Skip to comments.CDC: Bivalent COVID Vaccines Stop Illness From XBB.1.5 — And Pfizer lab data show better neutralization against latest variants with bivalent shot

Currently authorized bivalent COVID-19 boosters demonstrated similar protection against symptomatic illness from the XBB/XBB.1.5 Omicron subvariants as from BA.5-related subvariants, according to a CDC study.
From December 2022 to January 2023, the bivalent boosters' vaccine effectiveness (VE) against symptomatic infection was a similar 48% versus XBB/XBB.1.5-related strains and 52% versus BA.5-related sublineages, reported Ruth Link-Gelles, PhD, of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, and colleagues in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reportopens in a new tab or window (MMWR).
Meanwhile, Pfizer's updated booster demonstrated superior neutralizing antibody activity compared with the company's original product against all the latest Omicron subvariants, including XBB.1, according to Kena Swanson, PhD, of Pfizer Vaccine Research and Development in Pearl River, New York and colleagues, writing in the New England Journal of Medicineopens in a new tab or window. Their findings contradict earlier researchopens in a new tab or window from other labs that found no significant difference in neutralizing activity with the bivalent over the monovalent vaccine.
According to the latest estimates from the CDC, XBB.1.5 is responsible for 49.1% of new COVID-19 cases in the U.S., while XBB is responsible for another 3.3%....
..When the CDC researchers broke down VE by age group, protection against symptomatic illness from BA.5- and XBB/XBB.1.5-related sublineages tended to be higher among younger individuals:
18-49 years: 52% and 49%, respectively 50-64 years: 43% and 40% 65 and older: 37% and 43%...

DON’T TOUCH THAT CRAP!
EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH the latest Project Veritas’ exposure of Pfeizer evil at the highest levels. If you trust anything these demons say afterwards no one can help you.
Not only no, but hell no.
The CDC has ruined its credibility. And that’s a shame because somewhere down the line their advice will be needed. Clean house, CDC. Put in new people, and don’t be afraid to admit your past mistakes.
But of course that will never happen. Government officials are way too arrogant to even consider such a thing.
I do not believe a word these a^^holes have to say.
Trust Pfizer? What are they smoking?
I will defend myself and my family.
They are really hoping we are idiots
Give them over the counter IVERMECTIN. Heals more illnesses than Covid-19. .
Ziff Davis, I miss simpler times when they published Home and Educational Computing, filled with Commodore-64/VIC-20 code printed on the page for us to type in.
Just get the cold. It’s over in a week or less. I did. After 2.5 years of hearing about the China flu I got it. No big deal. Never was jabbed. Never will be jabbed
I will never listen to what the CDC says, they are just a public relations outlet for big pharma.
Poor little Pfizer was only able to increase their revenues from $41 billion to $99 billion in a year, so what do you expect them to do to increase it to $.2 Trillion this year? Gotta do something, don’t they?
You want proof? Go watch the latest Project Veritas video. These people are disgusting.
Credibility = 0.
