Decision On Britain’s COVID Booster Vaccine Programme Could Be Made Today

No 10’s top vaccine advisory group will meet today to consider whether or not all Britons should be offered booster COVID vaccines this autumn.

Health chiefs said a decision is expected imminently, with experts now trying to agree on precisely who will need a top-up jab, but one adviser on the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, which guides ministers on the rollout, hinted that only a fraction of the population, the most vulnerable will be offered boosters.

Professor Adam Finn warned more evidence was needed before the panel could make a sound decision on a much broader booster programme, and he said giving third doses to entire age groups wouldn’t make very much difference in the battle against the virus.

Meanwhile, the US yesterday confirmed that top-up jabs would be available for all over 18s from September 20, and it appears that the British Government want to follow suit and has set out plans to dish out boosters at the same time as the flu vaccine at the start of next month, but ministers won’t press ahead with any move until they obtain advice from the JCVI.

Experts have questioned whether top-ups are even needed yet, saying there’s no real proof that protection given by two doses has started to decline.

This is despite a major study today showing double jabbed Brits who catch the Delta COVID variant are just as likely to spread the virus as the unvaccinated.

A World Health Organisation boss yesterday compared booster rollouts to giving life jackets to people who already have them, while others drown.

The same argument, that additional doses should be given to third world countries, was used to argue against vaccinating children.

Professor Adam Finn told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that he thought there was enough evidence, and that he believed that they’ll be imminently deciding and that there will be some people who will need a third dose, especially people who they know will very unlikely be well protected by the first two doses.

But he said that they need more evidence before they can make a sound decision on a much broader booster programme, and he said that discussing the potential of expanding the vaccine rollout to all over 12s was difficult to predict which way that was going to go.

However, it doesn’t matter if they decide against boosters now, we all know that in a few weeks or a few months they will reverse that decision and they will go ahead anyhow because they just can’t make their minds up and it appears that they’re just as whimsical as a child.

And also, if they do decide to just give the vaccines to the vulnerable, once most of them have the boosters it will be extended to other groups and ultimately everyone, especially if you want your passports kept up to date.

Only the vulnerable would perhaps benefit from the vaccine, but if boosters are needed, it casts serious doubt on whether the vaccines work at all, but of course, big pharma wants to jab as many arms as possible because it equals profit, and what big pharma wants, big pharma gets, and all they see is money signs in their eyes.

We were told that two jabs would give immunity, and now it turns out that it doesn’t, so perhaps I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt so that they can stick my third jab in Boris Johnson’s plump rump!

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
