Closing Thought–18Aug21

Are you fully vaccinated against the Covid-19?

I am since May…at least I thought I was fully vaccinated…..that is until I saw this bit of news…..

US experts are expected to recommend COVID-19 vaccine boosters for all Americans, regardless of age, eight months after they received their second dose of the shot, to ensure lasting protection against the coronavirus as the delta variant spreads across the country. Federal health officials have been actively looking at whether extra shots for the vaccinated would be needed as early as this fall, reviewing case numbers in the US as well as the situation in other countries such as Israel, where preliminary studies suggest the vaccine’s protection against serious illness dropped among those vaccinated in January. An announcement on the US booster recommendation was expected as soon as this week, according to two people familiar with the matter who spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

Doses would only begin to be administered widely once the Food and Drug Administration formally approves the vaccines. That action is expected for the Pfizer shot in the coming weeks. Last week, US health officials recommended boosters for some with weakened immune systems, citing their higher risk of catching the virus and evidence that the vaccines’ effectiveness waned over time. The director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins, said Sunday the US could decide in the next couple weeks whether to offer coronavirus booster shots to Americans this fall. Israel, which exclusively administered the Pfizer shot, has been offering a coronavirus booster to people over 60 who were already vaccinated more than five months ago in an effort to control its own surge in cases from the delta variant.

So does this mean that one booster is all I will need?  Or is this just an annual thing?

One last thing…..STOP using Israel as an example….they are screwing their Palestinian population with these vaccines…..they are NOT and have NEVER been a good example of anything.

Do the research to see if this ‘booster’ will be truly necessary.

Be Well….Be Safe….

  1. In Indonesia, doctors and other health workers vaccinated with SinoVac ( Chinese ) turned positive again and more than 20 doctors died. In the Philippines, the mayor and vice-mayor of Manila who were vaccinated with SinoVac last year , are now down with Corona virus. Filipinos now refuse to be vaccinated with the Chinese vaccine. Vaccination centers using Sino vac are empty, while centers with Pfiezer, Moderna have thousands and thousands trying to get in line, but thousnds more cannot be accomodated, so much so that the vicious president Duterte had announced the type of vaccine available in each center would not be announced anymore. People actually would walk -out if the vaccine available was SinoVac. Just saying. To be honest, Filipinos have never trusted SinoVac but it was the first one that was made available….

  2. We have both had two jabs, and have been told that boosters will be given in ‘late autumn’, and every year after that. That’s fine with me.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Coronavirus is related to ordinary flu in some respects so I would not be surprised if it becomes an annual requirement.

  4. Saturday I received the third dose for immunosuppressed . It had been 6 months since my 2ns dose of Moderna. As a nurse and asthmatic I was glad to get it!

      1. About how effective….when is best…..and how many will be needed…I want info not just what some high paid spokesperson says on the tube….chuq
