So the pandemic will be finally over in USA by end of the year or next year? As the pandemic continues for rest of the world until every people got vaccinated. Also will NJ Transit will lift masks for trains and buses later this year?It isn't going to happen like that.
The CDC is recommending a booster for the immuno-compromised, not for the general population.
There is no data so far that the vaccines we have for the general population are "wearing off." And until that data is confirmed, which can take months and months, a booster won't be recommended by the CDC for the general population.
The U.S. has put the order in for boosters 'just in case," just like for the initial Project Warp Speed.
A new variant that is resistant to or 'hides from' the current vaccines can change all that. But... it's a case of semantics if a newly formulated vaccine for a new variant is really a "booster" or a just a "new vaccine."
