FDA Vaccine Adviser Says Healthy Young People Should Not Get New Covid Booster

FDA Vaccine Adviser Says Healthy Young People Should Not Get New Covid Booster

Dr. Paul Offit also warns Biden administration not to “over-sell” booster.

A leading vaccine expert and pediatric doctor now says healthy young people should avoid getting the new covid booster shot, indicating that it can carry risks and its efficacy hasn’t yet been proven.

Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a member of the Food and Drug Administration’s Vaccine Advisory Committee, said he’s not fully sold on the benefits of a third shot outweighing the harm.

‘Who really benefits from another dose?’ Offit said on CNN.

He did acknowledge that studies have shown people who are over 65, immuno-compromised or have a chronic ailments are less likely to be hospitalized with the virus if they’ve had a third or even fourth shot.

The newly developed dose, called a bivalent vaccine, is a cocktail of the original coronavirus strain combined with parts of the omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants. The hope being that people would be able to fight a broader range of more highly contagious virus mutations.

Offit is warning the Biden administration about over-selling the new covid booster (i.e., containing two strains of omicron covid, BA.4 and BA.5). Offit reported that preliminary data suggested the new bivalent vaccines were worse at warding off COVID infections than the first generation of shots.

OModerna recently published a study on the clinical efficacy of the bivalent vaccine containing BA.1. Sixteen cases of SARS-CoV-2 infections occurred: 11 in the bivalent group and five in the monovalent group. For those who suffered clinical illness, five were in the bivalent group and one in the monovalent group. In other words, although the numbers were small, the monovalent vaccine performed better than the bivalent vaccine.

Heading into the fall, it would make sense to boost those at greatest risk of hospitalization with Covid-19. We should be careful, however, about overselling the bivalent vaccine as something better than the existing vaccine until more data are available.

The American people may no longer buy what the Biden administration has to sell concerning the covid booster. Over 225 million Americans are fully vaccinated, but less than 2 percent have opted to get booster shots.

U.S. health officials say 4.4 million Americans have rolled up their sleeves for the updated COVID-19 booster shot. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted the count Thursday as public health experts bemoaned President Joe Biden’s recent remark that “the pandemic is over.”

….Health experts said it is too early to predict whether demand would match up with the 171 million doses of the new boosters the U.S. ordered for the fall.

“No one would go looking at our flu shot uptake at this point and be like, ‘Oh, what a disaster,’” said Dr. David Dowdy, an infectious disease epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “If we start to see a large uptick in cases, I think we’re going to see a lot of people getting the (new COVID) vaccine.”

Reports of triple- and quadruple-vaccinated politicians and bureaucrats becoming infected have made Americans reconsider covid vaccination projections from “experts.”

The more this plays out, the more I’m convinced the actual “shot” is the bio weapon/attack.

The “disease” was the false flag to sell it.

    Hang on, let me check my notes:
    Rushed development and rollout.
    Deliberately compromised control group.
    Unproven technology for delivery mechanism.
    Mandatory vacation.
    Refusal to release any negative information.
    Ostracism and cancellation for any dissent.
    Continued use of emergency powers for questionable ends.
    Refusal to relinquish the emergency powers.

    Yeah, seems to check out on some level.

      “Unproven technology for delivery mechanism.”

      A technology “platform” and delivery mechanism with intersting payoffs for interesting collections of interests. Read what Micro-Bill had to say about these.

      Always, cui bono?

    Utopia was a magnificent stroke of bad luck for the plandemic hoaxers.
    And now the epidemic of clots on the embalming table… too much to discount.

Careful, Dr, Offit, heresy like that, in California, can lead to your medical license getting yanked. Can Philly be far behind?

    That, or he will commit suicide with two bullets to the brain, falling out of a window, and then found at the bottom of a cliff in his burned-out car.

Sorry:

“He did acknowledge that studies have shown people who are over 65, immuno-compromised or have a chronic ailments are less likely to be hospitalized with the virus if they’ve had a third or even fourth shot.”

does not work for me. How about early treatment for those that did not get it are doing the best.

