As­traZeneca’s Pas­cal So­ri­ot says Covid-19 boost­ers may not be for every­one — re­port

As­traZeneca CEO Pas­cal So­ri­ot re­port­ed­ly thinks that Covid-19 boost­er shots for young and healthy peo­ple may not be wise.

So­ri­ot told the UK Tele­graph re­search sug­gests that vac­cines give healthy peo­ple pro­tec­tion against se­vere dis­ease for a “long time,” mean­ing most will not need a boost­er jab to avoid se­vere com­pli­ca­tions from the virus. He al­so not­ed gov­ern­ments buy­ing boost­er shots wouldn’t be a good use of tax­pay­er mon­ey.
