University South Carolina Professor Of Medicine Stresses That Americans Should Not Be Taking Extra COVID Doses

As reported in The Daily Beast, Dr. Krutika Kuppalli, an infectious-disease physician and assistant professor of medicine at the University of South Carolina, stresses that Americans (at this time) should not be taking extra COVID-19 doses.

“There is no good data to support this currently, and if we are going to do this, we need scientific data to drive this practice,” Kuppalli said. “I would rather see additional doses of the vaccine go to people in other countries who have not even had one dose of the vaccine, as we need to get the rates of COVID-19 down around the world to prevent more variants from developing. If we can do that, then we won’t need booster doses.”
