Seems like ATAGI doesn't agree with you.

Nor Pfizer.
The opinion of the people selling the product, the product the public have funded the purchase of to the degree that there are millions of surplus doses, should not be considered when determining whether the product is appropriate or fit for purpose.

The primary benefit of the vaccines have always been to minimize the hospitalization rate. They have been sold to people as preventing transmission, to protect grandma, but it's always been designed that they keep you out of hospital as much as possible.

We currently have vaccine producers advocating more of their product, on segments they sponsor in the media, to gain momentum to push governments to spend more money using alpha variant products on a new omicron variant before they had any data on the variant.

This is while they have had a delta variant specific booster for months.

ATAGI is a regulatory body.

You claimed that the Lancet and WHO had a particular stance on booster duration.

The first is absurd for the reasons detailed, the second is fungible.

Regardless, you are a rolled gold moron.
No, I said you should read the latest from The Lancet and the WHO. If you can't keep up, I'll have to leave you behind.

Time for ATAGI to follow the UK's lead and halve requisite booster interval, for states with Omicron outbreaks.

Feds and states need to dedicate a herculean amount of effort and resources to a boister drive in NSW and Vic, then wherever experiences an Omicron outbreak.

Isn't it a shame we have to have a discussion about bringing forward boosters earlier than their best efficacy to counter an outbreak.

If only somebody had ordered enough vaccines just 2-3 months earlier.

Very much feels like a race, trying to get Christmas in before cases hit 10k per day!
