WHAT IS REMEMBER DOSE, WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Vaccines called reminder dose, booster dose or booster dose are administered in order to increase the decreased antibody rate in vaccines after a certain period of time and bring it back to its previous level.
Since 2 doses of vaccine are already given at certain intervals in coronavirus vaccines, if the reminder dose starts to be applied, this will mean the third dose.
As the antibody level will increase again with the booster vaccine, the body will gain resistance against the coronavirus again. For now, six months after the second dose is considered for the reminder dose. The decision on the subject will become clear in the coming days.
Ankara University Infectious Diseases Specialist Prof. Dr. İsmail Balık, “We will have to do it between 6 months and 8 months for inactivated vaccines, 8 months to 2 years for mRNA vaccines, and 8 months to 1-1 and a half years for vector vaccines.” had used the words.
