Repeated COVID boosters not a viable strategy — WHO

7

WHO experts warned Tuesday that repeating booster doses of the original COVID vaccines is not a viable strategy against emerging variants and called for new jabs that better protect against transmission.

An expert group created by the World Health Organization to assess the performance of COVID-19 vaccines said simply providing fresh jabs of existing COVID vaccines as new strains of the virus emerge was not the best way to fight the pandemic.

“A vaccination strategy based on repeated booster doses of the original vaccine composition is unlikely to be appropriate or sustainable,” the WHO Technical Advisory Group on COVID-19 Vaccine Composition (TAG-Co-VAC) said in a statement.

It said preliminary data indicated the existing vaccines were less effective at preventing symptomatic COVID disease in people who have contracted the new Omicron variant, currently spreading like wildfire around the world.

But protection against severe disease, which is what the jabs were especially intended to do, “is more likely to be preserved”.

It recommended developing vaccines that not only protect people against falling seriously ill but could also better prevent infection and transmission in the first place.

“COVID-19 vaccines that have high impact on prevention of infection and transmission, in addition to the prevention of severe disease and death, are needed and should be developed,” TAG-Co-VAC said.

“Until such vaccines are available, and as the SARS-CoV-2 virus evolves, the composition of current COVID-19 vaccines may need to be updated, to ensure that (they) continue to provide WHO-recommended levels of protection against infection and disease by VOCs (variants of concern), including Omicron and future variants.”

    Where’s da #BEACH!

  2. Increase your personal immunity levels, that is paramount in fighting any virus, strengthen your body’s immune system. Vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc. Using a mentholated stimulant dispersed in very hot water, do steam inhalations covering your head and the container; do deep breathing exercises by exhaling slowly for a count of about ten, or more if you can, to totally empty your lungs and then breathe in and repeat about twenty times. If you can, hold the emptied breath stance for at least 30 seconds. Take saline nasal baths. Vaccinate and boost, social distance, stop congregating in crowds, sanitize your hands and surfaces that you are required to touch that are touched by others, wear a surgical mask.
    We need to understand that the virus needs our bodies in order to replicate. If the virus does not have a host, it dies. Therefore, it behooves us to as much as is possible deny it entry. It has a very short life span after it is expelled into the atmosphere. This is why when the lockdown and curfews are in effect the numbers decrease and when they are lifted they increase.
    At least that is how I see it.

  3. 😂😂 I don’t know what kind of idiots they have working at the WHO that it took them so long to figure out what they were/are doing was/is ridiculous and frankly dangerous.
    #HIGH #ZONE #TOLERANCE !!!
    I know what kind works at the CDC and NIAID.
    #GREEDY #CAPTURED #LIARS !!!

  4. Free up the Cuban vaccines. Stop pushing these
    phucking experimental therapeutics… NOT “VACCINES” on people, especially children….
    WHO: World Hoax Organization!!!

  5. … Now they tell those who have already taken the vaccine booster shots. THIS IS WHY I AM WAITING UNTIL ALL VACCINE TRIALS ARE FINISHED, here’s a reminder:

    Astrazeneca 14th February 2023

    Moderna 27th October 2022

    Pfizer 6th April 2023

    Stay safe everyone!
