Data for Newly Authorized COVID-19 Boosters Based on Mice, Not Humans

2022-09-01, by Zachary Stieber

The preclinical data for the just-authorized COVID-19 booster shots are based on just mice, not humans, because U.S. authorities believe waiting for human trial data would have made the updated boosters outdated.

The data for Pfizer’s booster was based on just 8 mice, Pfizer scientists told the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) vaccine advisory panel in June. The data for Moderna’s booster was based on 16 to 20 mice...

...The FDA declined to require human trial data for authorization, and granted authorization for both updated boosters on Aug. 31.


Dr. Monica Gandhi, a professor of medicine at University of California, San Francisco, said that she thinks the updated booster “has the potential to increase antibodies in humans to the circulating subvariant (mainly BA.5 at this point), but to be fair, we need to note that we only have data in mice of increased antibodies at this point.”

We do not have human data on this new booster, either antibody data or clinical data. However, there is biological plausibility that these updated boosters will curb cases by increasing antibodies as we enter the winter,” Gandhi told The Epoch Times in an email.


DIGLLOYD: it used to take 10 years to fully approve a new vaccine.

Follow The Science and take the whole family in to get booster shots, which should do something for you for the current common-cold-grade variant for at least a month or two.
