Why three? 

 

Earlier this month, the manufacture has got Pfizer/BioNTech to say about US and European authorities. It can permit providing the third dose of vaccine. 

 

They say this for ensuring the aim of maintaining stronger immunity for individuals. However, it can get down as bestowed with almost two doses. 

 

The developers claim that two doses make the vaccinated for protection. After that, it comes up for severe Covid-19 for at least six months. 

 

It can come as face emerging variants. It can come up with an anticipated decline of efficacy with time. 

 

Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Counselor of the White House, spoke on CNBC on Thursday, saying that the third-dose application of Pfizer/BioNTech was "a suitable preparation for the possibility of a booster."

 

"But if you put it into, 'We will need a booster, everyone will receive a booster,' it isn't right," said Fauci.

 

He also added that too many persons still have two doses, let alone three, not fully vaccinated.

 

What are the wordings of authorities on this? 

 

There are currently no signs of a third dose recommended by medical agencies to all who have received two.

 

It is still too quick to say whether a third dose is required by the European Medicines Agency and European Center for Disease Control.

 

"Data from ongoing vaccination camps and studies are insufficient for understanding how long vaccine protection lasts and also for considering the distribution of variants," they said.

 

Didier Houssin, Director of the Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization, said that he didn't think that sufficient evidence was available to justify recommending at this point the third dose.

 

He also warned that talking about a 3rd dose "could increase concerns about access to the vaccine" at a time when only a small percentage of people have been completely inoculated in most countries.

 

President Viktor Orban said Friday, Hungary that a third injection could be made available to some citizens from the beginning of August.

 

The majority of Hungary's vaccines were vaccinated. In addition, many people were approved for use in the EU using Chinese and Russo shots instead of Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.

 

It gets useful for the venerable people

 

While mass dose third campaigns seem not to be on the horizon, several countries have begun to give certain people third doses.

 

These include people, whose immune systems are weakened, including people with organ transplants or have cancer or renal problems.

 

These include eliminating the body's natural immune reaction to diseases, thus reducing the immune reaction of a vaccine.
