The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have noted that eThe vaccine booster increases protection to a 90% level against serious illness or hospitalization for COVID.
In addition, hethe third dose would partially reduce the symptomatic infection by omicron.
For her part, Dr. María Elena Pajarito Melchor, Coordinator of Social Determinants of the Secretary of Health Jalisco, explained that the reinforcement of the vaccine is extremely important because “antibodies are created after the first scheme, but over the months they decrease and it is necessary to wake up the immune system again with a new vaccine so that immunity can be recovered”.
He said that antibodies do not remain throughout life with the same amount from the beginning.
“Reinforcement is recommended. mainly for older adults, but we will migrate to them being reinforcements from time to time in all age groups”.
