Democrats and left-leaning organizations love to put people in boxes. For example, if you’re black you have to be a liberal. No if’s, and’s, or but’s.
Dems don’t understand that not all groups think alike. They don’t care that there’s such a thing as autonomy; as being independent.
To the left, the thing that matters most (next to being in power) is race and how to divide people based on skin color. This story does nothing except further split a country in half.
From Free Beacon:
In New York, racial minorities are automatically eligible for scarce COVID-19 therapeutics, regardless of age or underlying conditions. In Utah, “Latinx ethnicity” counts for more points than “congestive heart failure” in a patient’s “COVID-19 risk score”—the state’s framework for allocating monoclonal antibodies. And in Minnesota, health officials have devised their own “ethical framework” that prioritizes black 18-year-olds over white 64-year-olds—even though the latter are at much higher risk of severe disease.
These schemes have sparked widespread condemnation of the state governments implementing them. However,the idea to use race to determine drug eligibility wasn’t hatched in local health departments; it came directly from the federal Food and Drug Administration.
The criteria should be medical only and race blind. https://t.co/4rvA8vA8lJ

When the FDA issued its emergency use authorizations for monoclonal antibodies and oral antivirals, it authorized them only for “high risk” patients, and issued guidance on what factors put patients at risk. One of those factors was race.
The FDA “fact sheet” for Sotrovimab, the only monoclonal antibody effective against the Omicron variant, states that “race or ethnicity” can “place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19”. The fact sheet for Paxlovid, Pfizer’s new antiviral pill, uses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s definition of “high risk”, which states that “systemic health and social inequities” have put minorities “at increased risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19.”
The guidance sheets are nonbinding and do not require clinicians to racially allocate the drugs. States have nonetheless relied on them to justify race-based triage.
Anthony Fauci is the highest-paid government employee in America. The doctor takes home more taxpayer dollars annually than even the president.
As head of diseases and infections, you’d think Fauci would be a straight man and tell the people the truth instead of regurgitating liberal propaganda.
Unfortunately, we all know how that’s going.
From The Daily Wire:
The top immunologist in the U.S. says that a fourth dose of a vaccine to battle COVID-19 and various variants that keep appearing may be needed in the near future.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease, said federal health officials are already investigating the possible need for a fourth dose for people who have had the two-shot regimen followed by a booster shot.
Fauci’s warning came after Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla also said a fourth dose may be needed, and maybe faster than Fauci’s timeline. And Fauci said a third shot is now most definitely needed for better protection.
Fauci said, “Certainly, when you want to talk about what optimal protection is, I don’t think anybody would argue that optimal protection is going to be with a third shot.”
