This Is How Often We’ll Need To Get a COVID Vaccine
You will need your COVID vaccine every year
According to Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, you might have to get your shot on a regular basis, probably year to year.
During an interview with NBC News, Bourla talked about the trials for the development of a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine to increase its efficiency against the mutated variants of the initial virus, including the South African variant which is around 50 percent more infectious than the earlier variants. He explained that it’s normal for viruses to mutate, which is why people need regular shots.
“Every year, you need to go to get your flu vaccine,” Bourla explained. “It’s going to be the same with COVID. In a year, you will have to go and get your annual shot for COVID to be protected.” And for more vaccine info, here are 7 COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects Dr. Fauci Wants You to Understand.
