The COVID World post date: January 13th, 2022
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has pushed back against endless booster jabs, saying it could end up causing “immune response” problems. The agency has urged European countries to increase the time between booster shots and also recommends that governments coincide the shots with the cold and flu season.
Marco Cavaleri, who is the head of EMA’s biological health threats and vaccines strategy, said that if the current policy of rolling out new booster shots every four months were to continue, it could end up weakening the immune system:
“We will end up potentially having problems with immune response and the immune response may end up not being as good as we would like it to be, so we should be careful in not overloading the immune system with repeated immunisation.”
Commenting on the current EU government policy of pushing out a second booster, Cavaleri said there is no data to suggest such a course of action is preferable. He added that governments need to think about how they can transition from the current pandemic setting to a more endemic setting.
“While use of additional boosters can be part of contingency plans, repeated vaccinations within short intervals would not represent a sustainable long-term strategy.
[It] can be done once, or maybe twice, but it’s not something that we think should be repeated constantly.”
Cavaleri also said at the press conference that there is no way to know the number of antibodies someone needs to be ‘protected‘ from COVID, saying that although there is a relationship between neutralizing antibodies and protection, it is impossible to know where the ‘threshold‘ is that determines whether someone will get COVID or not.
Whether the EMA’s recommendations will change the course of European governments remains to be seen, as countries in the EU steam ahead into COVID tyranny, with no regard for the consequences.
