Do We Need a Third Covid Shot?

Description

The rise of the Delta variant has prompted a thorny question: Do we need a booster dose of the vaccine for Covid-19? Vaccine makers think so, but regulators are yet to be convinced.

Principles are also at stake: Should richer countries be talking about administering extra doses when so many people around the world are yet to receive even a single shot?

Guest: Rebecca Robbins, a business reporter covering Covid-19 vaccines for The New York Times.

We knew since day one boosters would be needed in 6 months. Why should we get sick because Republicans refuse to get any or they are not available globally. this is going to be Biden's Katrina. We have vacs in the US that are expiring. Bullshit. Look at Isreal. They all need Boosters. Because the government said it's not needed insurance companies won't pay for it.
