What part of this 'global crisis' are we not achieving?
Pfizer intends to explain privately to US health officials about its status of COVID-19-boosted shots, but US and international public health officials shouldn't hesitate to blast the idea, at this time, images are considered Support is unnecessary and unethical in the face of widespread inequality in the global supply of vaccines. p>
But health officials were quick to say reinforcements last week, and responses only increased. Things got worse after a few days.
The US Department of Health and Human Services issued an unusual joint statement late Thursday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration. "Fully vaccinated Americans do not currently need a booster injection," the statement said. Need for Vaccines
The statement went on to say that US health agencies were monitoring any potential need for booster doses in the future. But health officials won't rely solely on vaccine manufacturers' data, as they clearly have a conflict of interest in deciding whether more imaging is needed. The agencies wrote that the FDA, CDC, and NIH [National Institutes of Health] are engaged in a rigorous science-based process to determine whether or not a booster is needed. This process takes into account laboratory data, clinical trial data, and cohort data—which may include, but is not based on, specific data from specific drug companies. We will continue to review people and keep them informed as new data becomes available. If science shows they need it enough, we're ready for booster doses. WHO officials went even further during Monday's COVID-19 press conference. In addition to noting the lack of evidence of the need for boosters at the present time, they blamed talk of giving third doses to people in rich countries, while many low- and middle-income countries in terms of vaccines even the first doses are not given to most of them. Weak people, such as frontline health workers and the elderly.
"Which part of 'this is a global crisis' are we not facing?" Mike Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organization's Health Emergencies Programme, said at a news briefing. "This remains a global crisis and it is time to protect those most vulnerable in our society." If we can't protect people at risk and discuss reinforcement, "I think we'll be judged...I think we'll look back with anger and look back with shame." Ryan and other experts at the World Health Organization point out that the main purpose of vaccination is to prevent serious disease and death, and that current vaccines work very well. But so far, the main motivation for considering a third dose is protection against mild infections, which may occur when the vaccine wears off over time. Prevention of mild disease in people who have already been vaccinated should not be a priority. Ryan and others say that weak and vulnerable people still die. Ryan said the increased production of vaccines that could lead to boosters should be "to protect the most vulnerable, protect our healthcare workers around the world [and] for death, hospitalization and ventilation." .
In addition, the coronavirus continues to circulate in the unvaccinated population, with more opportunities to evolve into newer, more dangerous strains. Current vaccines are highly effective against current species, including delta, a highly contagious variant that first appeared in India in a predominantly unvaccinated population. But the effect of the vaccine may not be resistant to later types. And if there was a way to completely avoid immune responses to current vaccines, third doses would not only be ethically questionable, but meaningless. Outbreaks, “Where non-vaccinated countries continue to suffer and heavily vaccinated countries have a false sense of security, the epidemic is largely over.
Equitable distribution of vaccines is not the only right thing to do” Dr Tedros said: In everyone's interest.
When you consider that “many countries haven't even started vaccinating, and another country already has the majority of their population.” doses, and now it's moving on to the third dose, which is a booster dose. In fact, it is not only disappointing. He said, "It's very frustrating. So it doesn't make sense. it does not make sense.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that Pfizer and BioNTech plan to meet with US officials on the issue of their reinforcements, according to those familiar with the meeting's plans, Anthony Fauci, chief adviser. Biden President Francis Collins, director of the institutes National Health Organization; Rochelle Valinsky, director of the CDC; Janet Woodcock, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration; David Kessler, chief science officer for COVID-19 response; Who will attend? The meeting was originally scheduled for Monday, but the Post reported that The schedule may change.
