The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) is now claiming that all Alaskans who are “immunocompromised” should get a third COVID shot. The recommendation, issued Aug. 20, follows lockstep with new CDC advice based on some studies showing decreased protections for those who were previously deemed “fully vaccinated” after taking two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna shot.

In addition to recommending a third shot for immunocompromised people, the Alaska health department said the state is also “closely following” news about a federal plan to offer booster shots to the general public.

On the one hand, the notice claims that the latest studies show the vaccines “still provide strong protection against severe illness, hospitalization and death,” but it then states that the “new information, along with the high transmissibility of the Delta variant, point to the need to strengthen the protections provided by the vaccines.”

Alaska health department says the latest data shows that “many immunocompromised people are unable to mount a robust enough immune response after the initial two-dose primary mRNA vaccine series is completed.”

Currently the third dose of Pfizer or Moderna are only available to people whose immune systems are deemed compromised. Those who have had the Johnson & Johnson shot are not addressed in the new recommendations.

The new guidelines appear to contradict the CDC’s repeated assurances that people were deemed “fully vaccinated” after having two doses of Pfizer and Moderna.

While booster shots for the general public are not yet authorized by the FDA, the Alaska Dept. of Health and Social Services is already planning to offer them later this fall under the expectation that the FDA will grant approval.

“It is anticipated that Alaskans will be advised to schedule their booster dose appointment starting eight months after their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines,” the Alaska health department stated. “Recommendations for the single-dose J&J vaccine will be forthcoming, pending the results of ongoing studies.”

On Aug. 19, White House COVID advisor Anthony Fauci told MSNBC that he believes all Americans will require a COVID booster in the future.

    So being the caring person I am. I would like to offer up my two doses of covid shot (if I could) which I haven’t gotten, to any persons who would like a third maybe even fourth booster (why not, 1 mask, 2 mask, 3 mask for full protection) but are not yet able to get them because they’re not in the immunocompromised category. See, we the unvaccinated aren’t all uncaring folks.

  • G Aleution says:

    The foreign corporation CDC has overturned the country and the adherants love it. They’re all living out their Cherry Ames public nursing, green space monitor dreams which include taking you away from primary relationships family and property. Their American dream is to ruin everyone else’s.

    • Sharon Turner says:

      100 %correct. Whether most of the swamp critters has actual fingerprints on the “Fauci/China Flu it matters not. It is their Dream come true. The chance these immoral, incompetent, educated idiots have sought. To burn down, tear up US Constitution, the list is long but the goal is the Same as that of Mao, Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, the Kim’s: Power, and control for themselves ruination for WE the sheeple. As a 75 yr old, I grew up watching USSR, Cuba, Idi Amin, Pol Pot. “They never ‘get it’ until ‘pelts of their Loved ones hang from their iron gates, everything in ruins and millions of corpses. Read up on Holodomar, Ukraine. Learn your history. We, USA is in a replay loop. great grandma PS What will you do for your grandkids?

  • Andy says:

    Time tested and peer reviewed Ivermectin or HCQ would have been a better option for everyone, but we can’t have these things, it apparently takes away from their grand scheme of things. How many more boosters for a failed vaccine?

  • Jen says:

    Like the Hospitals aren’t overrun enough because of the first two shots. Yeah! Go ahead offer a third shot, the hospital employees they need more work. This will make up for the times when Doctors and Nurses had the time to sit around the Nurse station and gab. Now! It’s the time to make up for it and Work, Work, Work! Hahaha

    It goes on and on, more controlling of your body/life.
    Stand up to this bull crap.

    It is the Mark of the Beast. We are in the Great Tribulation. Remember the Jewish Religious leaders thought they understood the prophecies of the coming Messiah; but they completely missed Jesus the first time around. Don’t be misled this time around.

  • DoneWithIt says:

    Medical tyranny.
    The de-humanization of the unvaxxed by the vaxxed has begun.
    During the Black Plague the mobs would accuse the head of poisoning the wells, so they were driven out of the cities.
    The nazis started de-humanizing the jews by calling them dirty, filthy disease spreaders and made them wear yellow stars – which prohibited them from going yo the markets, libraries, schools, the theater.
    Sound familiar?
    We all know what happened next – brace yourself for what is happening.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    Something I have seen zero information about is if someone is vaccinate, gets Covid, like.y a less severe infection, do they then have antibodies? It really seems that antibodies are a more sure thing for a longer period than the vaccine treadmill.

  • Cris says:

    Untested and unproven and experimental drugs, which have no long term testing done, Not one bit of evidence proven that the vaccines are safe , just hearsay and nothing to backup anything that has been said, No matter what can be said, Never will I ever trust the hospital’s or the government ever again. My body my choice.

  • Klee says:

    This is very disheartening as I am witnessing many who succumbed to these bio-injections now having issues with their bloodwork. The third injection will kill them yet this is exactly what ill informed medical practitioners are programmed to do.
