More On The ‘Booster’

Over this past weekend I posted on the statement from the WHO which included my original post on the “booster”……https://lobotero.com/2021/09/12/that-booster-thing-redux/

Now the Lancet, a medical journal, has issued a statement as well….

A new international review of COVID cases reaches a clear recommendation: Hold off on booster shots for the general population. The new paper in the Lancet medical journal is authored by researchers from around the world, including two outgoing FDA scientists, reports the New York Times. They found no evidence that boosters are necessary to prevent serious illness for most people, adding that even if people did receive some benefit, it would be far better to distribute the vaccines in unvaccinated parts of the world. The researchers acknowledged that boosters might be helpful for people with compromised immune systems. They also said their recommendation in regard to the general population could change if a new variant emerges, per STAT News.

For now, however, “current evidence does not … appear to show a need for boosting in the general population, in which efficacy against severe disease remains high,” the scientists write, per CNN. That two of those scientists are with the FDA “amounts to a strikingly direct rebuff to the Biden administration as it lays plans for booster shots,” writes Andrew Joseph at STAT. The pair are resigning in part because they say the White House is getting ahead of scientists on the booster plans, per the Times. The new review in the Lancet raises another objection to boosters: Any reports of side effects, even if rare, would only deepen skepticism about the shots among vaccine resisters. An FDA advisory committee meets on Friday for its own review.

This ‘booster’ thing is still unclear.

The media seems to be on-board with the ‘booster’ thing….they are pushing for the, heavy.

As I have stated many times….please consult a medical professional and do not listen to the garbage passed around by idiots and talk show hosts.

  1. Boosters are suddely back on the agenda here, and innoculations start next week. Anyone over 50 who is 6 months post ‘double-jab’, and younger people classed as ‘vulnerable’. Our government changed its mind about boosters in less than two weeks!
    Best wishes, Pete.
