Coronavirus – second year

It has been more than a year since the Chinese authorities informed the World Health Organization of the emergence of a new rapidly spreading virus. Since then, there hasn’t been anyone in the world who hasn’t heard of the term Covid-19, and more and more people are mourning a relative or friend who ended up with the new disease while existence collapsed in weeks and our entire lives were rewritten from the pandemic. So far, vaccines have been completed, and this in turn raises not only hope, but also many questions, while not only stopping the virus, but also threatening another mutation. You can find the details of this battle in our series of articles.

British Health Minister Matt Hancock said on Wednesday that the British government has requested 60 million doses of the Coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech for the sole purpose of giving these doses as a third vaccine to enhance the effects of the first two doses.

At a Downing Street press conference, Hancock said that the government has been working with health authorities for more than a year to develop a booster vaccination program and has also helped conduct clinical trial programs to determine the expected effects of a vaccination campaign for this purpose. .

The minister said 60 million doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine will be used “along with other vaccines” later this year as part of the enhanced national vaccination program.

Albert Burla said in an online conversation that vaccines will likely need a third dose, which people may need to take within 12 months of the second vaccine.
