders will be given to receive the vaccine, no counselings will be issued for refusing the vaccine, no administrative separation boards will be conducted,” and no discharges will be issued.

If the Florida judge’s order is vacated or expires, the Marines may still enforce punishment against those who don’t meet the COVID-19 vaccine requirement, a spokesperson told Fox News. Last year, Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin issued an order that mandated vaccinations for all members of the armed service.

“The Marine Corps is aware of the class-wide preliminary injunction issued by a District Court judge for the Middle District of Florida preventing the Marine Corps from enforcing any order to accept the COVID-19 vaccine or administratively separating Marines who refused to receive the COVID vaccine after their religious accommodation appeal was denied,” Marine Corps spokesperson Maj. Jay Hernandez told the outlet.

Recruitment Down
In recent months, reports have indicated that every branch of the U.S. military is struggling to find new recruits, triggering warnings from some members of Congress.

Some have flagged the Pentagon’s strict vaccine requirement while others have said it is because of the slow creep of “woke” diversity trainings and mandates into the military. And others say that high U.S. obesity rates may be a contributing factor, and others note that the pay is not adequate.

“We are on the cusp of a military recruiting crisis,” Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) told Politico in July. “When Republicans take control of Congress in a few months,” he added, “averting the recruiting crisis will be a top priority of the Military Personnel Subcommittee.”

Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.), a former Army ranger, told the outlet that the Pentagon should promise more money in the form of “enlistment incentives and bonuses.”

Vax-injured advocates meeting with Feds

A group of advocates for people injured by COVID-19 vaccines is meeting with federal officials in Washington, D.C. on Monday through Wednesday of this week to discuss the scope of the problem and the need for compensation for vax-injured people and survivors of those who have been killed by the vaccine and related issues.

React19 leaders will be meeting with federal senators, members of Congress, and Food and Drug Administration officials primarily to discuss changes they say need to be made to the government’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The VICP currently is not compensating most COVID-19 vaccine-injured people for their injuries, though many have reported being injured by one or another of the hastily approved government-mandated COVID-19 vaccines. Vax-injured advocates say a small percentage of all injures are being reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) because health officials are strongly discouraging doctors from diagnosing such injuries as such and reporting them.

The meetings were facilitated by Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ 8th District), who was made aware of the plight of COVID-19 vaccine-injured people and the need for changes to the VICP by her former constituent, Steve Wenger. He’s a former Arizonan who was vaccine-injured in Arizona and now lives in Rogers, Minn. Wenger and other React19 members will stress to federal officials the need for changes to the VICP, among other issues including the hasty approval of those vaccines despite what they say was inadequate testing of them.

Wenger reluctantly got the jab while working as a construction project manager on a Native American reservation in Arizona where COVID-19 had hit the community hard. He was pressured to get the vaccine and after he did his health took a nearly deadly downward spiral, including being a quadriplegic for months. He’s been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a disorder where the immune system attacks the body’s nerves and can ultimately paralyze.

Wenger’s health has improved considerably due to treatment, but his balance and ability to walk are still greatly compromised since he has no feeling in his legs from the knees down. It’s easier for him to ride his motorcycle than it is for him to walk with a cane, because walking on any uneven surface such as grass can make his ankles give out.

Still, the ordeal awakened in him a new faith in God and a new purpose -- advocating for recognition of and help for COVID-19 vaccine-injured people. That new purpose in life led Wenger to tirelessly advocate for vax survivors with various politicians and to eventually connect him with Rep. Lesko, who was his representative when he was living in Arizona. Rep. Lesko facilitated the meetings of React19 members and federal officials.

“Our goal is to discuss the VICP and revisions that need to be done to it,” Wenger said.

Whatever their outcomes, the meetings represent a tearing of the veil of government silence and denial regarding the safety (or lack thereof) of the various COVID-19 vaccines. While admitting that the vaccines don’t prevent people from getting COVID-19, the federal government and most government agencies still require employees to get one of the vaccines in order to work for them, and are still maintaining that the vaccines are totally safe.

Changing the VICP to enable all COVID-19 vax-injured people to be compensated for their injuries would be an admission that the vaccines are not entirely safe.

Despite his compromised health, Wenger is upbeat and aggressive as a bulldog. He plans to ask the FDA tough questions.

Yep. The problem is two fold:
1. Government grants immunity for liability to the vaccine makers.
2. People buy into the propaganda and take the jab.

Even when forced to choose between a job and the jab... it's still a bad choice. You can get another job but you often can't get your health back.

