The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s advisory panel unanimously approved a booster shot of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for select groups of people. However, the FDA is delaying a decision on authorizing Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine for 12-to-17-year-olds to assess whether the shot may lead to heightened risk of Myocarditis, a rare inflammatory heart condition. Then on Friday, vaccine advisers to the US Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously to recommend a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine at least two months after people 18 and older got the first dose. Reason: lower effectiveness compared to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. ———— Weather continues to be problematic this weekend from Arkansas to New York with heavy rains and possible tornadoes. ——————— Over 10,000 John Deere employees began their strike at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday at 14 U.S. plants in Iowa, Illinois, and Kansas. ——————- You have no doubt heard that nearly 60 cargo ships are stuck floating outside the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Because of that, U.S. President Biden announced that the Port of LA will begin operating around the clock 24/7 to make sure Americans can get the goods they need. ———————————- On Friday, Adele’s music video “Easy on Me” became the most streamed song in a single day on Spotify … and had 41 million views on YouTube. It’s the lead single from her upcoming album, 30, which drops November 15. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/sabah-fakhoury/message
