That “Booster” Thing–Redux

AS we continue to try and fight the pandemic that is gripping this country and the continuous news reporting on the progress the attempts to save the nation from a total meltdown…..and now the ‘booster’ thing is making its rounds in the MSM….they seem to be pushing the early idea that we all may need a ‘booster’ to prevent onset of illness.

When the idea of a ‘booster’ was floated in the media I tried to inform my readers on just what they idea was all about…

What Is This ‘Booster” Thing?

It appears to be a popular news story these days…..

WHO has not been as thrilled with the idea as the media…..

The World Health Organization is calling for a halt on COVID-19 vaccine boosters until at least the end of September, its head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday, as the gap between vaccinations in wealthy and poor countries widens.

The call for a moratorium is the strongest statement yet from the UN agency at a time when countries deliberate the need for boosters to combat the fast-spreading Delta variant of the coronavirus.

“I understand the concern of all governments to protect their people from the Delta variant. But we cannot accept countries that have already used most of the global supply of vaccines using even more of it,” Tedros added.

High-income countries administered around 50 doses for every 100 people in May, and that number has since doubled, according to WHO. Low-income countries have only been able to administer 1.5 doses for every 100 people, due to lack of supply.

To counter the spread of the Delta variant, some countries have begun to use or started weighing on the need for booster doses even as scientists debate over whether or not extra shots are needed.

“The fact that we are vaccinating healthy adults with a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccines is a short-sighted way of thinking,” said Elin Hoffmann Dahl, infectious diseases medical adviser to Medecins Sans Frontieres’ access campaign.

I will get the booster if it is necessary to prevent me from getting the Covid….but before I make my final decision I will do what I do best….research…..something I believe everyone should before they make any medical decision.

  1. Big changes here this weekend. Vaccine Passports for events and nightclubs in England have been scrapped, and booster jabs will only be for ‘the vulnerable’ for now.
    Best wishes, Pete.
