WATCH: CNN’s Leana Wen Claims ‘Everyone is Going to Need a Booster’ in the Months Ahead

In anticipation of the holiday season, CNN’s medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen said everyone will need a COVID booster injection in the coming months.

“I think at some point everyone is going to need a booster,” said Dr. Wen. “We are learning that immunity for the vaccines do wane over time. … Even the protection against severe disease also appears to wane.”

“At some point soon, all adults will need #covid19 booster shots. Those at the higher risk (65+, 50+ with underlying medical conditions, 6 months after initial Pfizer or Moderna, or 18+ who is 2 months after J&J) should get boosters now if they haven’t already,” Wen posted on Twitter.

The Biden administration’s vaccine mandate on private businesses with 100 employees will begin on Jan. 4, with new guidelines imposing $14,000 penalties for each violation with no limit.

“The Jan. 4 deadline also will apply to two other Biden vaccine mandates impacting federal contractors and about 17 million health care workers, with certain medical and religious exemptions. There’s a Dec. 8 compliance deadline for people employed directly by the federal government,” reports the New York Post.

“A distinct minority of Americans supported by a distinct minority of elected officials are keeping us from turning the corner,” Biden said on Sept. 9. “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us.”
