He explained the decision of the Medical Council – the expert body that recommends solutions to the government in matters related to the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic – in an interview with Polish Press Agency Dr. Konstanty Szodrazinsky, one of its members.
“A lot of research confirms the fact that there is a significant decrease in the level of immunity after a period of about 8-9 months after taking the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. That is why we decided to allow people who are especially vulnerable to infection, that is, doctors, to take the third dose. In addition, We want to give this right to people who are over 60 or younger, but who have comorbidities, who have a weakened immune system response due to their age, and who are especially vulnerable in the case of the severe course of COVID-19 – said the expert.
Does the third dose work? We have data from Israel
In fact, a lot of new data has emerged in recent weeks, the analysis of which prompted the board to make just such a recommendation. The researchers studied the level of antibodies in vaccinated people, as well as the effectiveness of vaccines in everyday life – whether the frequency of severe cases increased over time after vaccination.
