The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted full approval to Pfizer-BioNTech for its Covid-19 messenger RNA vaccine.

Health officials hope the full FDA approval will ease vaccine hesitancy in the Black community. The vaccination rate in the Black community is the lowest among ethnic groups in America.

Pfizer can now market its vaccine directly to Black consumers under the brand name Comirnaty. It isn't clear if Pfizer will begin charging consumers for booster shots.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) approved a third booster shot for immunocompromised people, such as cancer patients, transplant patients, and people who autoimmune disorders.

The FDA approval may lead to more vaccine mandates in blue states where businesses are urged to ban the unvaccinated.

"The FDA's approval of this vaccine is a milestone as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic," acting FDA commissioner Dr Janet Woodcock said in a statement on Monday.

"While this and other vaccines have met the FDA's rigorous, scientific standards for emergency use authorization, as the first FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine, the public can be very confident that this vaccine meets the high standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality the FDA requires of an approved product. Today's milestone puts us one step closer to altering the course of this pandemic in the U.S."

Prior to Monday, Pfizer's vaccine was only available on an emergency basis. Pfizer said the shot is still available to 12-15-year-olds on an emergency authorization basis.

Question: Do you plan to take the shot now that it's fully approved?

The Rev. Jesse Jackson and his wife, Jacqueline, were hospitalized in Chicago after testing positive for Covid-19.

Both Jackson, 79, and his wife Jacqueline, 77, received Covid-19 mRNA vaccines in January, and are fully vaccinated.

They join millions of people who tested positive or fell ill with Covid-19 after receiving the vaccines. A small percentage of those people required hospitalization or died.
 
DOES THE VACCINE CAUSE COVID TO MUTATE?
 
Researchers say the vaccines do not cause the Covid-19 virus to mutate into variants.

In July, the CDC released alarming data that shows around 35,000 vaccinated people reported symptoms from Delta variant infections each week.

The list of celebrities, athletes, and lawmakers who contracted the Delta variant after receiving the vaccines is growing longer by the day.

    The so-called "breakthrough cases" are worrisome to researchers. Breakthrough infections caused by the less lethal but highly contagious Delta variant signaled to the CDC that "The war has changed."

    Some merchants and retailers have banned fully vaccinated people from their stores due to fears that they are "shedding" the virus and infecting the unvaccinated.
     
    HOW THE mRNA VACCINE WORKS
     
    The messenger RNA vaccine works by instructing your immune cells to produce spike proteins that would normally be produced by the Covid-19 virus.

    Ideally, vaccine-induced spike proteins cause an immune response that hunts and destroys the virus.

    However, Covid-19 also has spike proteins -- those red spikes that you see on the surface of the virus in this illustration.

    Covid uses its spike proteins to latch onto ACE2 receptors to enter human cells and cause infections.

    Our God-given immune system blocks Covid's spikes from attaching to ACE2 receptors, thus preventing infections.

    Natural immunity last longer than man-made antibodies, which, according to the CDC, only last 6-8 months before wearing off.

    Studies show spike proteins harm cells by causing inflammation and vascular endothelial damage. There have been multiple reports of blood clots and cardiac inflammation, particularly in teenagers.

    The CDC and World Health Organization received extensive safety data from vaccine makers Pfizer and Moderna that shows millions of doses given with no significant side effects.

    Pfizer and Moderna insists their vaccine-induced spike proteins do not cause harm because the vaccine is administered in the deltoid (arm) muscle where the muscle cells take up the mRNA to produce spike proteins.

    Health experts downplay reports that vaccine-induced spike proteins cause blood clots in the heart, lungs or blood vessels.

    According to the CDC about 49% of Americans are fully vaccinated. 60% of Americans have received at least one vaccine dose.

    This bilingual celebrity is reportedly so sick after taking an experimental "vaccine", that she was forced to back out of a hosting gig for an upcoming star-studded music festival.

    She was rushed to the emergency room on more than one occasion in recent days due to the debilitating side effects of the drug.

    During one of those visits, the celeb was stunned to learn she was eating for two. Sources say she's now worried that she might lose her unborn baby due to the nanotechnology contained in the still experimental injections (she's fully vaccinated).

    The star's husband is dead set against taking the spike protein shots, but she took the shots "for work."

    The star has consulted specialists all over the country. She wants to know if the shots can affect her unborn baby. The specialists didn't reassure her.

    More importantly, she's concerned about her health because she can't shake her flu-like symptoms.

    She recently took to Twitter to ask for prayers but has since deleted the tweet.

    Jason Bryan Maurer passed away unexpectedly six days after receiving his second Covid-19 mRNA injection.

