Are Booster Jabs Worthwhile? WHO not Supportive

re: ethics in medicine

Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it.

I don’t trust anything the WHO says, but that doesn’t mean their reasoning is always without merit.

WHO: Interim statement on COVID-19 vaccine booster doses

Dec 1 2021 version

There are several reasons why COVID-19 vaccine booster doses may be needed: (i) waning protection against infection or disease, in particular severe disease, over time (i.e., waning immunity), (ii) reduced protection against variant(s) of concern (VOC), or (iii) inadequate protection from the currently recommended primary series for some risk groups for which evidence from the Phase 3 clinical trials may have been lacking. The rationale for booster doses may differ by vaccine product, epidemiological setting, risk group, and vaccine coverage rates.

Factors to consider 

1. Waning immunity

Neither an immune correlate of protection nor an immune correlate for the duration of protection has been established to date...

2. Vaccine effectiveness  

 Data are currently insufficient to determine if there is a significant decline in vaccine effectiveness against any form of clinical illness from SARS-CoV-2 infection beyond 6 months after vaccination. However, some reduction in vaccine effectiveness has been reported for some VOCs...

3. Global vaccine supply and global and national equity

National vaccination programme policy decisions to add a booster dose should take into account the strength of evidence regarding the need for these doses and global availability of vaccines...

Conclusions

...

Introducing booster doses should be firmly evidence-driven and targeted to the population groups in greatest need. The rationale for implementing booster doses should be guided by evidence on waning vaccine effectiveness, in particular a decline in protection against severe disease in the general population or in high risk populations, or due to a circulating VOC. To date, the evidence remains limited and inconclusive on any widespread need for booster doses following a primary vaccination series...

WIND: President Cornholio says everyone should get their booster.

Strength of evidence” seems to be a fresh new concept over at the WHO versus their stonewalling as to the origins of the virus. What I cannot understand is why the CCP puppetmasters would go along with this... to weaken the West perhaps? Maybe strength of evidence could be applied to masks, and Vitamin D and magnesium as well?
