in light of recent news this is not unexpected.

Pfizer CEO says third COVID booster shot ‘likely’ needed within a year of getting vaccinated
[www.nydailynews.com]

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla predicted Thursday that people who have received the company’s COVID vaccine will “likely” need a third booster shot within a year to maintain protection against the virus.

“It is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus,” Bourla told CNBC.

The pharmaceutical chief said it’s also possible that people will need to get inoculated every year against coronavirus.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines already required two separate shots a few weeks apart.

Pfizer had said as early as February that it was testing booster shots in case it was determined they would be needed.

Moderna, the competitor whose vaccine uses a similar so-called messenger RNA platform as Pfizer’s, has also said its testing booster shots.

It'll be interesting to see how this works across the various vaccines.

I assumed there would be one every year until the virus is managed. I get the flu shot every year.

Good, and I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeve so I do not have to go to the hospital for COVID 22.

Realistically, I think it is going to be a difficult sell to get people to go for a third round. The illness, soreness, etc is going to keep many from doing it again. I sure don't look forward to being hit by that bus again.

I don't mind if it is a yearly thing or even 6 month thing. Hopefully the symptoms aren't as bad as the second one every time. I had a sore arm and one day of feeling tired and sore. Not the end of the world. I'd trade that for wearing a mask every day in a heartbeat. I might even take a monthly shot if it meant ditching the mask. I also wonder if it is possible to package it for self administration with a pen.

They should have preliminary data from early studies at the 9 month mark.

Same here.

My condolences to anyone who's had bad side effects or feels they aren't worth tolerating for some COVID protection, but I'm down for a booster every year or even every six months.

I was walking through Kaiser a few years back when I checked out two attractive RNs at a table, and the next thing I know, I had a flu shot.

So I go every year now.

If COVID boosters become an annual thing, it should settle down to an even quicker, smoother process.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

And hope is a lousy defense.

Not related to variants. If you're looking at how long it protects against the original strain, the original round of vaccine is still protecting. This isn't my guess, it's coming from public health experts. Too soon to know about boosters.
