It’s been just revealed that an Oxford vaccine scientist released an important statement about vaccines. Check out the latest reports coming from CNN below.
CNN noted that a leading expert who helped create the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine said Tuesday that giving everyone in the world booster shots multiple times a year is not a feasible thing to do.
“We can’t vaccinate the planet every four to six months. It’s not sustainable or affordable.”
This is what Professor Andrew Pollard, the director of the Oxford Vaccine Group and head of the UK’s Committee on Vaccination and Immunization, told The Daily Telegraph in an interview published Tuesday.
There’s a need to target the vulnerable
The same expert also highlighted the fact that the “need to target the vulnerable” going forward, rather than administering doses to everyone age 12 and older.
More data is needed to ascertain “whether, when and how often those who are vulnerable will need additional doses,” he said.
He also said he thought further evidence was needed before offering a fourth Covid-19 shot to people in the UK. It’s essential to note that the country is currently rolling out third shots to healthy people 18 and older, and at-risk people 16 and older.

The other day, we were revealing that the latest reports from the United Kingdom suggest that a common covid symptom has returned for the omicron variant — brain fog.
The Daily Express recently reported that covid patients have been talking about “brain fog” as one of their symptoms in the ZOE COVID Study app. It’s important to note that this records and analyzes symptoms as reported by patients.
“One of the more unusual — but surprisingly common — symptoms of Omicron is so-called brain fog,” The Daily Express reports.
