There has been some speculation about this but there has been no concrete official statement or evidence that proves that the person is required to take 3 shots of the coronavirus vaccine in order to complete the full regime. This might not come as a surprise for a lot of people who had expected this and are waiting for the official announcement, one of those people is none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci who is the white house chief medical advisor.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has said on Thursday that he would not be surprised if the recommended full regimen for the Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines is actually turned out to be 3 doses instead of the 2. This is not a new thing that can surprise him. He is expecting this to happen too. The people in the United States might have to take the 3 doses instead of the 2 that had been said to date.
What is the reason behind the third shot or the third dose? Fauci had given the answer to this too. He said that giving a person a third dose after they have taken the first two shots several months after that, will increase the immunity system in the person. This will allow the person to stay healthy and the coronavirus could not harm the person too much if in case they catch the infection.
“I have to say from my own experience as an immunologist, that I would not at all be surprised that the adequate full regimen for vaccination will likely be three doses,” Fauci told the news in a briefing.
Obviously, it has not been finalized yet and there are no comments from the vaccine makers too but if it was the case then that would create a lot of additional immunity in the people who are going to complete all three doses. Nothing had been said officially yet and if there is any statement made then we will be the first one to report it. So keep your eyes open to the news. The change is always going to come sooner or later.
