Officials Issue Statement on Covid Vaccine Booster Guidance


According to health officials, people who are fully vaccinated do not need COVID-19 booster shots. 

“We are prepared for booster doses if and when the science demonstrates that they are needed,” The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a joint statement Thursday. 

The agencies said those who are vaccinated are protected from COVID-19 variants. They also urged Americans 12 and older who have not yet received the vaccine to do so, per NBC News

“People who are not vaccinated remain at risk. Virtually all Covid-19 hospitalizations and deaths are among those who are unvaccinated,” the statement said. 

It is critical to mention, however, that there are many stories of children receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and experiencing life-altering side-effects, or even death. 

As previously reported by Human Events News, 13-year-old Jacob Clynick from Michigan died in his sleep just three days after receiving the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. According to a report, the CDC has opened an investigation into his death and whether or not it was directly related to the vaccine. 

Contrary to this new information from health officials, Pfizer announced Thursday that it is working on mass production of a third vaccine dose, saying another shot could be beneficial. 

Who do we believe? 

The FDA, CDC and National Institutes of Health “are engaged in a science-based, rigorous process to consider whether or when a booster might be necessary,” the groups said in their statement. “This process takes into account laboratory data, clinical trial data, and cohort data – which can include data from specific pharmaceutical companies, but does not rely on those data exclusively. We continue to review any new data as it becomes available and will keep the public informed.”
