"You're OK. You're not going to – you're not going to get Covid if you have these vaccinations... If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the ICU unit, and you're not going to die."

According to reports, 99% of all patients currently hospitalized with Covid are unvaccinated.

But the percentage of "breakthrough" cases among the fully vaccinated is rising.

WSB-TV news anchor Fred Blankenship and his entire family contracted Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated and quarantining.

The well-liked Atlanta newsman suffered difficulty breathing and a temporary loss of taste and smell. He announced his symptoms in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

"Breakthrough positives as they are known are very real," he wrote. "I thought because I was fully vaccinated the symptoms would be mild. They were not."

However, Blankenship said despite his symptoms, his doctor told him it could've been a lot worse if he had not gotten the vaccine.

"My doctor told me the fact that I got the vaccination and stayed in relatively good shape kept me out of the hospital. It's been a big reminder that health is the true wealth."

Oprah's bestie Gayle King was spotted a week after she announced her plans to ban unvaccinated family members from her Thanksgiving gathering.

King was spotted outside the CBS studios in New York City on Monday. She wore a purple and white print frock with silver clogs.

King, who is fully vaccinated, did not wear a mask as her bodyguard and an assistant escorted her to an Uber.

Network insiders whisper that King has not been herself since the Covid lockdowns to slow the spread of the coronavirus last year.

Some of her colleagues say King needs a vacation after she told Dr. Anthony Fauci of her plans to alienate family members on CBS This Morning.

Looking nervous and exhausted, the 66-year-old news anchor said people who refuse to take coronavirus mRNA injections are a "problem" and she's taking drastic action with her own unvaccinated family members.

"I don't know how many more times you can say to people, 'Listen, it will save your life.' I have this problem with some members of my own family, which I'm now going to ban for Thanksgiving vacation. That's how strongly I'm taking what you're saying."

King previously said receiving the vaccine made her feel free because she'd spent the last year "so afraid" to leave the house.

The Nation of Islam's official Twitter account was banned on Monday, apparently for criticizing Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

NOI's Brother Abdul Qiyam Muhammad tweeted: "Unsurprisingly, Twitter,Inc. has suspended The Nation of Islam’s official account: @OfficialNOI."

NOI's Rizza Islam was targeted by the White House as one of 12 social media accounts behind 65% of the vaccine misinformation online.

Black Twitter reacted to NOI's ban on Tuesday.

One Twitter user wrote: "They used the vaccines to get to the NOI. NOI breaks no rules so they needed another way to ban them. Labeling disagreeing with the vaccines as dangerous was the perfect cover. This ain’t about those damn vaccines. White ppl don’t want them either. It was about getting the NOI."

Another user tweeted: "4 years of Donald Trump and there was no censorship. 6 months of Biden and look at this! So much for the lesser two evils."

And a third wrote: "But #WhiteSupremacists are untouched."

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set a January goal to decide whether to fully approve Pfizer's Covid-19 mRNA vaccine.

The Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine was the first to be given emergency authorization by the FDA in 2020. If approved, Pfizer's mRNA injections will be the first fully approved coronavirus vaccine in the U.S.

Full FDA approval would allow Pfizer to directly market the shots to the general public at a price yet to be determined.

Full approval would only be for people aged 18 and older because emergency approval for people under 18 only occurred in May, according to DailyMail.com.

As of Friday, more than 186.5 million vaccines have been administered in the U.S. The White House missed its goal of 70% of Americans with at least one vaccine dose.

Health experts are hopeful that full FDA approval will ease vaccine hesitancy in the Black community.

Volunteers are knocking on doors of unvaccinated Americans in urban and rural areas to urge compliance.

The FDA met with officials from Pfizer to approve a third booster shot. However, the FDA and CDC say Americans who are fully vaccinated do not need a third booster shot.

People with long Covid symptoms in the UK are participating in trials to receive monthly Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

Eight New York Yankees players tested positive for Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Shortstop Gleyber Torres tested positive for Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated, NBC News reported. Torres previously contracted the coronavirus during the offseason.

The news hit the league like a bombshell.

The Yankees canceled a game against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, after three players – Jonathan Loaisiga, Nestor Cortes Jr. and Wandy Peralta -- tested positive.

Judge, pictured left, escorted MLB legend Hank Aaron's wife Billye Aaron to the home plate on Coors Field during the MLB All-Star Game Tuesday night. She received a standing ovation.

Hank Aaron died on January 22, 2021, weeks after receiving the Covid-19 mRNA injection.

Three more Yankees players and one staff -- who were not named -- also tested positive despite being fully vaccinated.

