This is very real. These individuals, 10 million of them in the U.S., may need weekly boosters until some form of immunity is realized...

It's very real in every country where there are transplant patients and other immunocompromised people. The fact that the Japanese government has decided to remove priority for this group of people, while extending it to Uncle Tom Cobbley and all, specially Olympic staff, media, as well as high school students and uni students, because exams, because jobhunting, while making anyone 18-64 with a health condition just take their chances with healthy people, is just so wrong. There has been zero information for this group, they have just been left hanging. Never mind the fact that they might do better with 3 doses. I can just see Japan arranging that. Not.
