ABC’s Martha Raddatz Scolds Americans for Not Getting Covid Booster

ABC’s Martha Raddatz Scolds Americans for Not Getting Covid Booster

Raddatz is unlikely to persuade the unboosted to take any of the 170 million doses of new, bivalent booster the Biden administration ordered.

As we enter the fourth holiday season with the covid virus still uncontained, most Americans have come to the conclusion that the vaccines did not work as advertised: The virus is still transmissible, and many politicians and celebrities who have been vaccinated and boosted still became infected with at least one of the many variants of SARS-Cov-2.

So, it is unsurprising that only 11% of Americans received the most recent “bivalent” booster. That means the other 89% just said “No.”

The loathsome Martha Raddatz,co-moderator of ABC’s This Week, decided to scold those 89% for not blindly following to the Biden administration’s desperate pleas to get the booster shots. During the show, Raddatz asked White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Ashish Jha to ask, “People aren’t listening, what do you do?”

Clearly, Raddatz has an agenda here: She wants to help push the 170 million doses of the booster that the Biden administration ordered without considering that Americans have clearly made a personal assessment that boosters are not needed.

When it comes to wasting money, the Biden administration has few peers. Earlier in the year, Team Biden re-purposed billions of dollars to buy 170 million doses of the new bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. The problem is, few people are getting the shots.

The CDC reports that just 35 million people — roughly 11% of the population and only 15% of the 227 million people who have completed the primary vaccine series and are eligible for the new booster — have taken it in the three months since it was authorized.

But instead of examining why the response is so poor, the administration is resorting to its usual solution — spend more money. White House COVID-19 response coordinator, Dr. Ashish Jha, has just announced a “six-week sprint” to convince Americans to get their updated vaccines.

…The administration says it will pilfer another $475 million from the Provider Relief Fund — meant to preserve the healthcare system by financially supporting providers who experienced lost revenues and increased expenses during the pandemic — to boost bivalent booster uptake. The program will “invest” (this administration never spends) $350 million into community health centers to raise booster awareness and expand vaccination activities. Another $125 million will go “to national organizations that serve people with disabilities and older adults to support community vaccination programs and efforts.”

The campaign will include a paid media effort targeting Americans 50 and older and those with chronic conditions with a TV ad called “Can’t Wait.”

Interestingly, Jha just indicated a significant holiday surge in covid cases was unlikely this year.

“We are in a very different place and we will remain in a different place,” Jha said, according to STAT News. “We are now at a point where I believe if you’re up to date on your vaccines, you have access to treatments … there really should be no restrictions on people’s activities. I’m pretty much living life the way I was living life in 2019.”

It appears that Raddatz has inspired exactly nobody to get the booster.

I would suggest that the Biden administration revise their assessments when ordering future booster shots, no matter what gimmick Big Pharma representatives are offering.

Then again, clearly, Raddatz is not the most effective spokesperson for the boosters, either.

I am NEVER getting a jab again. They are lying to us. Why are so many people dying?? Why are the young having heart problems why are there so many weird blood clots?? I don’t trust any of them. THEY did this to themselves for all the lies they have spewed…

    And no discussion of natural immunity….

      I did COVID last month

        If you must push another jab, how about Novavax? One wonders why Our Science-y Overlords keep pushing addictional rounds of stuff that kinda works after better stuff shows up.

        It’s like they want to have to keep giving, you know, the thing: mandating them; buying them. They’ve picked a winner, and they’re gonna stick with it. And that winner ain’t us.

    Data analysis shows 11X increase in sudden deaths in Canada
    “What was an average of 80 obituaries pre-pandemic mentioning sudden death skyrocketed to 899 in 2022. The year isn’t even over yet. Interestingly, they also determined the increases in sudden death obituaries coincide with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.”

Mind your business, sweetie.

I’m age 45, in good health, with no underlying conditions. I got the first two jabs in year 2020, but, haven’t received any boosters, since, and, won’t, going forward.

Medical treatment is a personal decision. Folks who are in higher-risk categories can rationalize getting the jabs. Others who are at lower risk can also rationalize not taking the jabs. Personally, I felt that I was better off avoiding potential side effects for what is essentially a temporary (and, quickly waning) immune system boost with unknown long-term consequences. I’d prefer to get whatever benefits arise from natural immunity, at this point.

After the vile Fraudci’s incompetent, self-serving and utterly mendacious performance as steward of the government’s indefensibly destructive and dishonestly histrionic Wuhan virus response, CDC and NIH have zero credibility on health matters, as far as I’m concerned.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to guyjones. | November 29, 2022 at 8:29 am

    I got the first two, and have refused anything further. Fortunately, I live in a part of the country that respects people, and have not been pressured or threatened.

      I am un-jabbed, and will never take another shot again. I am vaccine injured from the anthrax shot (another experimental drug) and 100% disabled thru the VA for it. I was directly threatened with being murdered in the Camp Foster Navy hospital with the COVID protocol if I was admitted with COVID. I was directly threatened with being FIRED from my civil service job and left in Japan as an illegal immigrant with no way home, no job, no nothing. I was 2 weeks away from just leaving everything I owned there and going back to the states.
      So when these assholes that keep pushing the jab get on their platform to whine and cry about why people are not getting the jab boosters, they can burn in hell for all I care. Once you get the jab, you are GMO now and a human 1.1. The risk for prion disease and amyloid clots are a high risk now. We are just in the beginning of all the health issues, including the latter part of the plandemic is the great die off. These people are pushing genocide plain and simple.

