With the fall season approaching, Americans and health officials are bracing for the flu season. As COVID-19 still spreads throughout the country and new variants emerge, the Biden administration continues to ask for more funding while Dr. Anthony Fauci announced his retirement. Not to mention, the Biden administration stopped its COVID-19 test giveaway  due to a lack of funding. Now, it seems that the White House is encouraging Americans to get both the COVID-19 and flu shots at the same time.
The suggestion was such a great idea that the White House COVID-19 coordinator claimed it was one of the reasons God gave humans two arms.
While it might take a moment to digest that last sentence, on Tuesday, Ashish Jha, the COVID-19 coordinator for the White House, made the outlandish claim that he expected millions of people two get both the COVID-19 and flu shot at the same time due to students returning to school. In the video below, he said, “The good news is you can get both your flu shot and COVID shot at the same time. It’s actually a good idea. I really believe this is why God gave us two arms: one for the flu shot and the other one for the COVID shot.”
And not missing a beat, Ashish Jha recommended people 12 and older get their COVID-19 shot. “Now, here a couple of caveats because there are always a few caveats. If you got a recent infection or were recently vaccinated, it’s reasonable to wait a few months.”
At the end of July, Joe Biden held a press conference  to speak on the importance of getting the COVID-19 jab and how many deaths stemmed from those who didn’t receive the jab. “Every person age five and over should get a booster shot. If you’re over 50 years old, you should get two booster shots. I did. And if you have your boosters — one, if you are under 50; two, if you are over 50 — your odds of getting severely ill from COVID are very, very low. Even older Americans are very unlikely to get severe COVID if they have two booster shots. Most COVID deaths are among those who are not up to date on their shots — their COVID vaccinations.”
The President also targeted former President Donald Trump, suggesting, “When my predecessor got COVID, he had to get helicoptered to Walter Reed Medical Center. He was severely ill. Thankfully, he recovered. When I got COVID, I worked from upstairs of the White House — in the offices upstairs — and — for the — that five-day period. The difference is vaccinations, of course, but also three new tools free to all and widely available. You don’t need to be a President to get these tools used for your defense. In fact, the same booster shots, the same at-home test, the same treatment that I got is available to you.”
