FirstHealth of the Carolinas will offer Pfizer booster shots to eligible members of the public at clinics scheduled for October.

Appointments will be required, and the doses will be administered at the Fair Barn in Pinehurst, the same location where thousands received their first and second doses during Operation FirstShot efforts in the spring of 2021.

Clinics at the Fair Barn are scheduled for Oct. 12 and Oct. 19.

“We know that many people in our community have been looking forward to the day they could receive a booster shot, and we are thrilled to be able to offer even more protection against COVID-19,” FirstHealth CEO Mickey Foster said.

“Throughout the last several months, it has become crystal clear that vaccines are highly effective and prevent the worst outcomes from this virus.”

COVID-19 vaccine booster shots are available for the following Pfizer vaccine recipients who completed their initial series at least 6 months ago:

• 65 years and older

• 18+ who have underlying medical conditions

• 18+ who work in high-risk settings

• 18+ who live in high-risk settings

Visit the CDC’s eligibility page for detailed information about who is eligible to receive a booster.

Watch all Veritas segments in Pfizer. One Pfizer scientist openly admits the company runs on Covid money, calls his employer an evil company. Watch it if you can handle the truth.

“Pfizer Whistleblower Leaks Execs Emails: ‘We Want to Avoid Having Info on Fetal Cells Out There'.” Project Veritas exposes what many suspected: Pfizer used cells from aborted babies to make their shot. Another reason to avoid it.

"Project Veritas is an American far-right activist group founded by James O'Keefe in 2010. The group produces deceptively edited videos of its undercover operations, which use secret recordings in an effort to discredit mainstream media organizations and progressive groups. Project Veritas also uses entrapment to generate bad publicity for its targets, and has propagated disinformation and conspiracy theories in its videos and operations."

No wonder Kent likes it so much.

Clearly you have not watched the interview with a 10-year Pfizer employee, a Quality Auditor, who openly speaks to O’Keefe amd shows the internal correspondence on how Pfizer is hiding this from the public. Slandering the messenger does not alter the truth, Jim, it only confirms your support of the murder of unborn babies and use of their tissue by Pharma companies.
