The following article, World Health Organization Says No Need for COVID Booster Shots at This Time, was first published on Flag And Cross.
According to Reuters, the World Health Organization (WHO) has determined that there is no need for coronavirus booster shots — at least for now.
The WHO’s comments came on the heels of plans by Biden’s administration to roll out booster shots nationwide starting on Sept. 20.
WHO chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan, asked about the need for boosters to increase protection against the disease, told a Geneva news conference: “We believe clearly that the data today does not indicate that boosters are needed.”
WHO senior adviser Bruce Aylward, referring to booster shots being administered in high-income countries, told reporters: “There is enough vaccine around the world, but it is not going to the right places in the right order.”
Two doses should be given to the most vulnerable worldwide before boosters are administered to those fully-vaccinated, he said, adding: “We are a long, long way from that.”
The WHO hedged its bet, though, by insisting that “more research is still needed.”
Meanwhile, the dreaded “Delta variant” is still coursing through the country. However, it appears that this variety is hitting vaccinated people in the U.S. by much higher numbers than it is hitting the unvaccinated.
So, if lockdowns work, if masking works, if these untested vaccines work… why do we still see these high numbers of coronavirus cases?
Asking for a friend.
