Dr. Paul Offit, a vaccine expert embraced by the corporate media, wrote in an essay that data on the latest version of the COVID-19 booster indicates that it may not be worthwhile for most people because of its effectiveness.

Offit, the director of the vaccine education center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a member of the Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisory committee, raised questions about the vaccine in the 11 January issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

He cited work by other researchers who found the new booster produced about as many antibodies as the original jab, which is disappointing given that the booster was tailored to respond to the latest strain of the virus. 

“The experience of the past year has taught us that chasing these Omicron variants with bivalent vaccines is a losing game,” he wrote, according to Time magazine.

Offit said in an interview that the updated boosters from Pfizer and Moderna are likely the best option for people at high risk of severe illness or death from the disease.

NBC News noted that Offit’s opinion is not shared by the government that recommends jabs for everyone 6 months and older. 

Americans are not running out to get the new booster. Just 18 percent of adults in the U.S. have taken the latest jab despite 79 percent of the country having received at least two jabs. Just before the Christmas holiday, about a third of Americans say they don’t consider the virus a major risk and about 77 percent said they are ready to start living their lives again.

The Food and Drug Administration approved the booster for children 5 years old and younger in October. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted that fewer than 1 million children from 5 to 11 have taken the jab. 

TRENDPOST: The Trends Journal has reported extensively on how the COVID-19 vaccines failed to live up to their billing. (See “DEMOCRATS CAN RUN, BUT THEY CAN’T HIDE FROM CDC CHILD VACCINE DECISION” and “EU PROSECUTOR OPENS INVESTIGATION INTO PFIZER COVID ‘VACCINE’ mRNA TREATMENT PURCHASE.”) And, we noted how many of those who promoted the COVID Jab, got the coronavirus. (See “COMEDY CLASSIC: PRESSTITUTES AND POLITICIANS WHO PUSH THE COVID JAB, GET COVID.”)

Last week, we reported that researchers monitoring new COVID-19 variants have noticed a trend that the more vaccine doses an individual takes, the more likely they are to come down with the new variant of the virus.
