Boosters are going to be offered to over-50s this end (as well as vulnerable groups, etc.) six months after the second jab. The thing is, we have scant knowledge at the moment about how long immunity lasts. I'm thinking that getting the world vaccinated should have a higher priority than giving boosters in rich western countries. We won't be safe until we're all safe.

FDA advisory panel backs coronavirus boosters only for the elderly, those at high risk
The twin votes Friday represented a heavy blow to the Biden administration’s sweeping effort to shore up nearly all Americans’ protection amid the spread of the highly contagious delta variant.

Chances are this won't open, they deploy the paywall pretty quickly. But here are the high points:

WASHINGTON — An influential federal advisory panel overwhelmingly rejected a plan Friday to give Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots to most Americans, but it endorsed the extra shots for those who are 65 or older or run a high risk of severe disease.

The twin votes represented a heavy blow to the Biden administration’s sweeping effort to shore up nearly all Americans’ protection amid the spread of the highly contagious delta variant.

The decision was made by a committee of outside experts who advise the Food and Drug Administration.

In a surprising turn, the panel first rejected, by a vote of 16-2, boosters for nearly everyone. Members cited a lack of safety data on extra doses and also raised doubts about the value of mass boosters, rather than ones targeted to specific groups.

Then, in an 18-0 vote, it endorsed the extra shot for select portions of the U.S. population — namely, those most at risk from the virus.

That would help salvage part of the White House’s campaign but would still be a huge step back from the huge plan proposed by administration a month ago to offer booster shots of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to nearly all Americans eight months after they get their second dose.

Friday’s vote was just the first step. The FDA itself is expected to make a decision on boosters in the next few days, though it usually follows the committee’s recommendations.

The offering of boosters is also subject to approval by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A CDC advisory panel is expected to take up the question on Wednesday. The CDC has said it is considering boosters for older people, nursing home residents and front-line health care workers, rather than all adults.

If memory serves, Dick Army in the dead of night inserted language into a bill giving amnesty to vaccine makers that protected them from being sued by concerned parents that were misled by a UK doctor over mercury content as a preservative. Dick Army was a Congressman who supported the Tea Party loonies on the far right. 24 years ago the hybrid seeds of the wierd right and whacky vaccine conspiracies were planted in the politics of America. Jenny McCarthy and other wierdos kept up thier campaign for years. Today when vaccines are even more important the murky history of anti vaccinators has reached a critical mass. Dick Army went on to be a hero of the Tea Party, although Dick was working against their vaccine conspiracy. He was surely rewarded by big pharma and was a pioneer of groups that were historically insurrectionist friendly like the Tea Party.
I do not give him the credit for the white nationalist nazis or KKK aspects of the current Republican strategy and he did not know how far his Newt Gingrich antics would be amplified but he did start a political fire in the Capitol that night at 3AM. To me it supports Chaos theory about how a small flap of an insect's wings could grow into a deadly storm.

We're both wholeheartedly 'up for it' and will be thankful for the opportunity to safeguard our immunity.

He's a sane voice all right, Maggie. I got half way through, got his message then had to stop to do other stuff. I'll try to remember as close as I can to what he said half way through, that "the only chance we have is to vaccine our way out." Spot on. We will never mask our way out or social distance our way out, not from now on. We must tell everyone how to be sensible, to know how the thing is spread but to allow everyone their freedoms to live normal lives. The playing field has changed, and it's all about vaccines. Unfortunately, unlike here, tens of millions of your countrymen have yet to realise that. Even Joe Biden, bless him, is sounding desperate about it. And let's not be parish-pump about it. We are not safe until the world is safe. And that means vaccinating everyone, everywhere.

A dear friend of mine has a lovely daughter, now in her 20s, who has achieved amazing things in the Royal College of Music. Next week she's playing the solo part in Mozart's clarinet concerto with our local orchestra. I won't be going because I don't want to be up close and personal with hundreds of other people for two hours in our local hall, not while the case rates are so high round here. It breaks my heart, but the risk just isn't worth it as far as I'm concerned. .