      You are fortunate. The needles probably weren’t long enough to go through yur fur.

      I got the first two. My second shot gave me 3 different reactions severe enough to report to VAERS. I’m not doing that again!

Like it or not the boosters don’t have the efficacy of a polaroid shot and only reduce severity-Once again the legacy media ignores the importance and relevance of natural immunity

    MattMusson in reply to Steven Brizel. | November 29, 2022 at 10:23 am

    But the large majority of Covid deaths are now among the Fully Vaccinated.
    The best numbers I saw say it is over 75%.

      Dathurtz in reply to MattMusson. | November 29, 2022 at 12:29 pm

      And it is interesting to see how many “unvaccinated” died with at least one covid symptom (and is therefore a covid death) with two weeks of getting vaccinated.

    There is no science behind the statement that the clot shot lessens the severity of the disease.
    It’s all
    bS

    caseoftheblues in reply to Steven Brizel. | November 29, 2022 at 2:06 pm

    Actually they do NOT reduce severity any more than they stop you from catching it or transmitting it. Just another bumper sticker phrase they repeated over and over. The ONLY thing they reliably do is make certain parties very wealthy and many who took them very sick and immune compromised going forward with other side effects to be revealed as time passes. Lord help anyone who took the things.

I didn’t have interest in taking the experimental shot right from the start and nothing has changed my mind. It’s as bad as I thought it would be.

    gospace in reply to geronl. | November 30, 2022 at 12:01 pm

    It’s actually much worse then I thought it would be. And the evidence it’s going to get even worse is piling up.

I will not post the appropriate response out of respect, not for her, but for the people here.

Back in the day a “journalist” would have done the work and reported out. Now it’s just regurgitate what ever the propaganda of the day is.

I’m 65 years old and have, as much as possible, ignored the covid fraud. All this manufactured panic has done is exposed the hypocrisy and incompetence of the so-called medical “profession”.

She looks perpetually constipated.

Dear Karen,

Please STFU and mind your own business.

Sincerely,

The American People

I don’t care what that stupid bitch says. I don’t inject experimental drugs into my body and I don’t take treatments that have only been tested on 8 mice and have no tail of safety data.

    Ironclaw in reply to Ironclaw. | November 29, 2022 at 10:30 am

    As for the rest. After all of the dishonest crap from the public health “authorities” over the past few years, I’m not the slightest bit interested in any of their “vaccines” from this point forward. From this point forward, the FDA certification is not a mark of quality, it’s a warning label.

    My2centshere in reply to Ironclaw. | November 29, 2022 at 11:44 am

    Ditto

Martha, honey, God hears all prayers, sometimes the answer is “no.”

We hear Fauci, et al., and the answer is “heck no.” After the second Moderna shot I couldn’t have so much as a cup off coffee for two days. I refuse to put society at further risk if I can’t have my morning coffee.

    henrybowman in reply to rbj1. | November 29, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    I’m on day seven of my second round of COVID. Recovering way more slowly than with my traditional reperatory illnesses, but… “I’m so happy I’m fully unvaxxed, or it could have been much worse!!”

Pretty sure pissing away another nearly half a billion dollars isn’t going to get rate above 40%.

“The loathsome Martha Raddatz” – very nicely put, Ms. Eastman!

Can’t get a booster if I never got the first shot.

Pound sand you dirty liberal hoe.

My Dr hasn’t even mentioned a booster since I got the first 2 Moderna jabs over a year ago

I did get the flu shot though.

Having had 3 strokes due to clots, no way I’m going to get any of clot producing jabs

“Raddatz asked… “People aren’t listening, what do you do?”
Two choices, Martha:
1) Continue to appear increasingly unhinged and irrelevant.
2) Shut up.

I got the shots because I wanted to travel. Got the booster this summer and it kicked my butt. Never again. I have no comorbidities. I would rather get Covid. It is not a vaccine and does nothing to protect you from me. I can still get it, and spread it. Mandating a shot is wrong. I will take my chances because the risk of death is low.

She strikes me as having the IQ of carrot.

I’m in the high risk demographic for “died suddenly” from the “vaccine” (which is NOT a vaccine but, rather, an mRNA injection – a very different thing).

I am absolutely NOT at risk from Covid.

For me, getting the “jab” is the equivalent of playing Russian Roulette – but with no payoff at all if I win.

Never much cared for radishes anyhow.

This is an ACTUAL campaign from @lapublichealth
and because they don’t allow comments to their posts, we can’t even ratio or ridicule this insanity.

I’ve mentioned elsewhere we have a very large control group of unvaccinated people here in the good ol’ USA. We could easily contaact them, check out the birth and death rate over the last 3 years and see if it changed, and test them for covid antibodies. Since drawing blood isn’t a treatment, I’m resonably certain they would acquiesce.

The Amish.

According to numbers from the “experts”- 6% of the US population hasn’t had covid. At all. I’m willing to bet at this point that number is higher among us completely unvaxxed- including the Amish.
