Aberle, president of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, said that people who have been vaccinated with two doses of Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine are “probably” required to receive a third dose within one year of completing the vaccination.
Agence France-Presse reported that Albert Bourla also stated in an interview broadcast on the US Consumer News and Business Channel (CNBC) on Thursday (15th) that the coronavirus vaccine is likely to become a vaccine that people have to vaccinate every year.
Aberle said that everything remains to be seen, including the order of vaccination and how often.
He said: “One possibility is that people may need to get a third dose of vaccine between six months and 12 months, and they need to be vaccinated every year. However, he said that all this needs to be further confirmed, and pointed out that The variant coronavirus will play a “key role.”
Aberdeen also emphasized that to achieve herd immunity, it is “very important” to ensure that the number of people vaccinated reaches a certain number.
Researchers are still unable to determine how long the coronavirus vaccine can provide people with protection.
