FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf said the agency will utilize "real world evidence" in tandem with data from trials in mice to determine safety and efficacy. . However, 'New York Post' reports that in June, two experts, including Paul Offit, an FDA adviser, , spoke in opposition of rolling out new shots without testing them on humans. . I’m uncomfortable that we would move forward — that we would give millions or tens of millions of doses to people — based on mouse data, Paul Offit, FDA adviser and director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, to 'The Wall Street Journal'. Offit contends that flu shots and COVID shots can't be compared when considering the safety of slight modifications without human testing because of the different mutations and protection levels. Proponents of skipping human trials say it will prevent unnecessarily prolonging accessibility to the public. . If we waited for clinical-trial results, thank you very much, we’d get them in the spring. It takes time to do clinical trials. This is just an updating of the previous vaccine that we used, William Schaffner, professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, to 'The Wall Street Journal'

Guidance for Choosing a 4th COVID Shot or the Omicron Booster

Guidance for Choosing , a 4th COVID Shot , or the Omicron Booster. As other nations begin to offer Omicron-specific booster shots, . those in the U.S. may be wondering if they should get a fourth booster shot now... ... or wait for a booster that is tailored to the highly-contagious strain to be available in the U.S. Currently, only those over the age of 50 or those between 12 and 50 who are immunocompromised are eligible for a second booster shot. Currently, only those over the age of 50 or those between 12 and 50 who are immunocompromised are eligible for a second booster shot. While the Omicron booster should be available in the U.S. sometime this fall. health experts recommend that if you're eligible for the booster you should get one as soon as possible. For those who have not been vaccinated or recently had COVID in the past six months. experts recommend a booster in that scenario as well. For those who are not eligible for the booster and have not opted to get one, . experts say waiting for the Omicron booster this fall is a viable option. They also caution that while the Omicron booster will be made specifically to combat that variant, it won't be full-proof protection. Boosters against Omicron are not going to be a magic shield, Dr. Shane Crotty, La Jolla Institute for Immunology, via 'The New York Times'. For those who have received a second booster shot and are considering getting the Omicron booster as well, experts say the extra shot will not make much difference. If you get a booster now and you get another booster Sept. 15, don’t expect that second shot to do anything, Dr. Shane Crotty, La Jolla Institute for Immunology, via 'The New York Times'

The United Kingdom has become the first country to approve vaccine boosters specifically designed to counter the omicron variant of COVID-19. NPR reports that the decision paves the way for people in the U.K. to receive their shots early in the fall season. The Moderna vaccine booster is "bivalent," meaning that it combines two different versions of the vaccine. Half of the mix is aimed at the original strain of COVID, while the other half is formulated to fight the original omicron variant. What this bivalent vaccine gives us is a sharpened tool in our armory to help protect us against this disease as the virus continues to evolve, Dr. June Raine, Head of the U.K.'s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, via NPR.
