Pfizer decided to inform the US authorities on the need for a third dose of its vaccine

Pfizer intends to inform the US authorities shortly about the need to use the third (booster) injection of the coronavirus vaccine. This is reported by The Washington Post.

Presumably, this will be announced at a meeting with the heads of relevant state institutions on Monday, July 12.

The booster dose, which is administered six months after vaccination, allows you to produce 5-10 times more antibodies than after the standard two injections, according to Pfizer researchers. The company also expressed concern about the decrease in the effectiveness of the vaccine as a shield against morbidity, while its effectiveness in preventing serious diseases remains high.

Now the US medical authorities believe that the vaccinated do not need a third dose of the vaccine yet, but they have agreed to change their decision if there is sufficient evidence. In addition, officials warn that calls to go for vaccination again may reduce the level of public confidence in the vaccination campaign.

  1. I don’t understand why people should lose confidence in the vaccine. Didn’t the scientist start working when Covid-19 started. I would think people would understand that “YES” essentially we are guinea pigs! This is a new disease that required a treatment yesterday. Whomever expected the treatment or vaccine to be perfect is considerably unfamiliar with reality. I’m greatful for a vaccine that helps and if boosters are necessary then “so be it”. Most of us are aware that we need a flu shot once a year.. .why should this one be any different!?
