World Health Organisation Concerned That Covid-19 Vaccine Boosters Only Prolong Pandemic

An advisory group to the World Health Organisation (WHO) has shared their concerns that “broad-based administration” of the covid-19 vaccine boosters risk exacerbating problems of vaccine access by diverting supply from under-vaccinated countries to those with already high vaccination rates.

However, it’s not only the WHO advisors that are growing increasingly concerned that the booster program is getting out of hand, Israel is preparing to dish out their latest round of doses, which can do more harm than good, said WHO Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

With 20 percent of vaccine supplies going towards boosters, these “blanket booster programs” are likely to prolong the pandemic rather than end it, because diverting the vaccine supply to countries with high levels of immunity allows the virus to spread and mutate across the globe.

The WHO state that global access can help minimise health impacts and transmission, reducing the risk of mutating variants in poorer countries, which could prolong the pandemic.

Additionally, the WHO said that vaccine booster dose policy decisions should be based on evidence of individual and public health benefits and obligations to secure global equity in vaccine access.

Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus added that no country can “boost” its way out of the pandemic. The health organisation aimed for its member states to have at least 40 percent of their population vaccinated by the end of 2021. Although, estimates show that by mid-2022, only half of all member states will have reached 40 percent.

    Oh dear, oh dear! Crocodile tears! We might end up with some unjabbed parts of the world serving as a control group! Mustn’t have that! Can’t let this agenda go off the rails when it seemed to be going so well!

    ‘They’ don’t know what to do. Lies are a dead end when truth awakens. So many are close to doing exactly that. Just a little bit more push Tappers.
