Dr. Anthony Fauci says Americans who've received at least three COVID mRNA injections may need a 4th booster shot soon.

"We may need to boost again. That's entirely conceivable," the White House's chief medical adviser, told ABC News.

The COVID Omicron variant, named after the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet, has been detected in most states since December 20. It causes mild flu-like symptoms in adults and very rare cases in children.

Fauci claimed there may be "a bit more pain suffering with hospitalizations in those areas of the country that have not been fully vaccinated or have not gotten boosters."

"You never want to be over confident when you're dealing with this virus, because it has certainly surprised us in the past," he said, before predicting another variant on the horizon.

"We've gotta be prepared for the worst case scenario. I'm not saying it's gonna happen, but we have to be prepared, which is... another variant that has characteristics that would be problematic, like a hard degree of transmissibility or a hard degree of variants."

Fauci said a fourth booster is within the realm of possibility.

"That's where we would like to be, is to have that where you don't have to get more and more always every six months with a booster, we may need to boost again, that's entirely conceivable..."

Covid-19 is a novel coronavirus that causes flu-like symptoms. People at risk of death include the elderly, immunocompromised, morbidly obese, those with pre-existing conditions, and smokers (cigarettes or marijuana).

Most people are protected from serious illness and death by their robust, God-given immune systems.

In March 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci went viral when he said blue face masks were not effective against the novel coronavirus. Face masks were designed to trap large bacteria, not a virus.

For the past two years, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended wearing blue surgical face masks or bandanas for protection against the novel coronavirus.

The CDC now claims the best protection against the mild Omicron variant are N95 masks or KN95 masks for adults and children.

N95 masks are "respirator" masks that filter 95% of airborne particles. The white masks are worn by healthcare workers, painters and factory workers to trap bacteria, dust and aerosolized paint.

However, in order to be effective, N95 masks must be fitted by another healthcare worker and it must pass an air test to ensure no air is getting in.

Officials say adults and children should wear N95 masks and eye coverings, in addition to getting three vaccines.

Worcester Medical Director and Director of Pediatric Trauma at UMass Memorial Health Dr. Michael Hirsh said, "Cloth masks and ... bandanas and homemade bandanas around their face are not effective against omicron. That is clear."

He added: "The universal precaution is now one of these better masks, eye coverings and in general, the three doses of the vaccine, your first two and then the booster. That's your basic level of protection."

White House advisor Anthony Fauci says a fourth booster shot will be necessary in the new year to combat the mild Omicron variant.

"It's conceivable that, sooner or later, that everybody will have been infected and/or vaccinated or boosted," Fauci told Axios.

"When you get to that point, unless you have a very bizarre variant come in that evades all protection — which would be unusual — then I think you could get to that point where you have this at a steady level."

Fauci also warned that airline CEOs should not consider ending the face mask policy. Major airlines are reconsidering their face mask policies amid ongoing mask-related violence aboard planes.

Patricia Cornwall was arrested Thursday by the FBI after she slapped and spat on an 80-year-old passenger who pulled his mask down to eat.

Cornwall, who also pulled her mask down, was seen on cell phone video yelling at the man to "put on your f---king mask". Passengers restrained Cornwall in the back of the plane until the Delta flight from Tampa landed in Atlanta.

Cornwall, who is still in FBI custody, had an initial hearing on Monday at the Federal Courthouse in Atlanta.

Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Advisor to the President, says Americans should ban unvaccinated family members from Christmas gatherings.

"You may have to make the tough decision not to expose yourself to that person," he said.

Fauci made the statement on MSNBC's "The Beat" on Tuesday.

"If someone in your family isn't vaccinated, should you ask them not to show up?" The MSNBC host asked Fauci.

"Yes, I would do that," Fauci replied. "I mean I think we're dealing with a serious enough situation right now that if there's an unvaccinated person, I would say 'I'm very sorry, but not this time. Maybe another time when this is all over.'"

