Its a very high bar. Covid "is good for 12 year olds and others" in the same way Pfizer is. To use your extremely imprecise wording.

No vaccine is "good for you" beyond what protection it might provide. There are always risks involved.

Both are unlikely to harm that particular group given the limited data we have.

Note that this is uncertain enough that Pfizer does not have liability, nor will it have liability for as long as the drugs are being given on emergency use authorization.

12 years and older*

In other words its authorized for anyone older than 12.

In other words, EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION. Interim rules as they call it in Canada.

Does it not worry you at all that you cannot sue the producer in theory at least? Suing is what passes for socialized medicine in your country.

Here we have other means to recoup financial loss if something goes wrong.

Emergency use authorization is actually rather a dangerous choice for you to make personally. Those class action suits are almost as good as stimmy checks.

http://www...d-19-booster-shots-2021-05-13/

COVID-19 vaccine developers are making ever bolder assertions that the world will need yearly booster shots, or new vaccines to tackle concerning coronavirus variants, but some scientists question when, or whether, such shots will be needed.

In interviews with Reuters, more than a dozen influential infectious disease and vaccine development experts said there is growing evidence that a first round of global vaccinations may offer enduring protection against the coronavirus and its most worrisome variants discovered to date.

Some of these scientists expressed concern that public expectations around COVID-19 boosters are being set by pharmaceutical executives rather than health specialists, although many agreed that preparing for such a need as a precaution was prudent.

We should nationalize AstraZenca and publically flog the members of their board. Then build a prison labor camp on the moon and send them there. We build it especially for them, we send no one else there and once they are dead, we dismantle it and erase all trace of it. And then.. ok I am getting a little carried away by rage. But we should at least write a strongly worded tweet.

Habebe

Mon May 17 01:59:37
DC is 46% black, but only 31% of the Vaccinnes distributed went to the black population.

Well below their weight.

Rural people (More likely Trumpers) also have lower vax rates generally*


But it always seemed disengenous when the news will talk the Trumpers holding us back by pointing out Midsissippi and Georgia etc. Are having low rates, and concluding it must.be just the Trumpers, when these are also the blackest states.

While separately bring up "the HC divide" and blacks being reasonably hesitant.

My only complaint to Bidens admin. Handling of vaccinne is the lack of a push towards rural, lack and females citizens to get the vaccinne. Many states have been coming up with novel ideas.

Harris in particular has been a roadblock for some of these groups being an antivaxxer herself only begrudgingly accepting vaccinne as good.

12-17 year olds make up 6.6% of the population and only 17% have gotten at least one shot so far. That cohort should have a healthy effect on the vaccination numbers, though not an overwhelming one.
Rugian

Wed May 19 18:18:24
The marked slowdown in the growth of "fully vaccinated" people is a point of concern - logically that number should still be growing at a relatively high rate as more people get their second shot. The fact that it's not growing quickly suggests that more people are skipping out on the second shot than I would have guessed.

Many people who have had a significant bout of natural covid are being advised by their doctors to only get 1 shot of moderna or pfizer, assuming that their natural defenses acts much like a first shot.

Those should probably be counted as fully vaxed, though only represents some 3-5% of the population.
