COVID-19 promoters will be here later than later, generating questions like, “When should I buy one?” Here are some more questions about these.
The FDA has recently approved COVID-19 enhancers for people who are immunocompromised or waiting for an organ transplant. Now, many of us are wondering when it will be our turn to get the third shot.
It’s normal for there to be a lot of questions around reinforcement, as the orientation on this topic has been confusing, mostly because it seems like the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are happening every day. While there are still many unknowns, here are 5 questions (and answers) you may have about COVID-19 boosters:
Who gets them and when?
Many people with weakened immune systems can get their boosters now. When it comes to the rest of the population, it is expected to occur from this fall. According to a CDC statement: “We are ready to offer booster shots to all Americans starting the week of Sept. 20 and starting eight months after an individual’s second dose.”
According to the latest CDC guidelines, for those with a “moderate to severely compromised” immune system, the third shot should be administered at least 28 days after the second shot.
Are there any potential side effects?
The side effects should be similar to the ones you experienced during the second shot, which isn’t great news, but nothing too terrible either. According to the CDC, “Until now, the reactions reported after the third dose of mRNA were similar to those in the two-dose series: fatigue and pain at the injection site were the most common side effects, and in general , most symptoms were mild to moderate. “.
Can vaccines be mixed?
This is one of the most interesting and common questions about the COVID-19 booster shot. While it is still too early to predict how the CDC will act once the third shot is available, health officials are currently advising to follow the same manufacturers. However, if there is no other option, the CDC recommends getting everything available.
Are boosters a good idea?
There is a lot of controversy surrounding booster shots, mostly because only half of Americans have not yet been vaccinated. Some experts believe that the drivers should be stopped until more people in the world are vaccinated, especially because some countries have an incredibly terrible number of vaccines and there is no availability for them. Although booster shots are needed, it is equally important to work hard to vaccinate people who are not vaccinated, as they are more likely to receive COVID-19, which will spread it and allow more variants to develop.
