The One-Minute Meeting
The CDC and FDA are downplaying an alert that Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 boosters could increase the risk of strokes for people over age 65. Upon getting the alert, the CDC scoured massive databases of patient results and said the risk of strokes being caused by the vaccine is “very low.” The CDC says vaccinations and boosters cut the chances of severe COVID-19 illness and death.
Big drug store chains that were running out of children’s cold and flu medications say they no longer need to limit sales. The flu outbreak nationwide is starting to wane and only a couple of states now have “very high” flu caseloads.
Egg prices are extremely high. $7 or $8 for a dozen is not unusual in some places, while nationwide the average price has risen at least 50% over a year ago. Blame the bird flu that killed or forced farmers to kill millions of chickens. The holidays are the prime baking season in America so both demand and prices should begin to drop soon, experts say.
Only 10 states now have one party in their governor’s office and another party in at least one house of the state’s legislative bodies. 2022 changed the political power structure of enough states to create a high water mark for one-party control in state governments. Most of the one-party rule states are controlled by Republicans.
