FDA has OK'd a booster dose of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine for certain adults and people at high risk of severe illness

The FDA granted emergency use authorization for a booster dose of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine in people 65 and older, people at high risk of severe disease and people whose jobs put them at risk of infection.

"After considering the totality of the available scientific evidence and the deliberations of our advisory committee of independent, external experts, the FDA amended the EUA for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to allow for a booster dose in certain populations such as health care workers, teachers and day care staff, grocery workers and those in homeless shelters or prisons, among others," acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock said in a statement.Vaccine protection against Covid-19 wanes over time, especially for older people, CDC saysOn Friday, vaccine advisers to the agency unanimously recommended emergency use authorization for a booster dose of Pfizer's vaccine for people 65 and older and those at risk of severe disease, to be six months after they get the first two doses."The FDA considered the committee's input and conducted its own thorough review of the submitted data to reach today's decision," Dr. Peter Marks, who directs the FDA's vaccine arm, the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said in a statement."We will continue to analyze data submitted to the FDA pertaining to the use of booster doses of COVID-19 vaccines and we will make further decisions as appropriate based on the data."

Pfizer had argued that it had enough evidence that immunity starts to wane after six months and that giving a booster restores the immunity safely.Vaccine advisers to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been discussing boosters, and will meet Thursday to act on the FDA's decision. The CDC must give its stamp of approval for any booster doses to be officially given.CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices can further tweak recommendations for how any vaccine booster doses should be given.Get CNN Health's weekly newsletter Sign up here to get The Results Are In with Dr. Sanjay Gupta every Tuesday from the CNN Health team.

Company manager huang fei (communist party of China) organized the leadership of the gang of evil forces brutal persecution: surveillance location, insult,abuse, framed to take nude photos of me Oh hell no just finish others off lol 😂 wow hell no

The Irish Council for Human Rights & these experts point out that 65% of COVID deaths happened from people who had the jab. You can’t ethically, morally or legally force these unproven (long term) injections on people if you have a trickle of integrity! Even CNN has the guts to put out news that goes against the political agenda! Hats off! Still a long way to go for actual news, but credit where credit is due!


U.S. CDC advisers could vote on Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine booster on ThursdayThe CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is meeting on Sept 22-23 to discuss which Americans should get the third vaccine shot, should it be authorized for use by the Food and Drug Administration. Pfizer has asked the FDA to approve the third shot for all people aged 16 and over, but a panel of outside advisors to the FDA last Friday said there was only evidence for a shot being needed by people aged 65 and older. I hope they approve the third shot for everyone! 'Outside advisors'? Like 'outside agitators'? 10 months into roll out & boosters already needed. Good thing I trust Pfizer's integrity.

COVIDVaxExposed VeritasArmy DistributionByProxy How does my vaccination status protect you? Only if recommended by the doctors? So what's considered 'fully vaccinated '? Get in line sheep 🤡🖕💩 Can I just take the shot every day? Have diebetes no way get me dam vaccine stay home Yay! Can’t wait to see if it’ll work on a variant that will evade the vaccines.

Acosta Just scheduled mine for a date exactly 6 months after my 2nd dose. 👍 So you were fully vaccinated....until The only person I know who has gotten the 3rd shot ended up getting covid, then hospitalized, then vented, and passed away yesterday. In fact, every person I know whose been hospitalized in the last month with covid was vaccinated. Just saying.

Pfizer Study of Covid-19 Vaccine in Pregnant Women Delayed by Slow EnrollmentPfizer wanted to study its Covid-19 vaccine in pregnant women, but then the shots became widely available; “It’s hard to enthusiastically recommend the study when you’ve got a vaccine out there,” says one doctor BUT THE WhiteHouse WANTS YOU TO TAKE THE VACCINE ANYWAY with no science Here’s one you don’t read on Fake Media….A 700,000-person study from Israel two weeks ago found that those who had experienced prior infections were 27 times less likely to get a second symptomatic covid infection than those who were vaccinated. Why didn't you start this research long time ago? Why the Big Rich Med at first trying to get billions of dollars in profit and only then evaluate the vaccines' risks?

Doesn't the WHO recommend not getting one? Same with cdc? Baby world news U.S. interest rate hikes are intensifying. I think American standards will come true next year. Taping seems inevitable. Nobody cares about your fake covid pandemic anymore! It was all a hoax designed to cheat the 2020 election! Vaccines don’t prevent you from getting covid, giving covid, or dying. We have a 98.5% chance of beating covid! We’re done with all the fear mongering!

Baby world news Taiwan is expected to join CTPTT and have a briefing today. Accordingly, China is unpleasant. Acosta And also, of course, the rich.
