COVID-19 cases continue to decline in Florida – Tampa, Florida

Tampa, Florida 2021-10-18 05:10:41 –

Tampa, Florida — For the eighth straight week, the positive rate of COVID-19 cases in Sunshine continues to decline. Currently, the week of October 8th is 3.8%.

This Week’s New Feature, FDA Vaccine Advisory Board Unanimously recommended booster shot for a single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine, As the fight to curb the incident continues.

“We are at the end of the delta wave,” said Dr. Thomas Unnash, a prominent professor of public health at the USF. He says he is “optimistic” about where we are heading.

“We think we might start seeing this move to a more endemic type … this is a kind of common flu that infects people but they never get super ill. It will start to move to the type one. ” Dr. Unnasch.

As more people reach herd immunity through vaccination and natural infections, fewer hosts are infected with the virus.

“I think what we’re most likely to see is that we’ll actually see a few more outbreaks, but they won’t be the big waves we’ve seen before. These are spotfires. It will be like, “Dr. Unnasch said.

Dr. Unnasch continues to seek vaccination as the best way to protect himself from the virus as he approaches herd immunity. He also encourages those who qualify for booster shots to get it.

Just last week, the FDA’s Vaccine Advisory Board recommended booster shots to all people who received a single Johnson & Johnson vaccination.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Advisor of the White House, said:

“Everyone knew it wasn’t as effective as getting two shots, and now they found,” Oh, if you give two shots of Johnson and Johnson, it’s the same as an mRNA vaccine. It’s about 95% protection, “says Dr. Unnasch.

Both Dr. Fauci and Dr. Unnasch said some studies suggest that J & J recipients will get booster shots of mRNA-based vaccines.

“They seem to be even more effective in boosting immunity through the first shot of J & J,” said Dr. Unnasch.

He states that J & J recipients are still protected by a single action, but boosters offer world-class protection.

The FDA is expected to make an official decision this week based on the panel’s recommendations. If you go to the CDC from there and everyone agrees that you need boosters, they could start as early as this week.
