Fourth dose of vaccine... “disappointment” number among Americans

Fourth dose of vaccine… “disappointment” number among Americans

According to an editorial in The Washington Post, Americans Accepting too little of what is known with the fourth doseor a second booster dose.

Health data reveal United States Taking a fourth dose did not exceed 8.8 percent of the relevant group, that is, those between the ages of 50 and 64.

For the middle-aged (65+), the rate of taking the fourth dose of the vaccine is no more than 22 percent, and the “Washington Post” described this situation as “unfortunate” and steps should be taken to improve it.

So far, health officials in the United States have not approved a second booster dose for people under 50, except for those with immunocompromised conditions.

Health officials in the US are currently considering whether to allow people under 50 to take a fourth dose, particularly in light of the rise in infections caused by the two submutants of “omicron”.

As the number of hospitalizations for “Covid 19” in the US continues to rise, concerns are being raised about this poor vaccine uptake.

Statistics show that more than two-thirds of people in the age group (18-49) took two doses of the vaccine, but only 27 percent of them took the first booster dose, the third.

Since the start of the vaccine against Corona, the United States has seen a fierce debate about “vaccine freedom”, especially among the right-wing and conspiracy theorists who express doubts about the effectiveness of vaccines and claim that they are harmful to human health.
