Microsoft co-founder and vaccine enthusiast Bill Gates said that people aged between 50 and 60 will need “ongoing vaccination” with COVID-19 “booster” injections at least “every 6 months” during an appearance on CNN with host Anderson Cooper.
After Cooper asked the liberal billionaire if he was quadruple vaxxed, to which he responded in the affirmative, Gates said “for people over, you know, 50 or 60, uh, they’ll probably have to be boosted every 6 months until we get even better vaccines.”
Cooper asked the quadruple vaxxed billionaire about his recent post-quadruple vaccination COVID-19 infection, and wondered if or when Gates was going to take another dose of the vaccine.
“When do you get boosted again?” Cooper asked Gates. “I mean, now that you’ve had [COVID-19], you know, I’ve had it around the same time. I’ve only gotten three shots total, only been boosted once. I guess we have immunity for a little while, er, but, when do you decide to get boosted again?”
“An infection where you get a high viral load would be like vaccination,” Gates said. “Uh, but you know, to be safe, every 6 months, you’re probably going to be vaccinated. As we get more data, they might even make that shorter for people, say 60 or over 70, where the duration seems to be a bit lower.”
Gates then added that “so we’re in for ongoing vaccination to stay absolutely safe.”

Gates on Twitter announced last week announced that he had been infected with COVID-19 despite being quadruple-vaccinated, Valiant News previously reported.
“I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’m experiencing mild symptoms and am following the experts’ advice by isolating until I’m healthy again,” Gates tweeted Wednesday.
“I’m fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted and have access to testing and great medical care,” Gates wrote on Twitter, disabling replies to his tweet.