COVID-19 virus-detecting mask can alert of exposure via your smartphone
quote:
The sensor on the mask has tiny synthetic molecules – called ‘aptamers’ – which are able to be tweaked to detect proteins unique to specific pathogens, such as SARS-Cov-2, H5N1 (colloquially known as ‘bird flu’) and H1N1 (‘swine flu’). Once the aptamer detects the virus, the sensor amplifies the signal via a specialised component known as an ion-gate transistor (which is highly sensitive and able to detect very low voltage signals) and sends an alert to the user’s phone.

And the rate of false positives??? Article didn't happen to mention anything related to that issue, but I guess that's just not important, right? Roll Eyes And they're still trafficking in that BS that mask wearing prevents transmission of Covid which at this point shouldn't need to be debunked any more.

Vax-injured advocates meeting with Feds

A group of advocates for people injured by COVID-19 vaccines is meeting with federal officials in Washington, D.C. on Monday through Wednesday of this week to discuss the scope of the problem and the need for compensation for vax-injured people and survivors of those who have been killed by the vaccine and related issues.


It was well known that the vaccines had emergency authorization, which comes with zero liability on the part of the manufacturer (or health provider who injects it) for injuries.

Furthermore, this tragedy was foisted upon us by a large number of individuals who should have known better.

So first we should utterly bankrupt the charlatans who pushed the jabs. Pfizer as an entity should be bankrupted for their profiteering while (at best) ignoring probable signals of serious dangers.

Not one penny of my money to a victim! I was demonized, and still am, for remaining jab-free. I tried to warn people and was mocked for it.

I am sympathetic to the innocent, such as my 5 yr old granddaughter who now has seizures since her 2nd dose. I know many others who were likely injured by the jab which they chose to take under duress or pressure from their doc whom they trusted. My healthy best friend has had a stroke in his 50's, and was forced to get jabbed to keep his job. Now he's forced to retire. Another friend, a retired airline captain, had Guillian Barre Syndrome shortly after being jabbed, which has significantly damaged his health and quality of life.

Once again the taxpayer is going to get screwed, while the true criminals go free.

Federal Court Strikes Down Biden Admin’s School Mask, Vaccine Mandates

A federal judge has dealt another blow to the Biden administration regarding its ongoing response to the pandemic.

U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty in Louisiana struck down the administration’s mask and COVID-19 vaccine mandates for staffers of federally funded Head Start programs, The Hill reported on Thursday, adding:

In his ruling, Doughty found that the plaintiffs had satisfied the requirements to warrant a permanent injunction. He ruled that the plaintiffs — a group of Head Start teachers from across the country along with several state governments — faced a “substantial threat of irreparable injury” if the mandate wasn’t taken down.

“Plaintiff States will incur the increased cost of training and of enforcing the Head Start Mandate, will be unable to enforce their laws, and will have their police power encroached. The Court finds that this would be an irreparable injury,” Doughty wrote in his ruling, according to The Hill.

The Liberty Justice Center, which was involved in the suit, noted that Sandy Brick, a teacher, filed suit in December in Doughty’s court to block the mandate. She is also being represented by the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, according to a press release from the justice center.

“Although President Biden recently declared that the ‘pandemic is over,’ the fight to restore Americans’ individual liberties is not,” said Daniel Suhr, managing attorney at the Liberty Justice Center. “We will continue to fight for teachers like Sandy and the low-income students they serve until every illegal and unjustified mandate is wiped from the books. Today’s decision is a significant step toward undoing the injustice perpetrated against everyday Americans throughout the COVID-19 crisis.”

Sarah Harbison, general counsel at the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, noted as well following the ruling: “Louisiana teacher Sandy Brick has been serving her students through adversity and uncertainty the last two years. Today, this decision vindicates her right to teach without sacrificing her freedom.”

The press release further explained the genesis of the mandate:

The providers received the new mandate on Nov. 30, 2021, when the Office of Head Start under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published an “interim final rule.” The requirement demands that teachers, staff and volunteers in Head Start programs be “fully vaccinated” by Jan. 31, 2022, or face losing their jobs. It also placed a universal mask mandate on all adults and children over two years old.

“The public interest is served by maintaining the constitutional structure and maintaining the liberty of individuals who do not want to take the COVID-19 vaccine,” Doughty also noted in his ruling. “This interest outweighs Agency Defendants’ interests.


“The public has a liberty interest in not being required to take a vaccine or be fired from their jobs. The public interest must be taken into account before allowing Agency Defendants to mandate vaccines. Although vaccines arguably serve the public interest, the liberty interests of individuals mandated to take the COVID-19 vaccine outweigh any interest generated by the mandatory administration of vaccines,” he added.

