Why no rush for booster dose vaccination?

January 12, 2022


I got myself booster vaccinated today. I went in early and by the time the vaccination staff arrived, there were just four persons waiting for the early bird status. However, I was disappointed to see so few people at the vaccination centre. Maybe by the end of the day, the number turning up for vaccination is substantial.

I will visit the centre again to find out the number of people who got booster vaccinated.

I hope people take this seriously. Yes, some who are fully vaccinated with the three doses may get infected but it is a negligible percentage, but we can still be carriers of the virus and if all others get fully vaccinated (2 and 3 doses as the case may be) then the chance of herd immunity is greater.

Get vaccinated, wear mask, maintain social distance, avoid crowded places and stay safe.

A major issue the announcement for the booster dose does not clarify is our brothers and sisters who have taken 2 doses of vaccination and are now abroad where Covaxin and Covishield are not in use. What will be the booster vaccine for them?

    My brother and Sister in law who had taken Covishield in India(both jabs) were advised to take Pfizer shot as booster in USA. They must have cosulted the concerned authorities there
