: : "A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel voted unanimously on Friday in favor of a booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for people 65 and older and for individuals at high risk for severe disease, with the shot given at least six months after their initial vaccination."
: : Why not all? Because "Members' concerns centered on the amount and quality of data available to weigh the booster's long-term effectiveness and its safety in young people."
: : There's not enough evidence ALL Americans would benefit, but we all know the elderly don't have strong immune systems nor do people at high risk. That's why even the dosage of the FLU shot is managed differently for elderly and people at high risk.
: : For what it's worth, the RISK of blood clots is SIGNIFICANTLY higher in people who have contracted COVID19 (39 in 1 million) than the people who have received the vaccine (4 in 1 million).
: : Your chances of dying from the disease are 11 times higher if you are UNvaccinated than if you are vaccinated and have a breakthrough case of COVID19.
: : And if you're going to make a claim the Advisory panel "refused" boosters, you need to link to the story (or tweet) you're quoting. We need to know the source of your claim.
