The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that fully vaccinated Americans do not currently need a third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
“We are always ready for booster doses if science shows that additional doses of vaccine are needed,” the joint statement from the FDA and the US Centers for Disease Prevention said.
PFIZER ANNOUNCES IT WILL APPLY FOR 3rd DOSAGE
On the other hand, in the statement made to Associated Press from Pfizer, it was announced that the company will apply to the FDA for approval of a third dose of vaccine in order to increase immunity to the epidemic and potentially stop the spread of Covid-19 variants.
In the statement, it was stated that the current vaccine was updated against the Delta variant that emerged in India, and it was stated that the third dose of Covid-19 vaccine, which will be made within 12 months after the second dose, will have a strong effect on preventing new variants of the virus.
The Covid-19 vaccine named BNT162b2, developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, will be released on December 11, 2020.
It was given “emergency use approval” by the FDA to combat the pandemic.
