(JustPatriots.com)- On Monday, the United States Food and Drug Administration’s staff said that expert advisers will be meeting later this week to discuss the issue of COVID-19 boosters and to decide whether or not it would be wise to recommend American adults to take a fourth shot.
The same panel of advisers will also give their opinion on the role of the FDA in deciding the composition of COVID-19 vaccines.
It comes after President Joe Biden appeared on television advocating for a fourth vaccine and taking a fourth shot live on air.
Late in March, U.S. health officials authorized a second COVID-19 booster shot of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines for people over the age of 50, which means that a large number of Americans are already taking their fourth shot. The logic behind the announcement was that with the spread of the Omicron variants of COVID-19 and the waning effectiveness of the vaccine, more people should take another shot…of a vaccine that is waning in effectiveness.
Do you see how crazy this is?
In a statement on Monday, the FDA said that new variants of COVID are likely to be more transmissible and different from previous versions. It was a warning that, without continued vaccination, the pandemic could start raging all over again.
“The accumulating data suggest that the composition of vaccines may need to be updated at some point to ensure the high level of efficacy demonstrated in the early vaccine clinical trials,” FDA staff said.
Will you take a fourth shot?
