New York. A big decision has been taken regarding the Corona Vaccine (Covid-19 Vaccine) campaign in America. Now the patients coming in the high risk group here will be given the third dose of the vaccine. Those patients are kept in the category of high risk patients who are already suffering from serious diseases and whose immunity is weak. For example, patients who have had a transplant or are suffering from a fatal disease like cancer. This announcement was made by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) late on Thursday night.
Let us tell you that in view of the ever-increasing cases of delta variants across the world, another big wave of corona is being feared. In countries like Israel and Germany, the third dose of the vaccine has already been given to high risk patients. Now the third dose of Pfizer and Moderna vaccine will be administered to the people in America. The gap between two doses of this vaccine is kept for four weeks.
Antibodies decreasing even after two doses
In the US, 3 percent are patients in the high risk group. At present, the Food and Drug Administration has made it clear that the third dose of the vaccine will not be given to the general public. Recently, a study has been done in the US, according to which 650 transplant patients were seen that even after taking two doses of the vaccine, only half the antibodies were left in their body.
