As we all know, the FDA officially 100% approved the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine to the public. This is quite a big step in the vaccination process as they now have fully approved it’s success.
If only it was that easy. We now are proceeding with caution as there has been mixed reports on this official approval.
The infamous World Health Organization has weighed in with a very drastic and surprising statement on the vaccine which is quite different from original reports.

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.
Those whose immune system is compromised should get a booster shot, though they represent only small percentage of the population, he added.
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.
