COVID-19 Vaccine: What to Expect with 9Health:365 Expert Dr. Payal Kohli

COVID-19 Boosters: What to Expect

According to the CDC, “Studies show after getting vaccinated against COVID-19, protection against the virus and the ability to prevent infection with variants may decrease over time and due to changes in variants. The recent emergence of the Omicron variant further emphasizes the importance of vaccination, boosters, and prevention efforts needed to protect against COVID-19.”

 

Do booster shots use the same ingredients as existing vaccines?

From the CDC: “Yes. COVID-19 booster shots are the same ingredients (formulation) as the current COVID-19 vaccines. However, in the case of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine booster shot, the dose is half of the amount of the vaccine people get for their primary series.”

If we need a booster shot, are the vaccines working?

From the CDC: “Yes. COVID-19 vaccines are working well to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death. However, public health experts are starting to see reduced protection over time against mild and moderate disease, especially among certain populations.”

Am I still considered “fully vaccinated” if I don’t get a booster shot?

From the CDC: “Yes. Everyone is still considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-shot series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the J&J/Janssen vaccine.”
