We knew this was coming, Colorado and New York governors recently announced their support for redefining what it really means to be “fully vaccinated.”
During a press conference on Thursday, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul revealed that she is planning to introduce legislation to change the definition of being “fully vaccinated” to include a booster shot.
The Democrat governor mentioned that although this legislation needs to gather more data and is well thought out, the change may happen soon saying that “at some point, we have to determine that fully vaccinated means boosted as well,” CNY Central reported.
Another Democrat governor, Jared Polis from Colorado, said on Sunday that Coloradans may need a booster shot to be “fully vaccinated.”
In an exclusive interview with Meet the Press, Gov. Polis said that the third shot of vaccine shouldn’t be considered a booster but rather a necessary dose to fight against COVID-19.
Bloomfield Enterprise reported:
Todd on Sunday asked whether Polis would “change the definition of fully vaccinated” in Colorado.
“That’s certainly where it’s headed, Chuck,” Polis said. “It looks like from everything that we know that to significantly reduce the risk of the omicron variant, three doses of the vaccine are needed… It’s three doses of that vaccine to be effective. So I wish they’d stop talking about it as a booster, Chuck. It really is a three-dose vaccine. And every piece of data that we’re seeing… shows that that’s the case.”
It was not clear how changing the definition of “fully vaccinated” would apply to Colorado’s current mandate that health care workers be fully vaccinated and most state employees be either fully vaccinated or submit to twice-weekly testing.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday was asked if the Brandon Regime will change the definition of “fully vaccinated” to include booster shots.
Fauci recently said it’s a matter of when, not if the regime changes the definition of fully vaccinated.
