Should We Have 3 Shots of Covid 19 Vaccine?

You may read from many mainstream medias such as CBS, Health and CNBC in these days that we might get 3 shots of Covid 19 vaccines.

Why?

Several reasons are:

- immunity will wane over time (several months to a year)
- third shots could increase capability of immunity to fight variants from the united kingdom, South Africa and Brazil.

In fact, there are two kind of vaccines, Biontech-Pfizer and Moderna have been administered in the USA.

I believe many European countries such as United Kingdom, France, Germany and Denmark vaccinated their citizens with Biontech-Pfizer.

Some other countries include “Poland, Romania, Belgium, Greece, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Ireland, Lithuania, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia, Cyprus, Luxembourg and Malta” are using Moderna vaccines (reported by Politico, April 22, 2021).

What are different between two vaccines in term of third shots?

Here are the answers:

1) Biontech- Prizer vaccine (quoted from Pfizer's chief executive)

- immunity will wane about a year
- third shot is needed after 1 year of second shot
- could be re-vaccination annually, like a flu shot.

2) Moderna vaccines (quoted from company's chief executive)

- protection against coronavirus about 6 months
- third shot is available in the Fall
- could be annual shots

However, Dr Anthony Fauci, NIAID director said that possibility to take third shot and annual vaccines will be known after Fall.

So, let’s wait.

  6. In Italia è un caos. Stanno utilizzando quasi tutti i vari vaccini disponibili e in certi casi fanno la prima iniezione con il vaccino di una ditta e la seconda con quello di un’altra industria.😭
    Felice giornata, un abbraccio

  8. I'm still asking myself should I get an annual flu shot? What for? It doesn't prevent me from getting the flu; they just say it will cause the disease to be a mild one.Well with or without the vaccine it's usually nasty.
    The best thing is to work on our immunity from within, and not need an external intervention of vaccines.

  23. I didn't hear about the third dose. In the Czech Republic, Comirnaty vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech is also being vaccinated somewhere.

  24. I don't know about other countries but I can tell you that in Italy and Romania the brand most used for this vaccine is Astrazeneca . I had Pfizer because it was the first vaccine available and because I worked in a hospital I was in the first group of people to be vaccinated but now in Italy they are doing mostly Astrazeneca. I also heared that the effect it will last for an year or so.

  25. Thanks for the info! I've gotten my two Pfizer shots, but if I need a third or more down the road, then I'm all for it. Better safe than sorry. :)

  26. I'd take 10 if that prevents the year we just had. I recently got Cansino and am super happy being able to count down the days to immunity. I hope we learn to stay safe, because even with vaccines, there are the other variants that you mentioned.