The Liberty Justice Center noted that the Biden administration must now decide whether to appeal Doughty’s ruling, and if it does, then it will be heard by the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, the same court that blocked the administration’s vaccine mandate for private businesses.

That said, The Hill noted that Doughty’s injunction applies to the 24 state governments that acted as plaintiffs in this case: Louisiana, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

“The masking requirement for Head Start grant recipients is one of the only remaining federal mask mandates. Last week, HHS announced it would be dropping the requirement in the near future to align with current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),” The Hill noted further.

Face the facts, assholes- nobody wants your snake oil and nearly everyone is sick and tired of the plandemic. Fear mongering isn’t working anymore.

Less than 2% of eligible people have gotten updated Covid booster shots, 3 weeks into the rollout

At least 4.4 million people have received an updated Covid booster since the start of the month, according to data released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That number represents around 1.5% of people currently eligible to receive the shots in the U.S.

The data does not include people who received updated Pfizer-BioNTech boosters in Idaho and Texas, the CDC said, so it is likely an underestimate. The White House estimates the number to be closer to 5 million doses of the new booster, The Associated Press reported.

The CDC signed off on updated versions of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s booster shots on Sept. 1, and pharmacies and other vaccination sites began administering the new shots around Labor Day weekend. The bivalent shots target both the original coronavirus strain and the currently circulating omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5.

Dr. Scott Roberts, a Yale Medicine infectious disease specialist, said the relatively low booster uptake was “demoralizing.”

“I would expect a much higher proportion of Americans to have gotten the booster by this point,” he said.

Roberts said a lack of public awareness about the shots or the prevailing narrative that the pandemic is ending might have hindered the vaccine rollout.

“The fact that this booster came out days before Biden said the pandemic is over is a huge mixed message," he said. "Now it’s going to be that much harder to convince those at risk who are on the fence to get a booster.”

Still, the U.S. has seen an uptick in overall demand for Covid shots since the booster rollout began: The U.S. is currently administering around 314,000 Covid vaccine doses per day, as a weekly average. That's nearly triple the number from the start of the month.

As of Tuesday, the U.S. had shipped more than 25 million bivalent booster doses to tens of thousands of sites. The vast majority of the population now lives within 5 miles of a site offering the updated vaccines.

The CDC recommends that everyone over 12 get an updated booster, as long as at least two months have passed since their last Covid shot. People who recently got Covid should wait at least until their acute illness is over, and the CDC says they can consider delaying their boosters until three months after their symptoms started or since they first tested positive.

People can mix and match vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, but Pfizer’s updated booster is available to people ages 12 and up while Moderna’s is limited to ages 18 and up.

Some pharmacies reported shortages of Moderna's updated booster earlier this week. But CVS said Thursday it has started to receive additional Moderna doses and expects more over the coming days and weeks. Walgreens said the availability of Moderna doses varies by location.

Nearly 80% of the U.S. population has received at least one shot of a primary Covid vaccine, and nearly 68% is considered fully vaccinated by the CDC, meaning they've gotten either one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or two shots of Pfizer's, Moderna's or Novavax's, which was authorized in July.

Biden administration officials have pointed to the updated boosters, however, as a critical step to pushing the U.S. out of the pandemic.

"For the first time since December of 2020, these vaccines, our vaccines, have caught up with the virus," White House Covid-19 Response Coordinator Ashish Jha said at a briefing earlier this month.

Jha said the shots should provide better protection against infection and transmission, as well as more lasting protection against severe illness, compared to earlier Covid vaccines.

But experts are still gathering real-world data, since the shots were distributed without results from human trials. Laboratory studies found that the boosters generated strong antibody responses against BA.4 and BA.5, and human trial data showed that a similar vaccine yielded a strong antibody response against the initial omicron strain, BA.1.

Authorization of the bivalent boosters for children ages 5 to 11 may be just weeks away, Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said at an event this week with the Covid-19 Vaccine Education and Equity Project.

Public health officials expect to see another Covid wave around Thanksgiving, and flu season tends to pick up in October, so the CDC says the updated Covid boosters and flu shots can be given together.

If the pace of booster vaccinations doesn’t pick up, Roberts said, the U.S. could see an increase in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

"Many people are certainly due for a booster and this comes at a critical time," he said. "We’re going into the winter season when we expect cases to go up. Many areas around the country right now are continuing to have high levels of circulating virus."
