New Covid Booster Shot Will Be Available Next Week, Just Before Expected Primary Election Season Surge
According to media reports, the primary election variant of COVID-19 is rapidly approaching. The COVID-19 booster shot is arriving in time to support the narrative.
I’ve lost track, but I think this is COVID-19 booster #7 for most sheeple.
(NewsNation) — A new COVID-19 booster could be coming next week, just in time for an expected surge in cases heading into the fall.
The Federal Drug Administration is expected to approve the updated shots as early as Friday, according to NBC News. That would pave the way for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to give final approval next week. The CDC’s panel of independent advisers is set to meet Tuesday, WABC-TV reported.
COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths are rising by double-digit percentages, according to CDC data, though rates remain far below pandemic-era levels.
When will it be available? Potentially, as soon as Sept. 13.
First, the FDA will meet — possibly this week — to approve the shot. After it does, a panel of independent advisers to the CDC will meet and recommend who should be eligible for the shots. The panel is set to meet on Tuesday.
What’s new about this booster? The latest shot will target the XBB.1.5 omicron subvariant. While CDC data shows it’s no longer the dominant strain, the updated booster should protect against other current subvariants, NBC News reported, citing drugmakers and experts. EG.5 is the current dominant strain.
Moderna claims its new vaccine is effective against the newly emerged B.2.86 variant, unofficially dubbed “Pirola,” which the CDC has warned may be more infectious than other strains among those who have had COVID before. (read more)
