The Biden administration’s push to roll out coronavirus vaccine booster shots this month has largely been shaped by unpublished data from Israel’s vaccination campaign, according to two individuals familiar with the matter. The Israel data, which is set to be made public as soon as this week, shows that the Pfizer vaccine’s ability to prevent severe disease and hospitalization is waning over time — as is the shot’s protection against mild and moderate disease, the two sources said.
I told you, people, this isn’t about the “messaging.” This simply isn’t a vaccine in any usual meaning of the word. It’s a therapeutic with limited short-term efficacy. Since there is no vaccine, the choice isn’t between vaccinating and not. The choice is to treat the sick once or drug the healthy many times to lower the probability of having to treat them once.
