Djokovic Has NO PLANS To Get Vaccinated, Forced To Skip US Open After Wimbledon Victory

The hosts react to the United States’ requirement for international travelers to be vaccinated against COVID before entering the country, and the impact this could have on tennis player Novak Djokavic’s ability to attend the US Open next month.

According to the CDC all COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are effective at preventing COVID-19. Getting sick with COVID-19 can offer some protection from future illness, sometimes called “natural immunity,” but the level of protection people get from having COVID-19 may vary depending on how mild or severe their illness was, the time since their infection, and their age.

Getting a COVID-19 vaccination is also a safer way to build protection than getting sick with COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccination helps protect you by creating an antibody response without you having to experience sickness. Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Getting sick with COVID-19 can cause severe illness or death, and we can’t reliably predict who will have mild or severe illness. If you get sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others. You can also continue to have long-term health issues after COVID-19 infection.

While COVID-19 vaccines are effective, studies have shown some declines in vaccine effectiveness against infections over time, especially when the Delta variant was circulating widely.

Everyone ages 18 and older should get a booster shot either 6 months after their initial Pfizer or Moderna series, or 2 months after their initial Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. People ages 16–17 may get a booster dose of Pfizer at least 6 months after their initial series of vaccines.

The CDC says A person is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving all recommended doses in the primary series of their COVID-19 vaccination. A person is up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination if they have received all recommended doses in the primary series and one booster when eligible.

Getting a second booster is not necessary to be considered up to date at this time. A study by The Cleveland Clinic found that both previous infection and vaccination provide substantial protection against COVID-19. Vaccination of previously infected individuals does not provide additional protection against COVID-19 for several months, but after that provides significant protection at least against symptomatic COVID-19.

  1. Robbie finally engages critical thinking skills… too bad he mis-, dis-, and mal- informed his audience by letting the teleprompter do his thinking for him for the past 2 years.

    NICE "close the barn door after all the horses have been mandated to get an untested, no-manufacturer-liabilty, superspreader kool-aid injection JOURNALISM," Robbie. A GOOD JOURNALIST would have researched the press release claims of "safe and effective" IN REAL TIME OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS… y'know, like the PROVEN good journalist sandwiched between you and Brie. The World hopes Kim's stellar RESEARCH and JOURNALISM rubs off on you.

    Edit: My faint praise of Robbie was premature. After watching to the end, Robbie's evil twin, Libertarian Barbie, ruined it all by Barbie-splaining that it wasn't the Big Bad pHarma Wolf cuomo-culling useless eaters for billion$$$… it's the OTHER political party.

  2. WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE "Illegal Immigrants" who are FLOODING INTO the USA from the Southern Border?



    THIS IS 100% 🐎💩

  3. I kind of agree with Robby here. The reason a vaccine obsessed approach to COVID was taken is partially big pharma money. But I think this is one of those times where that took on a life of its own. I doubt Big Pharma is making that much money off people getting the vaccine in order to travel to the US.

  4. So if I'm a citizen and I haven't been vaccinated then I can enter the country, but if I'm not a citizen then I have to get vaccinated. This reminds me of those communist cards, you are a member of the party or you are not. It has nothing to do with health.

  5. I am really sick and tired of this administration. Don’t try to understand things that biden and his administration do because there is no logic there. its not about safety or good being of people in this country. How you can required being vaccinated from people coming here legally, and not required the same thing from those that coming here illegally?

  6. Why is he still so healthy and even won the one of the greatest Wimbledon tournament ? . The science of coronafauci he represents must be so perverted that it easily fool the naive masses and mostly the corrupted journalists too !.

  7. Negative tests should be sufficient. Two of my family members are missing an event in WV this coming weekend because they are now requiring all attendees over 13 be jabbed and that they verify it. Masking up or negative tests won't work. We are in a state where this hasn't been an issue for most of the last two years. I hate to see that he can't compete but I hope and pray he stays strong! No reason for him to get jabbed!

  8. Very sad that he had to skip the US open since the open borders has no need to be vaccinated only citizen's has to be vaccinated.
    You do not have to be vaccinated if you are an border crossers?

  9. Well,,,just speaks to how power works. An athlete of this stature and wealth who maybe thought he was now part of THE club is learning it is a small club and he ain't part of it. Good on him for sticking to his stance on this grift that keeps on grifting. Women should wake up to how all these new policies being brought forward are designed to put them back in the home and kept there. It is a methodical re-training process led by hyper macho males of the uber rich class. Good bad or indifferent it is in play,,,,we are going to need lots of babies soon as we are about to see a massive population drop off. Good luck to us all eh.