Fauci said it's "unacceptable" that 50 million Americans refuse to get vaccinated.

Studies show vaccinated and unvaccinated people can acquire and spread the coronavirus.

A new, highly infectious Covid-19 variant in South Africa has sparked worldwide airport restrictions.

The World Health Organization has designated the new coronavirus variant B.1.1.529 and named it Omicron on Friday.

Multiple countries halted airline travel to and from South Africa on Friday.

Cases have also been reported in Botswana, Hong Kong, Israel, and Belgium.

The WHO calls Omicron a "variant of concern" because it has a large number of spike mutations and is 40% more infectious than previous variants.

The news sent Wall Street stocks plunging and the DOW dropped 900 points on Friday.

The new variant comes amid reports that health officials are "baffled" by the low incidences of Covid-19 in Africa where the vaccination rate is just 6 percent.

Pfizer announced on Friday it is testing "existing vaccines" on the new variant and results are expected within 2 weeks.

Dr. Anthony Fauci told "CNN New Day" on Friday there is "no indication" this variant is currently in the US. But Fauci claims the new variant is highest among young people in South Africa.

However, blue check marks on Twitter are suspicious of the new variant coming on the heels of Big Pharma's push for vaccine booster shots among young people.

Last week, the mainstream media reported that Dr. Anthony Fauci funded horrific experiments on adorable beagle puppies.

However, it wasn't just beagles and monkeys that Dr. Fauci's National Institutes of Health (NIH) experimented on over the years.

Now comes word that Fauci funded drug experiments on orphaned children diagnosed with the AIDS virus in New York in 2004.

The AIDS orphans story was first reported on right-wing blogs. They also were first to report the beagle puppies story.

The NIH was also caught funding experiments on AIDS orphans at a New York City hospital in 2004.

The Fauci-led NIH approved funding for experiments on hundreds of New York City orphans. Government agencies and pharmaceutical companies reportedly used the orphans in deadly AIDS drug trials.

In 2005, the city of New York hired the VERA Institute to form a final report on the drug trials. VERA was given no access to medical records for any of the children used in trials. Their report was published in 2008.

They reported that twenty-five children died during the drug studies, that an additional fifty-five children died following the studies (in foster care), and, according to Tim Ross, Director of the Child Welfare program at VERA (as of 2009), 29% of the remaining 417 children who were used in drug studies had died (out of a total 532 children that are admitted to have been used).

A worker who took care of some of the children said many of them immediately became ill and vomited after taking the drugs.

She said children who refused to take the drugs were operated on and gastric tubes were inserted into their stomachs to force feed them AZT.

The children, some as young as 1, were wards at the Incarnation Children's Center (ICC) in New York City. Their parents died of AIDS.

24 lawmakers signed a letter to Dr. Anthony Fauci who approved grants to fund horrific experiments on adorable beagle puppies.

The White Coat Waste Project, a nonprofit organization, obtained documents and photos about the experiments on beagle puppies in Bethesda, Maryland in 2016 and Tunisia, Africa in 2018 and 2019.

In one photo released by the White Coat Waste Project, two drugged beagle puppies lay on a table with their heads trapped inside mesh cages.

The cages were filled with flesh-eating sand flies that ate the dogs alive.

The dogs' vocal cords were cut so the laboratory staff could work in peace.

Purebred beagle puppies sell for $500 to $5,000 in the U.S.

The beagle puppies were used in research for anti-parasitic medications.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) does not require drugs such as anti-parasitic medications to be tested on dogs.

Dr. Fauci is a clinical associate with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the director of The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

The NIAID, led by Fauci, reportedly spent $2 million on the beagle research project.

White Coat Waste told Changing America:

"Our investigators show that Fauci's NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive. They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies."

South Carolina Congresswoman Nancy Mace wrote a letter to the NIH after learning of the investigation by the White Coat Waste Project.

Fifteen House Republicans and 9 House Democrats signed the letter asking Fauci to explain why beagle puppies were used in the heinous experiments.

