Bill Gates Pushes for Over 50s to Require COVID Booster Shots Every 6 Months

Billionaire Bill Gates is calling for all adults over the age of 50 to require COVID-19 vaccine booster shots every six months.

However, the calls from Microsoft founder Gates come after he recently caught Covid himself, despite receiving four jabs of the vaccine.

Gates made the calls during his latest appearance on CNN.

Last week, Gates, 66, revealed that he was infected with the coronavirus.

“I’ve tested positive for COVID,” Gates wrote on Twitter.

“I’m experiencing mild symptoms and am following the experts’ advice by isolating until I’m healthy again.

“I’m fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted and have access to testing and great medical care.”

Gates caught the virus despite receiving four doses of the vaccine – two original doses and two booster shots.

CNN host Anderson Cooper told Gates that he had “only gotten three shots total,” but had also been infected with COVID-19 in April.

“So I’ve been trying to figure this out for myself, but I assume you know the answer to this, so I’ll just ask you, when do you get boosted again?” Cooper asked Gates.

Gates responded, “Yeah, so an infection where you’ll get a high viral load would be like vaccination, but you know to be safe, every six months you’re probably going to be vaccinated.”

“For people who are 50 or 60, they will probably have to be boosted every six months until we get even better vaccines,” Gates said during a Friday night appearance on “AC360.”

“As we get more data, they might even make that shorter for people, you know, say 60 or over 70, where the duration seems to be a bit lower,” Gates continued.

“So we’re in for ongoing vaccination to stay absolutely safe.”

On the topic of COVID vaccine hesitancy, Gates said, “Well, the hesitancy did go down somewhat, you know, initially it was like at 60% of the population, but as they saw their friends getting vaccinated and very rare side effects, as they saw their friends being protected and the people with severe disease were overwhelmingly the unvaccinated, most people came around.”

“Now, the U.S. still has a lower full vaccination rate than many other countries, so we still need to figure out: Who do those people trust? Are they open-minded?

“Because it’s to their benefit and to the people around them,” he continued.

“So I’m surprised that the U.S., it’s been this tough, and, you know, even somewhat a political thing.”

Gates addressed the conspiracy theory that he is pushing vaccines to make a profit.

“You know, we’ve given billions for vaccines and saved millions of lives,” he stated.

“If you just kind of invert that and say, ‘No, we’re trying to make money from vaccines, you know, not trying to save lives,’ that’s a popular conspiracy theory.”

Earlier this month, Gates made headlines for admitting that COVID is “kind of like flu.”

He also conceded that the vaccines are “imperfect in two very important ways.”
