Health officials now think some Americans may need booster vaccines
The Biden administration is considering booster shots for the elderly and immunocompromised
“The federal government is exercising an option in its contract with Pfizer to purchase 200 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to be delivered between fall 2021 and spring 2022 to prepare for future vaccination needs, including vaccines for children under 12 and possible booster shots if studies show they are necessary,” an official told
CNN, adding that Pfizer will also “provide the US with 65 million pediatric doses should its vaccine be approved for kids under 12, including doses available immediately upon authorization.”While vaccines for children are likely to happen, officials are less certain boosters will be needed. “The goal of this vaccine is not to prevent mild or low, moderate infectious disease,” said Dr. Paul A. Offit, who sits on the Food and Drug Administration’s outside advisory committee of vaccine experts. “The goal is to prevent hospitalization to death. Right now this vaccine has held up to that.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci also tried to quell fears about vaccines losing their effectiveness during a congressional hearing this week. “We don’t want people to believe that when you’re talking about boosters, that means that the vaccines are not effective,” Fauci said. “They are highly effective.” headtopics.comRead more: Rolling Stone »

Like the yearly flu shot? What most Americans need is a fucking gym membership and a diet. It is inevitable. With multiple variants and a limited time of strong immunity, there would almost always need to be future booster shots. Early critics of the mRNA vaccine program predicted this failure and already knew the vax would produce the variants. But don't let that stop us, let's get to help double down on the stupidity.
I’m neither but would take a booster today if it were offered.
