Second COVID-19 booster on the horizon?

| November 29, 2021

Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson are set to work on a vaccine tailored to address the omicron variant of COVID-19. Initial reports suggest that this variant may be able to circumvent both natural immunity from prior infections, and the immunity gained from the vaccines. This variant is reported to be more transmissible than previous variants.

From Newsmax:

The variant’s emergence has triggered a strong global response as countries worried that it could spread fast even in vaccinated populations impose travel curbs and other restrictions.

BioNTech SE said it had started work on a vaccine tailored to Omicron, along with partner Pfizer.

Meanwhile, Moderna Inc said it could take months to begin shipping such a vaccine, Chief Executive Officer Stéphane Bancel told CNBC.

Bancel said the effectiveness of existing COVID-19 vaccines against the variant was currently not known, adding there should be more clarity in about two weeks.

Johnson & Johnson is also evaluating the effectiveness of its COVID-19 vaccine against Omicron, while also pursuing a vaccine specific to the variant.

“We have begun work to design and develop a new vaccine against Omicron and will rapidly progress it into clinical studies if needed,” said Mathai Mammen, global head of research for J&J’s pharmaceuticals unit.

I agree, ChipNASA.

FFS. Lets do it… “Initial reports suggest that this variant may be able to circumvent both natural immunity from prior infections and the immunity gained from the vaccines.” -Natural immunity was, is and forever will be, more durable and more dynamic in coverage of variants than ANY vaccine. -This Genetic Code Injection (GCI) does not confer immunity. For many people the GCI will remove natural (gained) immunity. (don’t get me started on ADE risk) -The… Read more »

Reports from South Africa say that it is very much milder disease, and that most people have been treated at home. Also no loss of taste and smell.

If so, I think girlfriend’s father just had it (definitely COVID) but no fever, loss of taste/smell, etc. just no energy (got a stupid infection at the hospital which was way worse treating it– covid-related?– though).

Calm down, everyone. It will be several months (Spring 2021 at the earliest) before any type of 4th shot would even be a possibility. Cold winter months ahead to see what unfolds around the world (hot and cold), in the USA (warm and cold), and especially in (cold) jump the gun New York. Remember, it’s currently 80F by day & 60F at night in South Africa, and getting hotter. Besides, I just had my booster… Read more »

Looks like that “gain of function” research was money well spent…or not?

Maybe they shoulda got Horizon Corp (Rainbow Six) to do their research. Where is John Clark and Ding Chavez when we need them.

These mofos tore down Bedford’s Statue, but they are damn shore following another lesson he expo taught! “Keep up the skeer!”
