    CNN)Pfizer and BioNTech said on Tuesday they're seeking emergency use authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration for a Covid-19 vaccine booster for all individuals age 18 and older. The companies are seeking an amendment to the existing EUA for booster doses for some adults.

    The companies said the submission is based on results of a Phase 3 trial involving more than 10,000 participants; it found boosters were safe and had an efficacy of 95% against symptomatic Covid-19 compared with the two-dose vaccine schedule in the period when the highly transmissible Delta was the dominant strain. Pfizer released the booster efficacy data last month; it has not yet been peer-reviewed or published.

    Unvaccinated people are 20 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than fully vaccinated people, per new state research.

    Driving the news: To determine the effects of COVID-19 vaccination in Texas, researchers at the Department of State Health Services analyzed data from electronic lab reports, death certificates and the state immunization registry.

    The analysis included a period from Jan. 15 to Oct. 1, 2021 with a focus on the four weeks from Sept. 4 to Oct. 1, which allowed researchers to measure the effect of COVID-19 vaccination as the more contagious Delta variant surged across Texas.
    What they found: Besides the dizzying difference in death rates, unvaccinated people are 13 times more likely to become infected with COVID-19 than fully vaccinated people.

    Vaccination had a strong protective effect on infections and deaths among people of all ages.
    State of play: Despite more than 10 days of lower hospital admissions, Austin Public Health officials said Friday they will remain in Stage 3 COVID risk-based guidelines ahead of the holidays.

    Nearly 80% of Americans have been exposed to false claims about Covid-19, according to survey data from the Kaiser Family Foundation, with the most common claim being that the government is exaggerating Covid-19 death counts. About 3 in 10 respondents believed or weren't sure about common vaccine misinformation regarding side effects.

    Re: Latest on the Corona Virus

    What we all need to understand is that everyone is different and thus there will be different levels of risk that individuals are willing to accept. I mean, you have your pansy ass liberals that only come out of their basement for food and water and they wear 2 masks like Fauci brainwashed, err....told then to do.


    Then you have folks like me. I was happy to get the Trump vaccine to prevent the China Virus but I'm living life wide open. I'll go to a football stadium with 60,000 fans. No mask. I will not be pawed at by liberals who try to conform me to their bullshit.

    Though vaccines are still the best line of defense against the virus, the antiviral drug could help high-risk Americans once symptoms appear