    The 45-year-old barber received his first dose on April 2. He took to Facebook the same day to announce he expected side effects from the spike protein injection.

    "After having COVID-19 I know my T-Cells need help. Dr. Fauci says yes the first shot is rough," he wrote.

    Maurer, who was reportedly HIV-positive and tested positive for Covid-19, was praised by his followers.

    One Facebook follower wrote: "girl u gonna get sick as hell for a couple of days, we all did."

    On May 3, Maurer wrote:

    "You don't want to get the Covid vaccine because it was done in less than a year? Wow we have lost so many people in the AIDS pandemic and we still don't have a vaccine for that. We do have PREP, but no real vaccine. Shut the hell up and get your Covid vaccine!"

    Later, Maurer registered for the Ohio "Vax-A-Million" lottery that gives Ohio vaccine recipients a chance to win a million dollars.

    He took to Facebook on May 18, writing, "I am registered for the lottery!!!!"

    One of his final Facebook posts mocked Christians and featured a Bible verse with a man waving a rainbow colored flag.

    Maurer passed away on June 5.

    Joe Biden used the woke term "LatinX" while referring to every Latino and Hispanic American as immigrants.

    boy gif The 46th U.S. president made the comment while discussing low vaccination rates among minority groups, including Blacks and Hispanics, during a speech in North Carolina on Thursday.

    In addition to touring a mobile vaccination unit, Biden spoke to a mixed crowd of Blacks and Latinos at the Green Road Community Center.

    Biden claimed Latinos and Hispanics didn't want to take the experimental spike protein injections because they feared being deported.

    Biden said:

    "There's a reason why it was harder to get African Americans -- initially -- to get vaccinated, because they're used to being experimented on. Tuskegee airmen and others, people have long memories. It's awful hard as well to get Latinx vaccinated, Why? They're worried they'll be vaccinated and deported."

    The response on social media was outrage, particularly among Hispanic and Latino Americans who object to being referred to as immigrants or "LatinX."

    One Twitter user wrote:

    "This is just an outrageous statement from President Biden. Latinos don't like to be called 'Latinx,' and you're racist to assume that they're all illegal immigrants."

    Another user wrote:

    "Joe Biden claiming Latinos don't want to get vaccinated because they’re worried about getting deported is about as racist as it gets. Par for the course for old racist Joe Biden."

    A third user tweeted:

    "Biden literally said getting Latinx vaccinated is difficult because they think they will be deported if they go in for the vaccine Seems pretty racist to me to imply all 'Latinx' are illegal immigrants. If Trump made that statement yall would be furious!"

    And someone else tweeted:

    "Now we know who the real racist president is Biden Goes Woke, Calls Latinos 'LatinX' and Assumes They Are All Illegal Aliens."

    The World Health Organization (WHO) is advising against administering Covid-19 experimental spike protein injections to children.

    The Who issued a new directive on its website saying "children should not be vaccinated" with the experimental shots:

    Children should not be vaccinated for the moment.

    There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

    Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults.

    However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.

    That is not good news for vaccine manufacturers who stand to lose billions of dollars if they can't get their vaccines into the arms of babies and children.

    The WHO made its recommendation after hundreds of fully vaccinated teenage boys were diagnosed with heart inflammation, such as myocarditis and pericarditis.

    More children have died from the Covid spike protein shots than all of the childhood vaccine-related fatalities over the last 20 years.

    British Airways confirmed four fully vaccinated pilots died within a month after receiving the Covid-19 spike protein gene therapy injections.

    However, British Airways claims the experimental injections had nothing to do with their untimely deaths.

    According to Facebook posts, the four pilots were in their 40s and 50s and in good health.

    An audio recording of a male who spoke to a "friend who's a BA pilot" explains "things are getting crazy" after three fellow pilots passed away.

    The man stated BA pilots are fearful after receiving the shots.

    The audio recordings have been marked as "false" on Instagram.com (listen here).

    Someone tweeted an image that showed four framed photos of the pilots and condolence books on a desk. The photos and condolence books have been confirmed by British Airways as authentic.

    "The spokesperson, however, confirmed the authenticity of the four condolence books, as four company pilots had recently passed away. 'Our thoughts are with their family and friends,' they said, adding that none of the deaths was linked to vaccines." (Reuters)

    Reuters news agency published a statement from British Airways denying reports that the airline is in "crisis talks" with the British government after forcing all of its pilots to take the injections.

    (See the statement here)

    Health organizations, such as the CDC, labeled gunshot wounds and car accidents as Covid-related last year, However, they vigorously deny any deaths related to the mRNA vaccines.
