"If the jab doesn't work, keep forcing it until it does work!!!," one angry Twitter user ranted on November 16, 2021. That reaction came in response to the news that the Biden administration was planning to drastically boost its efforts to push booster jabs of the Covid-19 vaccine. To further highlight the need for such jabs, Dr. Anthony Fauci also noted that the government may change its definition of "fully vaccinated".

The backlash is part of a long-running campaign by anti-vaxxers, who vehemently insist that the vaccines aren't safe or effective, despite all the evidence to the contrary. The fightback is being led by Texas and Florida, where Governors Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis have engaged in a constant game of chess with the Biden administration's orders on Covid-19. So far, vaccine mandates have been imposed on the military, federal employees, and large employers, but with mixed results.

Vaccines have been mandatory for years, so why the drama over Covid-19?

 Despite a large number of Americans not getting their first or second jab, the federal government is going ahead with plans for the third, which have so far faced numerous setbacks. The latest being from the FDA and CDC. Initially, the two bodies rejected boosters for all, but are now set to do a u-turn, leading many to worry that booster jabs could now become mandatory.

Fauci backs mandatory boosters

Speaking to Axios on November 16, Fauci backed the mandate of booster jabs. "In my opinion, boosters are ultimately going to become a part of the standard regimen and not just a bonus," he said. The disease expert added, "I believe it's extremely important for people to get boosters, and I am hoping very soon we will see a situation where there won't be any confusion about who should and should not get boosters."

Those comments came in light of the news that the booster shot would be authorized for more Americans. Currently, only those 65 and older, or severely immunocompromised are required to get the booster as per the CDC. But, expansion is almost certainly on the cards because "as every month goes by, the immunity wanes more and more." Some states, like New York and California, have bypassed the FDA and CDC to authorize booster jabs for all adults, putting further pressure on the federal administration to do the same.

Sources say the FDA could do a u-turn and authorize boosters for all adults as early as Thursday, November 18. At the moment, science backs booster jabs, with the number of breakthrough Covid-19 cases increasing over the past few months. So the Biden administration is undoubtedly keen to mandate booster jabs to avoid restrictions and lockdowns during the holiday season.

Net furious, slams coming mandate

At the moment, Fauci's words are the only indication that vaccine mandates would expand to booster jabs. Nonetheless, the internet has taken it seriously, with anti-vaxxers furious about the coming change. "There will never be only one more..." one user warned, with a cartoon to further reiterate their point. Another tweeted, "First it’s a vaccine mandate, then it’s gonna be a booster shots mandate, and next it’ll be whatever drug they choose to mandate because you complied with the first....This is how they will imprison people of a free nation."



"I can’t believe the vaccine mandate didn’t get rid of Covid or protect those that are vaxxed from covid. Just like I was shocked the mask mandates didn’t help with Covid or protect those that wore them from Covid. But hey, maybe this mandatory booster will!!" one user commented. Another said, "So I hear the Biden regime is looking to change the definition of “fully Vaccinated” to, only include, those who have received booster shots. This is insane!!"  One person tweeted, "Fact Check: TRUE. You are never "fully vaccinated" because there always will be another "booster" shot that will be required. Once you let the vaccine mandate's "nose under the tent," you have lost your FREEDOM, forever."





At the moment, only 15.7% of Americans have received a booster jab, as opposed to 58% who have been "fully jabbed", i.e. received two doses. It should be noted that so far, the Biden administration has not commented if it will mandate the booster jab, it's merely a rumor.