I'm sorry to have to say this, but you have just betrayed the anti-Brit sentiment that has been very thinly veiled through this thread. My use of the word "we" has had nothing to do with speaking for a cabal of Brits (which I never do) and it is very dishonest of you to level that at me. Furthermore, your "news" is never to be relied on without a thorough check. You told us that 99% off infections are in unvaccinated people. That is blatantly untrue, yet that post is still here, unchallenged until now. Yet I'm under attack from two of you for questioning a piece about a man who claims he can end all pandemics for ever. This will undoubtedly be deleted, but I'm watching like a hawk to see whether your untruths and your dishonestly-expressed anti-Brit nonsense also go, along with your accusation of my irrationality (you of all people...) In this neck of the woods you can politely disagree with someone, giving your reasons (which you seldom if ever do) without insulting them. Why don't you try it some time.

But here you have a man claiming to have a magic bullet to end all pandemics forever. And you are not even a teensy bit sceptical? I don't think you've read it. I have!

By the way, my background is in biological science. So, just a guess, if you think I don't know as much about the science, etc., it's a fair bet that you know even less. And one deeply-ingrained aspect of scientific endeavour is that one's first reaction to a new idea is scepticism. It then behoves you to delve deeper to look for substance. Well I read the piece and found the substance to be highly dubious, and I gave you just two examples among more that I noticed. OK?

I am referring exclusively to the item linked to, which has a bloke claiming that he has a magic bullet for all viruses or something. He hasn't. We have a programme this end called Panorama, generally reputable if occasionally amateurish, which is also capable of generating bullshit every now and again. It happens. Let's take a look. They did an experimental, untested procedure on a woman nearly dead with sepsis. Completely unethical. Presumably, the experiment withheld the standard emergency antibiotic treatment for sepsis (otherwise they wouldn't have known what had worked...). She recovered in four days (we're told). Fairly rapid recovery from sepsis isn't that unusual. He also claims to have the 1918 flu virus to hand. He hasn't. It's a reconstructed version thereof. We all know about mutant strains these days, don't we? I won't go on. As I said, let's not be taken in. Your man is of interest only. He is by no means the prospective saviour of the world.

Yes the price of stupid is so expenive now it is unaffordable for the unvaccinated who are 99% of the currently infected. The main cause is that some people do not like being told what to do, tough, there are some things you have to do to live.
It is tough being told you now have to die because of your vaccine resitance.

The news here is grim with a quarter million childhood infections, 1 in 4 of all infections. We tried to pretend we turned a corner but in reality we are in the middle of pandemic times and are entering a seasonal multidemic battle with flu as well.

We can easily recognize who contributes new important and unimportant news on the pandemic and those who merely carp about others here. True contributors include links to factual studies and stories. I suggest the 60 minutes story link holds water but you are your own judge.

Powerful stuff there.

I'm not a fan of forcing anyone to have jabs for this or for flu. We've allowed anti-vaxxers and other assorted nutters to throw us behind the curve. We need a massive campaign of public education about this disease with full information and persuasion to the fore. Billboards, radio, telly, ads online...Videos like this one are great - but shove them in front of people, don't hide them on YouTube. I do find it puzzling that there has been a lot of compulsion behind mask-wearing (questionable at best and quite possibly useless) but not behind vaccination (THE only way out of this). But education and persuasion, never compulsion. Compulsion engenders revolt and goes against the grain of democracy. Thin end of the wedge...?

Both bad news and good news coexist.

Jeri, I absolutely don't hate you. There are times when I don't understand you but that's par for the course in this two-dimensional world. Actually, I even think I once told you that I loved you... ;-) You're right about those two. I didn't need to react, did I. I should just have said grrr, preferably internally...

Steve, while I'm pretty sure you already hate me, I'll share this anyway.
I once complained to an acquaintance that a person kept saying things on Mudcat that were stupid, and annoying, and I felt like I had to do something about that.
He told me "Don't play with trolls".
I said, "But he's so wrong and what he says shouldn't be allowed to stand unchallenged."
He said "Don't play with trolls."

While people may not BE trolls, when they provoke an emotional response in you, the messages are trolling. Don't play.

And me, I'll shut up and f*ck off in accordance with imagined reaction to this. Please carry on.

(My "troll" was Martin Gibson, if anyone remembers.)
