Thank you Pfizer for kindly providing the research data which shows that your product is necessary.

Lol, big pharma undermines its own vaccines by advocating for subsequent booster shots. It’s almost as if they have a different motive than conquering the virus.

If you're basing your evaluation on rumor, then you're correct. But if you're basing your evaluation on data, then your premise above is silly.

To bolster its case, Pfizer pointed the FDA to data from Israel, which began offering boosters over the summer.

That study tracked about 1 million people 60 and older and found those who got the extra shot were far less likely to become infected soon afterward.

When they started administering boosters in Israel, the cases did go down for a few days, but then shot right back up. Are they all unboosted?

Do you think vaccines are the only factor that affect how the pandemic spreads? there is a reason why epidemiological analysis is necessary to actually understand this, an unvalid asumption (that every other factor remained the same except for boosters, or that the cases were in the people that recieved them) are terribly obvious mistakes that make people that are not experts reach completely wrong conclusions.

What? Definitely not. I made it very clear for quite a while that vaccines actually have very little effect on the spread. Though some like to give the vaccines all the credit when case reductions happen to coincide with vaccinations.

No you did not, you only made it clear that you believe it so, and that this belief is not based on anything but your personal opinion. The expert's opinion is the opposite, and they have scientiic data to prove it. Specially when they do analysis that do include epidemiological analysis instead of just assuming things without proving them as you keep doing.
