Elderly people who received a second Pfizer shot twelve weeks later produced more antibodies than those who had three weeks between two shots. This is clear from one Study By researchers at the University of Birmingham.

175 people participated. The research has not yet been equally reviewed and has not yet been published in a scientific journal.

Who received the so-called who are over 80 years of age Booster Twelve weeks later, the level of antibodies was 3.5 times higher than that of peers who received a second shot three weeks later.

‘I did a good job’

In the United Kingdom there were initially three weeks between the first and second vaccinations. That period was extended to allow more people to receive the first vaccine quickly. This also happened in the Netherlands; The period between the first and second injections here is now six weeks.

“Obviously it worked well,” replied Anke Hagrid, a vaccination professor at Cronington University. “Of course you want it to apply to younger people as well. More research is needed to do this, and find out if the results apply to other MRNA vaccines.”
