Ms. Gilbert said that the immunity generated from the full vaccination according to the initial two-shot course is being well maintained, even with the Delta variant.
Facing the complicated and unpredictable situation of the Covid-19 epidemic in the world, some countries have deployed the 3rd injection for people, after completing 2 mandatory injections. Regarding this issue, health organizations around the world do not currently have an official recommendation, affirming that the Covid-19 vaccine needs a third injection.
Regarding this issue, Professor Gilbert – an Oxford University professor who is known as the “mother” of the AstraZeneca vaccine – on September 10 replied to the Telegraph that it is possible that a third booster dose of vaccine is not needed. with many people.
Specifically, Ms. Gilbert said, from being vaccinated enough according to the initial schedule, immunity is being maintained well, even with the Delta strain. For the elderly and immunocompromised groups, a booster dose may be required. For most people, the standard two-shot course of vaccine is enough to provide long-term protection.
“We’ll look at each situation. Immunocompromised people and the elderly may need a booster shot. However, I don’t think we need a third shot for everyone. Most people maintain good immunity (after the second dose), “Gilbert told the Telegraph.
This professor also said, right now the priority of the world is to distribute the vaccine to countries where the majority of the population is unvaccinated. “We need to do better on this. The first shot will have the most impact,” Ms. Gilbert said.
In this regard, scientists around the world also agree that, for immunocompromised and elderly patients and those whose immune system does not produce enough antibodies when injecting the standard course, dose booster is necessary.
But now, what scientists argue with young people and groups in good health is how effective the nose enhances. Because at the present time, there is not enough data needed to draw conclusions. In it, some scientists have suggested that, instead of giving everyone a 3rd dose, it is necessary to conduct a test to see if a person needs a 3rd booster dose or not.
