The Center for Disease Control can be a bit confusing. Their suggestions make sense sometimes, and other times they aren’t even close to the mark.
The Covid-19 booster shots are open for every adult now after the CDC approves them. Our Lord and Savior, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, CDC director, expanded the eligibility. The Covid-19 vaccines are still under the emergency use authorization, and OSHA found out pretty quickly that the Covid-19 vaccine mandates weren’t going to fly.
The expansion of the booster shot is fine, this is America, and if an adult wants to get a booster shot, they should have the freedom to do so. The mandate is another thing. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention advisory panel decided on this after voting 11-0 on Friday.
Before the vote, the Federal Drug Administration approved requests from Moderna and Pfizer for all adults to be eligible for the booster shots. Interestingly, just two months after voting 16-3 against recommending the booster shot, the FDA approved it for everyone. If they said there weren’t enough shots available, that would be one thing, but they denied it, and there’s a prediction of why they did.
The Covid-19 vaccine efficacy is starting to be questioned. That’s because more fully vaccinated people are getting Covid-19, and even some are being hospitalized. Because this is such a new vaccine that hasn’t even been administered for an entire year, the manufacturer, the CDC, and the FDA have to get reliable data for the efficacy of the vaccines. Though the mRNA technology has been around for decades, that doesn’t mean it’s been studied in vaccine administration. There isn’t data to show how efficient the Covid-19 vaccine is. The only way to tell is to allow the human trials, i.e., the administration of the EUA vaccines, to play out to maximum efficacy before allowing the boosters to be given.
There’s good information to back this up. When Dr. Eric Rubin, a Harvard professor and editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, described how to find the side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine on children, he said, “but we’re never going to learn about how safe this vaccine is unless we start giving it.”
That statement tells you everything you need to know about the administration of the Covid-19 vaccines. They’re so stringent on the data and the side effects because they have to continue studying the efficacy of the EUA and because they don’t know the consequences. It is also why it’s dangerous to mandate the Covid-19 vaccines.
