We got boosted and got our flu shot in early September. We caught covid in May after being fully boosted, but were pleased it was mild covid. We would not have wanted to have covid if we were not fully boosted. We realize vaccines are not 100 pct effective at preventing illness but the vaccinations did their job keeping us from ending up in the hospital
A number of posts in reliable places indicate that this booster was approved on the basis of tests on a small number of mice and no humans–that its safety and efficacy are unknown. Is this in fact true? If you don’t answer in some detail it will confirm the suspicions of those who believe the FDA is being reckless at best. (I speak as someone who eagerly accepted the original covid vaccinations and booster.)
