It would appear Sen. Dick ‘Fully Vaccinated’ Durbin (D-IL) is suffering from his third bout of COVID in one calendar year.

Before reading this story, please remember that if you claim that the COVID jabs don’t quite work as advertised, then you will be considered a promoter of misinformation and a threat to democracy by your own government. 

On Monday, Durbin tweeted, “Unfortunately, I tested positive for COVID-19 today. I’m disappointed to have to miss critical work on the Senate’s NDAA this week in Washington. Consistent with CDC guidelines, I’ll quarantine at home and follow the advice of my doctor while I work remotely.”

He also got the virus in March 2023. At that time, he said, “Thankfully, I am fully vaccinated and boosted and only experiencing minor symptoms. I will quarantine consistent with CDC guidelines and follow advice from my doctor while I continue to work remotely.”

Readers will note that back then, he was still saying he was “thankful to be fully vaccinated.” His tweet was nearly identical to the statement he issued when he had COVID in July 2022.

“This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19,” he tweeted back then. “Thankfully, I am fully vaccinated and double boosted and only experiencing minor symptoms. Consistent with CDC guidelines, I will quarantine and follow advice from my doctor while I continue to work remotely.”

So, perhaps his appreciation for the vaccine has run out on account of getting COVID again and again.

He’d have good reason to be a little miffed at his peers who encouraged him to get it. Folks like President Joe Biden told Durbin that if he received the vaccine, then he wouldn’t get COVID:

In response to the thrice-COVID-ridden Durbin, Never Back Down PAC spokesman Steve Cortes tweeted. “It’s quite amazing that Big Pharma seems to endure zero blowback from ardent supporters — even as the ‘fully vaxed and boosted’ crowd contracts Covid 3, 4, even 5 times after dutifully getting their Fauci jabs???”


We wish Durbin well in his recovery, and perhaps an annual jab will prevent his next bout of COVID … or not.