    I am old, and those who have been here for a while know that I am not exactly the picture of health. I refuse to get any more shots. I had the first two, there will be no more.

      I’m in a similar boat, with similar intentions. I have some interest in the Novavax ‘rona vaccine as a booster, which is *not* approved use in US, and not being investigated as a “booster” post the “primary sequence.”

      Interesting to me, Novavax, the company, has a history of developing vaccines approved and deemed effective for hard to address viral diseases. The Novavax ‘rona vaccine is protein-based OldTech. And Novavax are the people who couldn’t get their thing approved in the US while 90+ other countries had it in approved use. Turns out it ships and stores better than the lipid nanobubble delivery vaccines.

      Also interesting to me, neither how to manage yourself while getting vaccine, nor how to manage yourself in dealing with the ‘rona, are topics of discussion or direction. Seems like either would be useful. For example, there are some studies that show *increased* response to the *approved vaccines*, depending on how rested you are when you get the jab. Now, is that controlling, as in “Get your beauty rest and the shot works better?” Or coincident? Or bad studies? Observational studies are suggestive, not determinative. BUT, how about we investigate that a bit — better response to the jabs is better, right?

      Jabs are not the only way to “boost” people’s health. I do wish these people would satisfy their obsession with poking things by getting a red convertible and pneumatic blonde.

        Old fashioned notions such as eat healthy, get exercise, stop smoking, lay off excessive amounts of booze and get a good night’s sleep don’t make the pharmaceutical companies any money.

      Time for an update on your health—always concerned, would like to know your progress.

    Ironclaw in reply to MarkSmith. | September 28, 2022 at 3:21 pm

    I always had a problem with that claim. How do you prove that someone would or would not have needed hospitalization had they made a different choice on the jab? This is a completely non-falsifiable claim. Do we have access to alternate realities or something?

But make sure you run over to Walgreens and get your shot before the hurricane gets here! Thanks, Brandon, I’ll get off at the next exit on my way out of town.

As Malone said about DNA. If you been vaxxed, you are now programmed to what ever they want to give you. Bill Gates will execute you through office 365.

I am waiting for a letter of apology from the CDC for having the good sense to not get vaccinated from day one. Now I don’t have to worry about all of the delayed side effects being reported. Some of them are very scary. It seems to be mostly from the boosters which were given an automatic approval.

Unless I missed it, the article does not define “Young.”

In truth, NOBODY should get that thing. It’s testing is limited to 8 MICE, NO HUMANS.

I know that this is anecdotal, but whatever.

My husband had the J&J, no boosters. My elder child had pfizer, 2 shots, no boosters. My younger had pfizer(?), 2 shots *and* 2 boosters to keep her college happy. I haven’t had any.

Back in April, kid in college and I got sick the same day even though she was in NY and I in CT. other than how long our fevers lasted, we had the exact same course, getting sick on Tuesday and feeling fine on Friday. Elder kid and husband both got it around the same time, probably from me. Elder didn’t get that sick, but took longer to get over it, and husband had an ER visit on day 1, got the antiviral, and was fine by day 4.

So, based on a sample size of 4, it would seem that the shot made no difference to the likelihood of catching the bug, nor to the duration or severity of illness with it.

If the WuFlu had a mortality rate along the lines of yersinia pestis, hell yes, I’d have got the shot, but based on the data from the Diamond Princess and the USS Roosevelt, I didn’t see any reason to bother.

Had no choice got the J&J and 1 booster and the city I live in is spamming us of the new booster and I won’t get it. The president declared it over.

Here’s another study by a British cardiologist just released that destroys the call for vaccines:

https://amgreatness.com/2022/09/27/british-cardiologist-who-initially-promoted-covid-vaccines-releases-peer-reviewed-papers-calling-for-suspension-of-mrna-shots/

He also castigates the irresponsibility of the medical profession for going along with the vaccine mandates and vaccines passports.

I feel so-o-o-o-o vindicated. I may be an evil person, but not for refusing to take the poison poke.
