I do not like the idea that there is no human data on this booster, yet.

But, of course, there is no human data on the yearly flu vaccines, either, until after the fact.

The video says that Covid is now less dangerous than the flu but that isn’t true.

In a bad flu year about 50,000 Americans die.

America is on track for 125,000 deaths from Omicron this year.

There still hasn’t been enough time or knowledge about Covid for scientists to predict the next Covid variant or to make a vaccine for a future variant.

At any rate, the flu vaccine isn’t always very effective. It is a guessing game.

There are side effects from the Covid vaccine such as headache etc just as there are from the shingles vaccine and some other vaccines. But they are short lived.

The flu vaccine caused my myoclonic seizures and a relapse of Lyme right away. The Covid vaccine gave me a 12 hour headache. Big difference.

Still, I would like to wait for the human trials of this booster.

I know my friends who have recently had Omicron are waiting. But not everyone has had Omicron including me. I know my mom will get the booster and I am okay with her decision.

The human trials are going on right now.

Well, Lymetoo, every drug used for humans needs to be tested.

Would you take a drug or supplement that hadn’t been tested on humans? I wouldn’t.

Think of all the antibiotics you took for Lyme. They were tested on humans.
