U.S. to Spend Billions on New COVID Vaccines Despite Failure to Prevent Infection

funding new vaccine development

The Biden administration announced earlier this month that the U.S. government will spend at least $5 billion on Project NextGen to rapidly develop “next-generation” SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and treatments despite evidence that current COVID vaccines do not prevent infection and transmission of the new coronavirus.1

Following a similar approach to “Operation Warp Speed” initiated by the Trump administration, the Project NextGen initiative has three primary goals: to develop a nasal vaccine; to develop vaccines that provide longer protection against severe symptoms of COVID-19 disease, and to create COVID vaccines that offer broader protection from severe complications of all variants of the virus.

The new initiative comes on the heels of confirmation by public health and medical professionals that current coronavirus vaccines are not effective in preventing infection and transmission of SAR-CoV-2.

NextGen Epidemiologist Calls Current Vaccines “Good, Not Great”

Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted COVID vaccine manufacturers an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to distribute COVID vaccines in the U.S., most public health and medical professionals have consistently stated that getting vaccinated for COVID was the single-most effective way to protect oneself and others from getting infected, being hospitalized or dying from COVID disease. For example, the Pfizer/BioNTech Comirnaty messenger RNA (mRNA) COVID shot was estimated to have a more than 95 percent efficacy rate.2

Now, in light of Project NextGen, these same experts are switching gears, warning that the current vaccines have become less effective and even incapable of reducing infection and transmission—echoing observations of many who spoke out early about COVID vaccine failures and were labeled as “COVID deniers” or “anti-vaxxers.”

Michael Osterholm, PhD, MPH, an epidemiologist working on Project NextGen, considers current COVID shots to be “really good, but not great.” He strongly promoted COVID shots during the pandemic but is now citing the rushed development of the vaccine to make it available. He has confidence in the development of what he calls newer, better vaccines without the pressure of a declared public health emergency. Dr. Osterholm said:

There is a substantial amount of work (to be done) to take these good vaccines and hopefully achieve better vaccines.3

Coronavirus Vaccine Effectiveness Waning at Warp Speed

Other public health and medical professionals have also admitted there are problems with the effectiveness of current COVID shots. “While our vaccines are still very effective at preventing serious illness and death, they are less capable of reducing infections and transmission over time,” a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) said. “The infusion of a $5 billion investment, at minimum, will help catalyze scientific advancement in areas that have large public health benefits for the American people, with the goal of developing safe and effective tools for the American people.”1

White House COVID coordinator Ashish Jha, MD said at a July 2022 COVID vaccine summit:

We need vaccines that are more durable. Vaccines that offer broader and longer-lasting protection. Vaccines that can stand up to multiple variants. Vaccines that can handle whatever Mother Nature throws at us.iv

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains that current COVID vaccines can “help prevent new variants from emerging.”4

Deaths in Vaccinated Individuals Steadily Rising

In May of 2021, the CDC quickly pivoted from tracking all COVID breakthrough cases—or individuals who contracted the SARS-CoV-2 virus despite being vaccinated—to only tracking breakthrough cases that resulted in hospitalization and death. Some states also reportedly had challenges reliably tracking the burgeoning breakthrough SARS-CoV-2 infection cases.5

Of the over one million people in the United States who have been reported to have died from COVID, many received at least one COVID shot. In fact, according to health policy research organization Kaiser Family Foundation, by April 2022, an alarming six in 10 COVID deaths were among vaccinated individuals, eroding the widespread narrative that the majority of COVID deaths were among the unvaccinated.6 7

The Cost of Fast Tracking New Vaccines to Market

As of December 2022, prior to the introduction of Project NextGen which will cost taxpayers at least $5 billion, the U.S. government had spent at least $30 billion on COVID shots. Once considered unsubstantiated “misinformation,” experts, including scientists, public health experts, and politicians, are now sounding the alarm that existing COVID vaccines and therapies are ineffective and that new ones are needed.8 9

  1. Oh really? No kidding US government will spend at least $5 billion on Project NextGen. Isn’t that amazing? 👏👏(just joking).

  2. Doesn’t it seem grossly counter-productive to continue to use the term “vaccines” for an mRNA product that clearly originated in the gene-therapy fields of research? Regardless of the DNA quagmire many get buried in, its clear to anyone with common sense the mRNA jab does not fulfill any of the alleged benefits of traditional vaccines, nor was it tested to do so. If this doesn’t make sense, I suggest reading the most reliable material available on the subject so we can put a stop to this madness & hold the Govt-Pharma cartel responsible for crimes against humanity.

    We can stop it by recognizing the fraud & prosecuting those responsible:,

    There is also a list of collaborators to prosecute and convict before erasing the liability protections that melts away under the weight of massive fraud:
    Anyway, just a thought experiment worthy of your attention.

  3. A never-ending money pit. Money flowing from taxpayer pockets and into the pharma wallets. I’m sure there’s some money exchanging hands under the table for these cushy deals. Using the same taxpayers that fund their slush projects as guinea pigs. Ashish Jha is either completely clueless or completely corrupted. I chose #2. Before you can manufacture a vaccine, you must have a sample of the alleged virus. No one and I mean no one, has yet to produce an isolated sample. So what is it they is being injected in people’s arms?

  4. ‘announced earlier this month that the U.S. government will spend at least’ / Please, allow me to translate; The American citizens will be taxed an additional amount, in order to redirect said moneys to corporations and government bureaucracy which will claim to solve the current problem, while continuing to escalate the size of government bureaucracy and continue to siphon the wealth of this country, redirect that to their insider friends for the following (insert the popular topic being discussed here). I suppose the discussion regarding anyone getting fired for incompetency and corruption, or to simply let this go as a failed policy, such a conversation is simply off the table. Oh I see, thank you for informing me how my money will be spent.
    Uncle Sam! Who can take your money? With a twinkle in their eye. Take it all away and give it to some other guy. The government. The government can. Who can tax the sunrise. Who can tax the trees. Let you run a business and collect up all the fees. The government. Oh the government can. Oh the government can, cause they mix it up with lies and make it all taste good. The government takes everything we make to pay for all of their solutions. Health care, climate change, pollution. Throw away the constitution. Who can give a bail out, tell us to behave. Make the founding fathers roll over in their grave. The government. Oh the government can. Oh the government can, they mix it up with lies and makes it all taste good. The government takes everything we make, they’re power hungry and malicious. Their economics are fictitious. Soon we’ll have to eat our dishes. Who can be a failure in so many ways. Instead of getting fired, hey, we’ll give ourselves a raise. The government. Oh the government can. Your uncle sam can cause he mixes it with lies and makes it all taste good. And it feels so good cause the government says I should!

  5. Sure…let’s dump even more taxpayer money into more untested, ineffective, & dangerous gene therapies even though most of us now have natural immunity to COVID. The government should be promoting preventive strategies, like making sure Vit. D3 blood levels are above 50ng/ml, weight management, exercise, healthy sleep habits, & healthy diets that include much less sugar, much less processed food, & more, preferably organic, REAL food. After all, it’s our immune systems that prevent & fight disease, not pharmaceuticals!

    1. Very much agreed. Pharmaceutical products aren’t meant to heal our bodies. They’re very loaded with harmful ingredients. Let food be thy medicine. Didn’t they forget Hippocrates oath?? 🤷‍♀️

  6. Thank you for your hard work NVIC. And for staying the course for so long. America and especially American parents were much better prepared to question the COVID pandemic because of your efforts.
