All through the article I found out that the Centers for Disease, Control and Prevention is trying to boost a shot for COVID-19 allowing people to mix and match vaccines for their booster dose. The program is for people who tend to be sick from COVID and want more protection from it even after they’ve taken their shot.

From the article: “The Moderna booster shot against COVID-19 got the green light last week after lengthy debate that culminated in the FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authorizing the drug for a third dose. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be available to everyone — at least not yet. We’ll walk you through who’s eligible to receive the Moderna booster shot, when, and what the deal is with mixing and matching vaccine brands.” This dose that we’re looking for to treat people who cannot do so for themselves is very unlikely and it’s unpredictable. The COVID_19 allowing people to mix and match vaccines is so sketchy to me and we need more shots tested before we can move on to what’s next.

From the article: “These recommendations are another example of our fundamental commitment to protect as many people as possible from COVID-19,” said CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky in a statement. “The evidence shows that all three COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States are safe – as demonstrated by the over 400 million vaccine doses already given. And, they are all highly effective in reducing the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, even in the midst of the widely circulating delta variant.” COVID-19 is really a problem for us Americans and U.S citizens! We have to be really careful of certain circumstances but for that the shot was verified for 400 million people is really a miracle and for doctors a required doctors approval!. Then this really just shows that this shot must be really effective to people or can rotate as an addiction if this dose is not treated properly.

From the article: “Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose,” the CDC said in a release. “Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others may prefer to get a different booster.” Some people may require certain vaccines because of their preference; nobody is getting preferential treatment. In this America and especially in this America, people will need more specific types of vaccines because of certain people or others that they might have received their virus from. It’s no joke if you are not eligible to receive the vaccine then it’s best that you don’t and they might prefer to get a different booster type. It just matters where the virus is affecting you in your whole body and wellness system. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to do so!!!

From the article: The CDC also stressed that making sure people get an initial COVID-19 vaccine remains a priority, saying that more than 65 million Americans remain unvaccinated.” It is important to get vaccinated and people choose not to see that. But a time will come when people will need the vaccine in their future preferences or life because the only unrealistic thing to do at this time for your wellness is not to plan forward and people MUST see that!

From the article: “How will people understand if they really should get this when they are at increased risk, if we don’t make it clearer?” said “Dr. Sarah Long, noting that she’s relying on additional clinical considerations the CDC will make about boosters in the coming days.” It’s really careless to think that we can only get the dose ONLY when we’re finally sick and it does not get any clearer than that to be honest. If people are not getting notified of the COVID problem now then they might as well not come out of their homes.

From the article: “Experts also expressed approval of the mix-and-match approach because it may allow for more resourceful use of booster vaccine administration (as providers hopefully won’t have to waste as many doses once they open a bottle of vaccine), as well as allow health care workers to work more directly with patients.

I feel like this is a secure and complete and effective way for people to take the shot. People need to seek help and get it if their health is poor and that’s ALL.


My comments and thoughts: This article relates to health and science because people are dying every day because of COVID-19; people refuse to seek help even for younger ones due to the tragic death of their parents. What interested me in choosing this article was the title because as soon as I saw ‘ booster shot’ I knew it was about the virus; I saw that they might have a solution to treat patients. My opinion of this article is that your health should be your main priority in life because as you can see we don’t have many options when it comes to taking the COVID-19 shot and it is just about getting the shot or hoping to benefit from it basically. Something that I learned from reading this article is that life is short and wellness/corona is no joke and people should very much consider this booster because we are humans not machines; we cannot control the virus unless we take charge of it. The only wrong thing to do right now is wait but to ONLY protect our loved ones is the only cure you can achieve and hitting a pause to health is your only path to the coronavirus. SEEK HELP AND DON’T WAIT!!!.
