The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director signed off on the recommendation that all Americans aged 6 months and older receive the updated COVID booster on Tuesday amid rising cases and hospitalizations across the country.

It comes just a day after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized and approved the new shot.

The boosters made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna were formulated to target variants that are currently circulating, which are related to XBB – an offshoot of the omicron variant.

The advisory panel made the recommendation, which was then approved by director Dr. Mandy Cohen.

"Vaccination remains critical to public health and continued protection against serious consequences of COVID-19, including hospitalization and death," Dr. Peter Marks, director of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said in a statement.

What would you do for a Klondike Bar?
Would you lay in the street and get hit by a car?
Would you cut off your nuts and put them in a jar?

What would you do-oo-ooo, to conform?

It's amazing Yahooberg has not banned me.

“I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

Good news for all of us who never got the first shot of the "vaccine". We're ineligible for any boosters! Logic prohibits it!

Having come down with some crud after my latest trip out of state, I can tell you that if these vaccines worked, I might have signed up for one. Seeing as how they do not, and this shit that I am dealing with is the latest Covid, I sincerely doubt I am going to be signing up for anything anytime soon.

Not while I still have a stockpile of good bourbon anyway.
