With updated COVID-19 booster shots developed to better treat new variants becoming more available, San Mateo County health officials are imploring the public to take up the earliest opportunity to be treated.

“We see the arrival of the new booster as another hopeful milestone with the data the FDA considered in its approval strongly suggesting improved protection against currently circulating variants,” read Chief of Health Louise Rogers’ Letter from the Chief, published and shared with the Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

Remember, for these booster shots, you are the guinea pig. These shots have not been previously tested on human subjects, only mice. With the multitude of new data coming out each day regarding side effects related to COVID jabs please make an informed decision before subjecting yourself to these experimental and untested boosters. I doubt Moderna or Pfizer will pay your hospital or funeral costs if you have a bad reaction.
