President Biden announced last week that in starting in September, Covid booster shots would be publicly available to all Americans, and he told those who have already been vaccinated that the booster should be taken within eight months of their second shot.
This set off alarm bells with scientists who said that he was jumping the gun since booster shots have not been FDA approved for all adults and that the evidence for their use was sketchy at best.
Then on the “TODAY” show, Savannah Guthrie pressed CDC Director Rochelle Walensky when she asked whether there is data to support a third dose since current vaccines aren’t preventing breakthrough infections or preventing transmission of the virus.
Watch and listen to her answer below:
High zone tolerance is a real thing. With vaccines and vaccination, more is not always better. Sometimes it can be decidedly worse. So please, respect us, our lives, and our health. Policy must be evidence based. Thank you.
