Randy Larson, 1866554626, Steve discussed on Jim Bohannon

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Not only will you have immunity, but this thing that some people are kind of. It's not a great scientific term, but they're kind of thrown around this. Super immunity idea that, um, but I think the main thing we're trying to get across here is just because you think you had covid infection. Or maybe you've had it laboratory confirmed. That doesn't mean you still shouldn't get the vaccine. Now some scientists and physicians and this is the kind of discussion you have with your personal position, not me. But talk to your personal position. Some are saying Maybe you shouldn't if you've had a laboratory confirmed infection. And then you get the first vaccine. You might not get the second one because you may have a little bit stronger Reaction to that, Uh, but that's a discussion for you and your position, but certainly get the first one. All right now, then, uh, boosters we've heard, Of course, the boosters were available. And that, uh, that, uh, I've heard various things about about their recommendation as to whether or not that is a good idea or not. I have to do a personally have a somewhat compromised immune system, so I've not had to wait. I've gotten a third of the Moderna series, which I was informed by the way as I got it is. In fact, it was the second shot all over again. But another dosage. So tell us more about these boosters and where that discussion stands. I will. But first I'm going to ask you a question. What kind of reaction that you had to have booster. I've never had any reaction to any of these shots whatsoever. I mean, even even the arm wasn't sore. I mean, I suppose if I punched my arm that it would have been a little sore, But I mean nothing. Zero Nada. That's great, and you're kind of the majority. You know, my arm was a little bit sore after my first game, but you know nothing to write home about. But okay the boosters, and it's interesting that two of the very senior people that these vaccines approved as quickly as they did in everything they have decided it's time to retire from FDA. They just had an article published today. In the land set, which is kind of like the journal American Medical Association, except the United Kingdom, and they're saying the general public should not be getting boosters now clearly for You know people like France, you and I, You know they're older and over 70 and the mean compromise or whatever that it's a good idea, but both saying and this is still open for debate. And about about the boosters. Now, they it hasn't yet be a has made a final ruling on this. I think President Biden got just a little bit over out in front of the Steve there. When the announcements about two weeks ago, the room gonna have boosters. Uh, they're producing them and we got lots of vaccines. And so that's good. There's plenty of it available, but I don't think we're quite there yet in getting the approval except For people that are particularly people over 70. I've even heard some people say over 60 and particularly with immune compromise. Now that means like people who've had solid organ transplants, a good head cancer. Therapy and certain other conditions. Were there pretty severely immune compromise, and those boosters could be the difference between life and death. So for them, it's a great thing, and I think we'll get the final word probably in early October, about Who else should be getting all right More to come with Randy Larson.
