COVID booster shots: Do boosters hurt your immune system? – Deseret News

More COVID-19 vaccine booster shots might not be the proper way forward for dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, according to the European Medicines Agency.

What happened: European Union regulators said too many COVID-19 vaccine booster shots could affect our immune system, exposing us to even more sickness, according to Bloomberg.

  • Booster shots every fourth months might “eventually weaken the immune system and tire out people,” Bloomberg reported.

What to do: Countries might want to leave more time between booster shots and make sure they’re given out during specific cold seasons in their country, the EMA said.

Driving the news: This comes as speculation has started about a fourth COVID-19 vaccine shot to tackle the omicron variant.

Be smart: There is a fourth shot available for immunocompromised people, as I reported for the Deseret News.

What’s next: Scientists have started to see signs that the omicron wave is peaking. Keeping an eye on the trends may offer a clue as to whether or not a fourth shot will be available for all Americans.
