If you’ve had the coronavirus Vaccine, you might be wondering how long the protection lasts. It won’t last indefinitely. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the President’s main medical advisor and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, appeared on the Today Show to talk about when we might all need Boosters, based on the revelation that those who are immunocompromised will need them first.
Immunocompromised persons, according to Dr. Fauci, require Boosters initially since they “never really achieved a good response to begin with.” So it’s more about getting them up to speed on what they should have gotten the first time around, but we know they didn’t because of their immunocompromised state. That’s not the same as the durability of reaction, which is following a person, whether they’re elderly or not, and making sure that if their level of protection drops below a particular level, they’re ready and have a plan in place to deliver them their boost.
Craig Melvin, the host, mentioned one study “After six months, the Pfizer vaccination is less than 50% effective, according to the study. What are your thoughts about that?” The CDC, according to Fauci, is reviewing all of the data. The CDC is looking at cohorts of patients: elderly, nursing home residents, younger people, and so on. They’re looking at all of that data, and if the data reveals that the degree of protection has dropped below a certain level, Boosters will be implemented.
The enormous amount of data presently acquired, with pregnant ladies who have used it, shows that it is completely safe in pregnant women. But, more crucially, the adverse effects of COVID on pregnant women, not only to the woman but also to the unborn. So, you have to weigh an enormous quantity of experience that gives you a positive attitude that there is a very high degree of safety against what we clearly know.
