“According to international studies from the UK, 2 doses of the MERS-CoV vaccine protect you 19% of the Omicron variant and 3 doses protect between 55% and 80% […] Additionally, research by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that a second dose protects between 30 and 35% and 3 doses protects up to 75%.”

On the other hand, Barina reported that a recent investigation by the CDC reveals that the protection that a third dose gives you begins to decline from the fourth month, so that the protection from the fifth day is about 33%.

We doctors and health workers were vaccinated with a third dose between October and November 2021, and the vaccine’s protection has already begun to wane on our immune system. It is for this reason that the Medical Syndicate at the regional and national levels recommends placing the fourth dose at the latest in June of this year,” the specialist added.
