Montpelier, Vt. — Governor Phil Scott today directed the Agency of Human Services to implement a Universal Booster Program for COVID-19 vaccinations and is strongly encouraging every Vermonter over the age of 18 to get a booster.

Anyone who has received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is eligible two months after their first dose. Individuals who received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine are eligible six months after completing their initial vaccination.

Vermont data shows boosters are already working to keep cases among the vulnerable populations lower, which can decrease pressure on local hospitals. About 50% of Vermonters over the age of 65 have received a booster.

“Over the last 30 days, in a time of increasing cases in the low-risk age groups, we’ve seen cases in those 65 and older decline by about 2.5%. This is evidence that boosters are working to both keep cases lower in the at-risk age groups and, by further protecting the most at risk, they reduce hospitalizations,” said Governor Scott said. “At this point, we need to shift to getting everyone boosted to help reduce the disruption of higher cases and minimize transmission to at-risk Vermonters, particularly through the winter months.”

To make getting boosted easier, the Governor said online registration will be simplified, and walk-ins are welcome at state-run vaccination clinics.
The Governor said the Agency of Human Services and the Agency of Digital Services will remove the longer list of criteria for boosters on the state’s registration website and will implement a simplified registration process.

“We want to be clear: Everyone over age 18 should get a booster as soon as possible. If it has been six months since you received your Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two months since your Johnson and Johnson vaccine, please make registering for a booster a priority,” Governor Scott added. “This will be the most important step you can take to help us get through this winter flu season and continue moving forward from pandemic to endemic.”

Vermonters can register for booster doses at healthvermont.gov/myvaccine or by calling 855-722-7878.

  1. I met a man at a place of business who screamed at me for not wearing a mask, he said you are putting me in danger, tho he was wearing a mask. I told him well you are wearing a mask what are you afraid of?? He looked shocked and said “I had 3 shots have you ” loud enough so everyone could hear.. I said NO. it is my right to not have the Jab and I was told I didn’t have to;;;. he said who gave you that right? I looked at him and said loud so all could hear ” GOD ” he is my boss.!! He didn’t say anything and I turned and walked away. I heard he ended up in the hospital with Covid. so much for the shots.
    They are now talking about giving infants the shots. As soon as they are born.. ARE THEY STUPID?

    Politicians and Drs are lying about Covid. and making money on Covid. I refuse to be a follower. I have a mind of my own. Yes covid is a disease. but not as bad as Fauci claims. There are Drs who have come forward and spoke about Covid, that it wasn’t all true and they were shut up.
    I look at it this way If the Good Lord wants me he will take me, the Devil won’t take me as he has a restraining order against me. he’s afraid I will take over hell…lol
    Seriously, if someone wants to wear a mask and have the shot it’s your right. just don’t bully me about it.. I am a free US American Citizen who thinks for herself and I am a Republican and a real Vermonter ( 8th generation) not a liberal out of stater.

  2. Now is the time to stop participating in a narrative, and start observing what is really happening around you!
    If you do not understand what is really going on, know it is real and happening now, but you must step outside the prevailing narrative to see it.
    Do not remain shackled to a legislative process when so much is at stake.

    And don’t look for guidance from Governor Scott or Dr. Lavine, they are captured by the actions they have already taken, to follow them any further is to only keep digging the hole they are vested in.

    As the administrations campaign to vaccinate Vermont children ages five to eleven rages on, our Governor is willing to compromise on mask restrictions but only through a process of legislation, our children don’t have time for these kinds of games when it is highly likely we are dealing with a Bio Weapon.

    I have been communicating for almost two weeks with my Senators and Representatives, trying to get them to step outside their comfort zone and call for a moratorium on vaccinating any more children. quite frankly I don’t know if I am making any progress, but I will continue to try!

    • May I remind you of my first post to this article!

      I am Constantly reminded of the authoritarian State we have become!

      I was greeted this morning once again by recognizing, Vermonters are living in an authoritarian society for yet another day. My first encounter was a quote by Representative Butch Shaw from Pittsford, as stated in this morning’s Rutland Herald.

      “Let’s do the right thing.” ” We can do it if we get vaccinated, get our boosters and wear a mask.”

      Then later at noon, Governor Scott, a man who cannot seem to hold the line on anything he says, suddenly wants to compromise. Thus, relenting to demands of a fearful legislature seeking emergency masking restrictions. He says it is in the name of compromise, but what and who is he compromising yet again?

      These are just two examples of those who write the arbitrary definitions of pandemic, capturing the authority they define!

      When fear of a pandemic is all it takes to hide a Bio Weapon, what could go wrong?

  3. The nation is watching. It will be interesting to see if Vermont’s push for more “vaccinations” will continue to drive up the number of “cases”. And if so; will the State continue with it’s push for more and more jabs?

    This isn’t some kind of table top exercise, we’re talking about hundreds of thousands of people’s health and lives being comprised. It’s shocking the number of people who after getting “vaccinated “ are being hospitalized for covid symptoms.

  4. Yeah, I’m not getting the initial shot let alone a booster and I’m not going to change my mind. Why do they want to get rid of the control group anyways? They falsified the trials- if the Pfizer whistle blower is to be believed which already botched the trial’s control group.

  5. So. while it is statistically obvious that the “vaccinations” are driving the number of “cases’ the governor say….more shots. The level of stupidity from the Vermont State government is astounding! UNBELIEVABLE.

  6. One more step through the fog toward the cliff.

    How can you be “fully vaccinated” if you already need a booster? And when the booster wears off, what? Another shot, and then another? What a great business model for the vaccine manufacturers–make people dependent on injections so they basically have to sign up for lifetime subscription service. This isn’t going to end well. The ICUs filling up with heart attack and stroke victims is no coincidence.

  7. If the need for a booster shot is the result of the declining efficacy of vaccines, typically declining significantly within six months or so, how many more six month cycle boosters will Vermonters be asked to consider?

    If officials recommend continuing boosters and flu shots at this rate, we could be talking about dozens of injections over a few year’s time. This isn’t what we see with DPT vaccines, polio vaccines, smallpox vaccines, or measle vaccines – diseases far more dangerous than Covid.

    And how might these cyclical injections affect the long-term development of our children’s natural immune system?

  8. Gilbraltar is the most Covid-vaccinated place on earth. Deaths from Covid are soaring.

    Maybe the narrative of “the vaccines will save us” is wrong? Maybe the people who advocated for early treatment were right? Maybe “pandemic of the unvaccinated” is just evasion?

    What sort of real, solid, rigorous due diligence did our Vermont health authorities do before they dismissed ivermectin? Go ahead, spell it out for us, tell us all how careful and scientific and data-driven you were when you dismissed a completely safe drug that many doctors say works wonders in treating Covid-19.

    • Gibraltar cancelled Christmas due to rise in Covid cases. Because, you see, the vaccines are nearly 100% effective, just as Fauci told us.

      • Right!? There are many individuals, early on, who died from remdesivir and ventilators which helped push the fear propaganda. Italy recently decreased their Covid deaths by around 100k just from changing their definition from “died with Covid” to “died from Covid”
