Martha Raddatz interviews Dr. Anthony Fauci on “This Week.”Bloomberg via Getty Images, FILERecipients of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine should not be concerned about the shot's lower efficacy now that boosters have been recommended, White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci told ABC “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz.
"I think that they should feel good about it because what the advisers to the FDA felt is that given the data that they saw, very likely this should have been a two-dose vaccine to begin with," he said Sunday.The FDA vaccine advisory panel unanimously recommended booster shots for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine Friday. The panel recommended all J&J recipients 18 years and older to get an additional jab as early as two months after the first dose -- key differences from their recommendations for the Moderna and Pfizer boosters which were only for Americans 65 and older or in higher risk groups.

The data, which is not yet peer reviewed, also found that for J&J recipients, antibody levels were higher if they received a Moderna or Pfizer booster rather than a J&J booster. headtopics.com
Raddatz pressed Fauci on whether mixing and matching vaccine boosters for J&J recipients would be a better idea.“But, Dr. Fauci, the panel was also looking at new data that suggest J&J recipients may be better off getting a booster shot from the more effective Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Is that a better solution?" Raddatz asked.
“That is true, the data you refer to, that if you boost people who have originally received J&J with either Moderna or Pfizer, the level of antibodies that you induce in them is much higher than if you boost them with the original J&J,” Fauci said.

But the data of boosting the J&J first dose with a J&J second dose is based on clinical data. So what’s going to happen is that the FDA is going to look at all those data, look at the comparison and make a determination of what they will authorize.”
Fauci added that the FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will give people the flexibility to mix and match vaccine boosters based on their individual health situations.Now that the FDA has recommended J&J boosters for a wider group of Americans, the question turns to when Moderna and Pfizer boosters will be expanded to the general public. headtopics.com
Fauci said that will depend on the data being collected by the CDC and the findings coming in from Israel, which is about a month ahead of the U.S. in its vaccine rollout.As for vaccines for children ages 5-11, Fauci said the FDA is on track to approve the Pfizer vaccine in early November.
With kids eager to go trick-or-treating and the holidays right around the corner, Raddatz also asked Fauci about his guidance for celebrating the upcoming holidays. Read more: ABC News »

Fauci: J&J vaccine 'should have been a two-dose vaccine'Fauci said FDA panel's recommendation shows J&J vaccine 'should have been a two-dose vaccine to begin with' 7 terms served ☝🏼 Fauci说，FDA小组的建议显示强生疫苗“从一开始就应该是两剂疫苗” Thanks for telling people now. But shouldn't there have been a more objective presentation earlier of Janssen's efficacy of 66.1% instead of promoting its higher US only efficacy, as Fauci did, or its higher efficacies against severe disease or hospitalization, as Fauci also did.
ThisWeekABC And after the booster, another shot too Dr Fauci because of low efficacy? You guys are on a fishing expedition. Just tell the truth. There is no absolute certainty in what scientists are doing. Trial and error real time MarthaRaddatz Abortion is not enough! So now kill the children that is outside the womd

Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Why Joe Rogan and I sat down and talked -- for more than 3 hoursIn today's highly segmented media world, most of the people who watch and listen to me every day on CNN have already received and accepted the message about the utility of vaccines, the importance of masks and how we can all work together to put an end to this pandemic. So I realized that if I was serious about trying to communicate public health, I needed to go to a less comfortable place. I needed to go into the lion's den and accept an invitation to sit down with Joe Rogan for more than three hours. Ivermectin is horse paste He learned that people trust Rogan more then CNN and for a good reason. This is what you do….
