• Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings

For those who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago, according to the CDC.

  1. I hope that Arizona gets a federal judge to issue a restraining order against Biden’s mandate. I hope the courts rule against Biden and take away all immunity for prosecution for the side effect of the vaccine so that the Americans hurt by this mandate can bankrupt Biden and all the CEO’s

    72,000 people have died from the covid shots. over 3 million of been maimed.

    the CDC has admitted that he actual number of people killed by covid is likely 3 to 6% of that reported. the means less then 50,000 actual covid deaths.

    more people have died from the vaccine then the disease.
