The reason Sha’Carri Richardson won’t run the 100 meters in Tokyo is only partially about marijuana.

Instead, it disqualified her Trials performance, and Team USA’s selection standards say its three 100m […]

Fauci says Pfizer CEO apologized for not giving warning on booster announcement

Yahoo News 11 July, 2021 - 04:00pm

The big picture: After Pfizer's announcement, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration published a joint statement saying Americans do not need boosters yet.

"Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a booster shot at this time," the CDC and FDA wrote in the statement.

Driving the news: Blitzer asked Fauci about concerns over a "lack of coordination" between the federal government and vaccine companies following the communication mishap.

"We are on the same page," Fauci told Blitzer. "They came out with the announcement without giv[ing] us a heads up."

"Quite frankly, the CEO, who is a really good guy, got on the phone with me last night and apologized ... for not letting us know that he was going to do it ahead of time."

"The FDA, CDC and NIH are now gathering information through clinical studies and laboratory studies to determine if and when we might need boosters. But that's not right now."

Go deeper: Pfizer to seek FDA authorization for third dose of coronavirus vaccine

OTTAWA (Reuters) -Canada on Friday said that while booster COVID-19 shots may be needed, it has received no request from Pfizer to approve one, and health authorities are currently studying the duration of protection from two doses. Pfizer and BioNTech plan to ask U.S. and European regulators within weeks to authorize a booster dose of its COVID-19 vaccine, based on evidence of greater risk of infection six months after inoculation and the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant. "Emerging data to date shows good immunity in most people out to 9 months after receiving 2 vaccine doses," Canada's public health agency said in a statement.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -Israel said on Sunday it will begin offering a third dose of Pfizer Inc's vaccine to adults with weak immune systems but it was still weighing whether to make the booster available to the general public. The rapid spread of the Delta variant has sent vaccination rates in Israel back up as new infections have risen over the past month from single digits to around 450 a day, and the country has moved to fast-track its next Pfizer shipment. Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said that effective immediately, adults with impaired immune systems who had received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine could get a booster shot, with a decision pending on wider distribution.
