Biontech / Pfizer: Experts warn against the third vaccination dose

In the corona pandemic, mRNA technology is the most effective weapon in science. Without them, vaccines like those from Biontech / Pfizer or Moderna would hardly have been developed so quickly. The question still remains: How long do mRNA-based vaccines protect against the virus? Initial studies are based on several years, as the «Spiegel» reports.

The biotechnology companies themselves are more critical. Biontech and Pfizer want to keep the population’s immunity high with refresh campaigns. That is why they now want to apply for approval for the administration of a third vaccine dose in the USA and the EU. Biontech refers to its own study: a so-called booster vaccination is intended to increase the number of antibodies by up to ten times.
