In a move that surprised no one, Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared to change his tune slightly when it came to a vaccine booster shot yesterday. He said in an interview that he thought that a particular subset of the population might need yet another jab after all.
This change of heart comes a matter of weeks after he’d previously said, “given the data and the information we have, we do not need to give people a third shot, a boost…” At the time, Pfizer had been suggesting that another dose might be in order.
Yesterday, the so-called expert flipped the script, saying that a particular demographic could require the booster after all.
“Those who are transplant patients, cancer chemotherapy, auto-immune disease, that are on immunosuppressant regimens, those are the kind of individuals that if there’s going to be a third booster, which might likely happen, would be among first the vulnerable,” he said.
He continued: “It’s a dynamic situation. It’s a work in progress, it evolves like in so many other areas of the pandemic. You’ve got to look at the data.”
