A top executive at the World Health Organization (WHO) said there was “no evidence” to suggest that CCP virus booster doses provide “stronger protection” for healthy people.
Dr. Mike Ryan, Head of Emergency at WHO, questioned the logic of some countries trying to generate more booster doses to vaccinate people over the age of 18.
“There is currently no evidence to suggest that increasing the overall population will increase the protection of healthy individuals against hospitalization and death,” Ryan said. Said..
“The real risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death lies with vulnerable individuals, especially at risk,” he said. “Needs protection against all variants of COVID-19,” a disease party (CCP) virus caused by the Chinese Communist Party. Health agencies around the world generally consider older people, people with weakened immunity, and people who work in high-risk environments to be vulnerable.
England Recently announced Ensuring 114 million vaccinations in 2022 and 2023. These doses will be available to all persons over the age of 18 by the end of January 2022.
On Monday, President Joe Biden called on Americans over the age of 18 to take booster shots with the advent of the Omicron COVID-19 mutant in South Africa, which has been detected in at least five US states so far. I did.
South African health officials said in an interview this week that people infected with the Omicron variant nominated by WHO last week show “very mild” symptoms. There were no deaths associated with the COVID-19 strain, authorities said it was significantly mutated, and WHO authorities said it caused more serious illness and the protection provided by innate immunity and vaccination. Warned that there was not enough data to determine if there was a possibility of violating.
In some countries, boosters must be received 6 months after the initial vaccination regimen in order to be considered “fully vaccinated”. US officials, including the Governor of New Mexico and the Governor of Connecticut, have already claimed that they are not considered fully vaccinated unless they obtain a booster effect.
Earlier this year, Israel attached that it would receive a booster dose as a condition to enter a particular business using the country’s “Green Pass” COVID-19 vaccine passport.Meanwhile, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Told the BBC The vaccine booster may be needed each year in the future.
Ryan’s comment comes when other WHO officials have criticized the United States, European countries, Israel and others for imposing a travel ban on South African countries for a variant of Omicron. Previously, WHO leader Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus urged wealthy countries to provide initial vaccination to poor countries, rather than focusing on giving boosts to their populations.
