In the United States, people with weakened immune systems received a third injection in August. Because their immune system isn’t working properly, they haven’t built up enough resistance against the coronavirus with the first two injections. The CDC does not view this shot as a so-called booster, but as part of the first vaccinations because the vaccine only provides adequate protection after three shots.
The injection can be given with vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson, according to the CDC. It does not matter which medicine is given the first three times. If the first vaccination is done with J&J, it will be a third injection. This product actually provides more protection after one vaccination than other products, and in normal cases a single dose is required.
The fourth shot is unusual at the moment. A number of countries, including Belgium, have approved a third vaccination against the Corona virus. This booster shot with us is currently reserved for residential care residents, people over 65 and people with low immunity, but there are also talks about a third shot for healthcare staff. It is not yet clear if there is also a booster dose for the entire population.
