The covid vaccine boosters are all over the news these days, and experts have been addressing people who should or should not get them

Just the other day, we reported that the discussion about who should get them intensifies with each passing day and the controversies about the subject continue. 

WHO drops news about Covid vaccines boosters 

Last month, we were revealing that U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine booster shot is suitable for younger at-risk workers.

Fox News also made sure to report that this is seen as a rare break from the agency’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices panel. 

CNN notes that distributing Covid-19 vaccine booster shots in some countries while inoculations across Africa lag is “immoral.” This is according to the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO).

The increasing use of boosters is “immoral, unfair and unjust and it has to stop,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told CNN’s Becky Anderson the other day. We suggest that you check out our previous article in order to learn more details about this controversial subject. 

Americans and covid vaccines boosters 

CNBC just noted that according to the latest reports, there are more Americans who are getting third Covid shots than first vaccine doses as people who completed their two-dose regimen of Pfizer or Moderna’s shots six or more months ago are now eligible and lining up for an extra shot. 

“An average of 362,000 people a day got boosters over the past week, about 57% more than the 231,000 people per day who started their first doses, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” the online publication notes. 

“It’s kind of reminiscent of those early days when over-65 qualified in a priority group and we saw people flooding websites and pharmacies and clinics.”

This is what Dr. Kavita Patel, a primary care physician in Washington, stated.