None of the players reported any Covid-related symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing or coughing.

"Certainly unexpected," said Yankees manager Aaron Boone. "Obviously everyone, Major League Baseball, that's in charge of testing is looking into that. The variants that could be out there if that is the case."

All Major League Baseball teams require their players to be fully vaccinated in order to play.

The Yankees are undergoing additional testing and contact tracing, with the assistance of the baseball commissioner’s office and its medical experts, NBC reports.

The coronavirus affects the elderly, people with underlying medical conditions, and those with compromised immune systems, such as people with HIV/AIDS.

Wiz angered his followers last year when he ridiculed face masks.

"Y'all can have them masks fam," he wrote.

Juvenile is not happy that many of you aren't inspired by the remix of his 1999 classic "Back That Azz Up."

New Orleans rappers Juvenile and Mannie Fresh remixed their smash hit single into a catchy pop tune, titled "Vax That Thang Up."

The track is part of the White House effort to promote the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine in the Black community.

However, the public backlash was furious after the duo released the remix and the accompanying music video.

MalaniKai Massey and Shelley Wynter, co-hosts of WSB's "Word On the Street," said they were "offended" and "Disgusted" by the song.

Others are annoyed by the left's constant pandering to the Black community through rap music.

Juvenile took to social media, writing:

"TO EACH HIS OWN! Do what's best for YOU and YOUR LIFE no matter what's being said or done. Me @manniefresh @themamamiax and @meet_blk takin over for the '99 and the 2000! #vaxthattangup."

Rapper Juvenile remixed his classic 1999 song "Back That Thang Up" as part of the U.S. government's effort to vaccinate urban youth.

The music video that accompanies the new remix features Juvenile with his former Ca$H Money Records label boss Mannie Fresh. The two rappers dance with scantily clad women while urging viewers to "vax that thang up."

    Girl you looks good, won't you vax that thang up
    You’s a handsome young brother, won’t you vax that thang up
    Date in real life you need to vax that thang up
    Feeling freaky all night you need to vax that thang up

Mannie appears on screen with dozens of dancing eggplants as he raps:

    I know you can't stand it
    No holding hands chick
    But when we get the shot we gonna be romancing
    Girl you can be the queen
    After quarantine
    We can meet up at the spot and we can do the thing

Twitter reacted to Juvenile and Mannie's effort.

The White House's plan to send volunteers door-to-door to encourage vaccinations is raising concerns in Georgia and other states. Volunteers will knock on doors to encourage unvaccinated Americans to roll up their sleeves.

The White House will concentrate its effort on southern states where the vaccination rates are the lowest.

Nearly 150 million Americans have received at least one Covid-19 mRNA injection. States such as Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia have the lowest vaccination rates in the country.

Just 29% of Mississippi residents are fully vaccinated. While Alabama is a close second with 33% fully vaccinated. Georgia ranks third with 37% vaccinated against the virus that has a 99.7% survival rate.

The volunteers will focus their efforts on Georgia's inner city and rural areas where the vaccination rates are lowest.

Georgia officials raised privacy concerns and fired off a letter to the White House to discourage volunteers from going door-to-door to push vaccine compliance.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene compared the Biden administration's new "medical brown shirts" policy to Nazi-era practices.

"Biden pushing a vaccine that is NOT FDA approved shows covid is a political tool used to control people," she tweeted.

"People have a choice, they don’t need your medical brown shirts showing up at their door ordering vaccinations. You can’t force people to be part of the human experiment."

A video featuring dozens of people pleading for help after receiving the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines is going viral.

The video features men, women and children of all ages and races who took the shots for a virus with a 99.7% survival rate.

They desperately plead for help after suffering ongoing adverse affects for weeks or months.

The video features a 12-year-old girl who requires a feeding tube and is in a wheelchair after participating in the vaccine trials for children.

One woman said, "We listened, so we believed that this vaccine was the right thing to do. So, please, trust us and listen to us when we tell you that we are continuing to suffer physically."

Another woman said, "I'm speaking on behalf of my 17 year old daughter. Pfizer, New York, we need help. We need to be heard."

A third woman who didn't want her face to be shown said, "I am afraid to be shown due to the negative consequences some of my fellow sufferers have faced for speaking out. But I need help and we desperately need the medical community to hear us."

All of the vaccine recipients signed waivers acknowledging the potential side effects, including death.

Vaccine recipients can't sue pharmaceutical companies for damages for their pain and suffering.

However, none of them believed the vaccines would adversely affect them and cause anguish and pain.

Insurance doesn't cover their treatment because the vaccines are experimental and the recipients accepted the potential risks.
