The Covid-19 booster shot might be required to further strengthen the Immune system…

The COVID-19 pandemic took the lives of many and snatched the livelihoods at the same time can only be curtailed with effective and universal vaccination. And, with the major vaccines in the market, the world is opening up but a major concern among medical experts have emerged about the possibility of administering a COVID-19 booster shot within a year. According to medical experts, it might be required for people who have already been vaccinated as soon as eight to twelve months after the second shot.

According to recent medical information, vaccine durability efficacy lasts at least six months, but a booster might be required within a year or so. Dr Anthony Fauci remarked that variant-specific boosters may not be needed but instead boosting against the wild type is required.

As not much information is available as of yet and one or two months are needed to have sufficient data about the booster vaccines. Pfizer is currently working on the trials on a booster vaccine. Moderna has been working on a booster shot, a half dose of its vaccine to fight variants like B.1.351.

As vaccinations continue to pace up, medical experts believe coronavirus might end up being like influenza, but the continuing circulating mutants have to be carefully coped up.
