A health expert says Covid-19 will be around forever and people should "get used to" taking endless booster vaccines per year.

Australian health chief Dr. Kerry Chant said booster vaccines will be forever because the coronavirus will mutate very year just like the flu.

"We need to get used to being vaccinated with COVID vaccines for the future," she said. "I can't see COVID is not going to be with us forever."

She continued:

"As a public health doctor we always want to have diseases go, um, get totally eliminated, but that is not on the horizon in the near future. Booster doses and repeat doses will be part of it...

"I can assure you that the commonwealth government has purchased large quantities of vaccine into 2022 and this will be a regular cycle of vaccination and revaccination as we learn more about when immunity wanes."

Dr. Chant also claimed that natural immunity is not as effective as immunity conferred by the vaccines.

Australia has imposed the most restrictive covid-19 guidelines in the world via lockdowns for the unvaccinated and fines of up to $11,000.

Police reportedly shot stray dogs to prevent spreading the virus because the Covid virus, SARS-CoV-2, originated from animal reservoir and can infect numerous animal species.
