The Head of WHO Says “Some Countries Are Using Boosters to Kill Children” — VIDEO
"Which is not right."
I give you Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the 8th Director-General of the World Health Organization:

Transcript (with extra context):
There is new evidence emerging now of its benefits, especially with elderly groups, senior citizens, especially above 65 and above 60. So if it’s going to be used, it’s better to focus on those groups who have risk of severe disease and deaths rather than, as we some countries are using to give boosters to kill children.
Which is not right.
Then the equity issue comes here. Instead of boosting a child in high income countries, it’s better to vaccinate the elderly in countries who have the elders who have not been vaccinated, even the primary vaccines. So the equity issue should also come into into play.”
I love how he adds “which is not right”, at the end. I agree Tedros, if some countries are “using boosters to kill children” that is indeed “not right”. I would go as far as to say killing children is ‘very not right’.
Tedros, would it be possible for you to come forward and name the specific countries that are doing this? And why not?
