There is no evidence that the fourth dose is effective in preventing coronavirus, experts say
European experts say there is no hard evidence that a fourth dose of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine has a positive effect on coronavirus prevention, but experts suggest that 80 years and more people over the age should get a second booster.
According to Reuters, experts from the European Medicine Agency (EMA) and the European Center for Disease (ECDC) have jointly stated that there is no evidence in the European Union to prove that. It can be said that the vaccine can significantly reduce the incidence of the disease in people between the ages of 60 and 79.
According to experts, if there is a change in the epidemic, the fourth dose may be made mandatory in people between the ages of 60 and 79.
Experts from both agencies agreed that Corona’s fourth dose should be given only to those 80 years of age and older.
The agency’s advice follows a decision by European health ministers to rule out a vaccine for immunosuppression in people over the age of 60, which has been shown to be effective in omicron. The place was blocked from using the fourth dose.
An earlier study in Israel found that elderly people who received a second booster of Pfizer and AstraZeneca had a 78% lower mortality rate, while those receiving the same type of vaccine had a lower mortality rate. More viewed
