Should America vaccinate children?
Unless necessary, Sweden will not
As of today, the CDC still defines people as fully vaccinated “two weeks after their second dose in a two-shot series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the J&J/Janssen vaccine. Fully vaccinated, however is not the same as optimally protected. To be optimally protected, a person needs to get a booster shot when and if eligible.”
Yet ABC News just reported “As of Wednesday, just under half of those who are eligible to receive a booster -- about 85 million Americans -- have yet to receive their additional shot, and data shows that each day, fewer and fewer Americans are getting vaccinated.” The article goes on to say that Dr. Fauci thinks “it is still unclear whether an additional booster shot will be recommended, as scientists are still trying to determine how much protection is provided by the first booster.”
The confusion only can increase anxiety for those wanting to know if we are safe to resume life..ever. Now take Sweden.
