Americans have heard a lot of information and details about the coronavirus vaccine.
Earlier this week, Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 immunization was pulled for causing blood clots. The healthcare community has since tried to downplay the severity of this, stating that everyone should still eagerly get their shots with no worries in the world.
The healthcare community has continued to move the goalposts regarding this virus and the necessary means to get rid of it. Most recently, the CEO of Pfizer stated that recipients will need three coronavirus shots and booster shots once per year.
The Latest Remarks from the Pfizer CEO
Albert Bourla, the CEO of Pfizer, certainly has people talking. Previously, Americans were told that just two shots of the company’s vaccine were necessary for complete immunization against COVID-19. However, this has changed.
According to Bourla, there is a “likely scenario” that will demand for individuals to get a third shot of the vaccine. Then, the Pfizer CEO declared that “annual revaccination” will likely be necessary as well. However, Bourla also made a point of noting that “variants” of coronavirus will play a significant role in all this.
JUST IN: Pfizer's CEO says third doses of coronavirus vaccine may be needed within a year of being fully vaccinated, as well as possible annual booster shots.

Finally, the Pfizer CEO explained that there’s a need to “suppress” the individuals who are more vulnerable to coronavirus than others.
Should the American Public be Skeptical?
Since the inception of coronavirus, health officials and so-called experts have habitually moved the goalposts. The guidelines of what Americans need to do to beat this virus keep shifting; so do the “experts'” recommendations on how much longer the nation should wait before fully getting back to normal.
At this point, Americans are rightfully and understandably skeptical. Some people have taken to social media, asking for the science behind the Pfizer CEO’s claim that Americans will need a third vaccine and annual booster shots.
Altho @pfizer CEO told shareholders that annual Covid boosters may be needed, there's NO data to support this. We'll learn more about the duration of vaccine-induced immunity with more data. Time and science, not shareholder considerations, will tell whether boosters are needed.

Others have suggested that there’s a push to make people sicker and more reliant upon vaccines, hence boosting business for the medical community. Additional folks also questioned whether the Pfizer vaccine is truly effective if it requires all these doses.
All in all, there are a lot of questions and very few answers.
