WATCH: Psaki Admits Fully Vaccinated Doesn’t Mean A Person Is Up-To-Date Of Vaccines

On Wednesday, as she always does, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki juggled the mountain of issues facing the Biden administration. This included the startling announcement that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer would be retiring, President Joe Biden’s talks with China, and the never ending circus that is COVID-19. While Psaki was able to give vague answers on most, she appeared to stumble when a reporter asked her if the Biden administration has regretted the unclear distinction between what makes a person “fully vaccinated” and what makes them “up-to-date on vaccinations”. 

Being sure not to place the blame on President Biden or the White House, Psaki said, “It was not a decision made by the White House – it was a decision made by our public health experts at the CDC who make those definitions, or determine those definitions.” She added, “They’ve also said that the term ‘fully vaccinated’ refers to your primary series. So that means, being up-to-date on your vaccines.”

Psaki was sure to add that parents and adults need to stay educated on the most up-to-date information pertaining to the COVID-19 guidance in the future. This included the need for more people to get the booster. “It is also true that we think more people need to get boosters. That boosters are very effective in protecting against serious illness, hospitalization.”

The questions wouldn’t stop coming as the hosts for “America’s Newsroom”, Dana Perino and Bill Hemmer, grilled Psaki about COVID-19 and if there will come a time when the restrictions are taken away. Perino even noted that in the U.K., Boris Johnson announced the end of vaccine passports and mask mandates. This led her to ask, “Will the president provide America an off-ramp to COVID and especially for those, the unvaccinated?” 

While the Biden administration might be persistent on getting people to take the plunge, the hysteria surrounding COVID-19 is starting to clear as people are starting to follow the science. 

Do you support individual military members being able to opt out of getting the COVID vaccine?

RESIST!! DO NOT COMPLY!! We MUST stand up to this medical tyranny. If we keep complying,it places us in a weaker position. Once you give up your power to them,you will NEVER regain it. Why do you think they are pushing this vax crap so hard? WE are many. THEY are few. THEY are afraid of US. THEY want US to be afraid of THEM.

When will the public realize that we’re being used as Guinee pigs for an ineffective vaccine? The variants will keep coming until companies and the public say ” Enough”. It’s all about the socialist movement wanting to control US, keep US segregated and living in fear.