Face the Nation

Dr. Anthony Fauci walked back his statements about Christmas gatherings after massive backlash on social media.

Fauci went viral over the weekend for saying it's "too soon" to consider gathering with your family for Christmas.

The Covid-19 adviser to the White House clarified that his comments were "misinterpreted" and "taken completely out of context."

In an appearance on Face the Nation on Sunday, Fauci told host Margaret Brennan that "It's too soon to tell" if Americans can celebrate Christmas.

Instead of celebrating holidays, he said the country should focus on getting Covid-19 "cases" down.

Following the uproar, Fauci told CNN on Monday, "I will be spending Christmas with my family."

"I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family. But ... the way all of the other disinformation goes around, you say something talking about a landmark of a time, and it gets misinterpreted that I'm saying you can’t spend family Christmas time, which is nonsense. You can."

Fauci's latest flip-flopping has generated more memes on social media.

Dr. Anthony Fauci went viral over the weekend for saying it's "too soon" to consider Christmas gatherings.

Fauci, 80, was suspiciously silent when former President Barack Obama partied with hundreds of unmasked guests in Martha's Vineyard in August.

However, Fauci has been very vocal about Americans giving up their individual rights and getting vaccinated or wearing masks.

In an appearance on Face the Nation on Sunday, Fauci told host Margaret Brennan that "It's too soon to tell" whether Americans can gather to celebrate Christmas.

He said the country should instead focus on getting Covid-19 "cases" down.

The Covid-19 advisor to the White House said:

"There comes a time when you do have to give up what you consider your individual right of making your own decision for the greater good of society."

Twitter's reaction was mixed, but many called Fauci a hypocrite for ignoring the Met Gala, the Emmy Awards, and Obama's "Super spreader" party in the Hamptons.

The NBA announced that it will withhold the paychecks of star players who are hesitant to get the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

Superstar Kyrie Irving, left, leads a small coalition of players, including Bradley Beal, center, and Jonathan Isaac, right, who refuse to roll up their sleeves for the injections.

"Any player who elects not to comply with local vaccination mandates will not be paid for games that he misses," NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement on Wednesday.

The multi-millionaire players plan to sit out home games in cities that have strict vaccine mandates.

The withholding of paychecks is among the Covid-19 compliance measures the NBA announced on Thursday morning.

The league plans to make life miserable for the unvaccinated holdouts.

When in their home cities, unvaccinated players will be required to remain at home. When they are on the road, they must remain in their hotel rooms, and away from large gatherings.

Unvaccinated players can practice with their vaxxed teammates, but they will be tested frequently.

About 90% of NBA players have received 2 doses of mRNA vaccine, according to reports.

However, Dr. Anthony Fauci moved the goalposts again by announcing people who received 2 shots of mRNA vaccine are no longer considered fully vaccinated.

In an interview with The Atlantic this week, Dr. Fauci said that a third booster shot is required to be fully vaccinated.

"I've made it clear that my opinion has always been that I believe that a third-shot booster for a two-dose mRNA [vaccine] should ultimately and will ultimately be the proper, complete regimen.

"The vaccine is very successful. The durability of it is something that's a subject of considerable discussion and sometimes debate... I think we should be preventing people from getting sick from COVID even if they don't wind up in the hospital."

Fauci insisted it's beneficial to have temporary protection [rather] than no protection. He made no mention of natural immunity.

Fauci and the CDC previously insisted that the mRNA vaccine would prevent the spread of the virus.

In March, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky spoke of impending doom if Spring breakers didn't get vaccines or wear masks.

Fauci now claims he is studying the "durability" of the vaccine, meaning how long the protection will last.

Studies have shown the vaccines' efficacy fades after 3-6 months and a booster will be needed at least every 6 months.

The FDA has approved emergency use of the booster shots for people age 65 and older, and those who are at high risk, including healthcare workers and people with underlying conditions.
