CTT #43: To booster or not to booster?

In this episode of Coronavirus: The Truth, Jeremy Corr and Dr. Robert Pearl dive deep into the ever-thickening plotline around booster shots.

Drug companies like Pfizer are pushing for them. Government agencies like the CDC and FDA are pushing back. Some critics say drug companies are acting out of greed and not in the interest of the public. Others are turning to the data for answers, noting that new variants and uncertainty around antibodies should drive the discussion.
