[OH THE DUPLICITY] FDA says two studies showing omicron boosters weren't much better than old Covid shots were too small to come to any conclusions


  • Scientists at Columbia and Harvard, in two independent studies, found the new boosters and the old shots basically performed the same against omicron BA.5.
  • Dr. Peter Marks, head of the FDA’s vaccine division, said the new studies are small and subject to limitations. Data from larger well-controlled studies are coming soon, he added.
  • The FDA encouraged people to get boosted ahead of “the wave of Covid-19 that appears to be coming,” Marks said.
