A Group of US and International Scientists Claim Current Evidence does not support Providing Booster Doses of SARS-CoV-2 Vaccines to the General Public

the staff of the Ridgewood blog
Ridgewood NJ,  in an expert review published September 13 online in the peer-reviewed journal The Lancet, a group of US and international scientists claim current evidence does not support providing booster doses of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines to the general public. The group—including 2 departing US FDA officials and WHO experts—said that any decision to provide additional vaccine doses should be evidence-based, concluding that despite a small drop in protection against symptomatic disease caused by the Delta variant, authorized vaccine regimens continue to provide high levels of protection against severe disease and hospitalization for all major SARS-CoV-2 variants. The authors acknowledged that some additional doses might be needed immediately for certain elderly and immunocompromised populations, but they encouraged prioritizing primary immunizations over booster shots for the general public.

England Drops Plans for Vaccine Passports

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, England has abandoned its previously announced plan to implement a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine passport program by the end of this month that would have required people to show proof of vaccination to enter the country’s nightclubs and certain other crowded venues, UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid told the BBC on September 12. The announcement was made following opposition from some members of Parliament as well as representatives of the hospitality industry, who said such a program would create a burden for businesses and infringe on residents’ rights. Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, Secretary Javid said the government decided against the passports after “properly” looking at the issue and determining other factors could help keep COVID-19 incidence down, including high vaccine uptake, testing, surveillance, and treatments. Some people suggested the passport proposal simply was a ruse to encourage young people to be vaccinated, although Secretary Javid hinted the government could reverse course again if the number of new cases rises. About 66% of the population of England is fully vaccinated. Several days prior to the announcement, British researchers published a paper in EClinicalMedicine casting doubt on whether vaccination passport programs would incentivize more people to get the shots and calling for additional research into the matter.
