Ron DeSantis proven correct about booster shots for Americans

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was served some vindication via the CDC’s newest guidelines that treats those who haven’t kept up with their COVID-19 vaccination boosters the same as those who have not been vaccinated. 

According to The Daily Caller, DeSantis was fact-checked “false” for predicting that those without boosters would soon be categorized like those without the vaccinations altogether. 

Just weeks later the CDC updated its guidance, saying that those who were “fully” vaccinated do not have to quarantine at all if exposed to the virus, they should just wear a mask for up to 10 days.

However, those who are vaccinated but not boosted should be treated like those who are unvaccinated and quarantine for five days if they were exposed to COVID-19 and wear a mask for another five days. 

It was early November of 2021 when DeSantis predicted that Americans who received only one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination would soon be treated unvaccinated by authorities. 

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday in Tallahassee, DeSantis claimed that the advent of Covid-19 booster shots means “those individual who have gone through a normal vaccination series for Covid…will be determined to be unvaccinated very soon”.

“They will do that – they are gonna tell you: ‘you’re unvaccinated and you have to get a booster,’” he said, adding that those who did not get a booster “could potentially face loss of employment or other types of penalties”.

That ludicrous theory was promptly treated like a conspiracy and The Independent’s Andrew Feinberg ran a fact-check on the Florida governor. 

Feinberg called DeSantis statement a“false” claim because Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Rochelle Walensky said a day prior in her statement that the CDC was not planning to change the definition of fully vaccinated to require boosters.

“Are you going to take back your “fact-check” of the future now that it’s the future & the CDC is treating the un-“boosted” the same as the unvaccinated, @AndrewFeinberg @Independent? Maybe you should stop fact-checking the future,” said Christopher Bedford, a senior editor for The Federalist. 

The CDC isn’t alone in their police changes, however. Now there are numerous universities wig gave decided that in addition to vaccination mandates they will also put booster mandates in place for students living on campus. 

Additionally, there are employers now mandating a third shot, and the states of California and New Mexico are now requiring healthcare workers to get boost in order to keep working in the health care field.
