A study confirms the importance of the booster dose of “Corona” vaccines in stopping infection
A recent British study stressed the importance of the boosted dose of the “Corona” vaccines to stop infection, after researchers monitored, during a survey they conducted, high rates of infection among the fully vaccinated after 3 months of vaccination.
According to the British newspaper, “The Guardian”, researchers at Imperial College London analyzed more than 100,000 swabs from a random sample of the population and found that rates of infection with the Corona virus were three to four times higher among unvaccinated people than those who received two doses.
But while full vaccination reduced HIV infection rates from 1.76 percent among participants before they were vaccinated to 0.35 percent in the first three months of receiving the second dose, infection rates rose again to 0.55 percent three to six months after receiving the injection. the second.
“The potential increase in infections a few months after receiving the vaccination reinforces the need for the booster dose of vaccines,” said Paul Elliott, professor of epidemiology and public health medicine at Imperial College London, who led the study. Professor Christel Donnelly, a statistical epidemiologist who was also involved in the study, said: “Our results give an incentive for people to get the booster dose if it becomes available to them.”
The researchers indicated that the highest rates of infection that they monitored in their study were among people aged 5 to 17 years, with about 2.5 percent having tested positive for “Corona”, followed by people aged 35 to 54 years, which is the age group that She is likely to have children at school, as researchers say that the infection in the past period was more prevalent among school children.
