All around the United States and world the Covid vaccines are being passed out. The world is quite literally forcing the hand of the vaccines.
Now we are on to the boosters as the original shots are becoming less effective at a rapid rate. Now the WHO is weighing in and saying if we should even focus on the boosters at this time.
Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone was on the same page?

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Monday that COVID-19 booster shots should be delayed as priority should be given to raising vaccination rates in countries where only 1% or 2% of the population has been inoculated.
If vaccination rates are not raised globally, stronger variants of the coronavirus could develop and vaccines intended as booster shots should be donated to countries where people have not received their first or second doses, he said during a visit to Budapest.
“In addition, there is a debate about whether booster shots are effective at all,” Ghebreyesus told a news conference with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto.
The Unites States announced last week it plans to make COVID-19 vaccine booster shots widely available starting on Sept. 20 as infections rise from the coronavirus Delta variant.
