A new study on vaccines is giving more hope for their effectiveness. According to the recently published study, if Pfizer doses are taken at a more distant time from each other it is likely that more antibodies will be produced.
The study was conducted in the UK and experts say the infection can be fought more easily when the second dose is taken a few weeks later than the first, where the ideal is 8 weeks.
The researchers compared the immune responses of 503 doctors in Britain who were vaccinated at different time intervals during 2020 and early 2021 and found that those who had taken the second dose at a longer time had a better response. immune.
It is now expected that the second dose of the vaccine will be taken at a time interval of more than 3 weeks, unlike now.
According to BBC the study suggests that this new method fights more and the Delta variant. Already in the UK the time interval between two doses of the vaccine is 12 weeks, a measure which has been taken since the end of 2020.
