Commemorative vaccinations for individuals over 70 years recommends its Standing Vaccination Committee Germany (Stiko). The reason given by the Commission was the fact that the immune response after vaccination was lower in an older age.
Booster vaccination with mRNA vaccine should be given earlier six months after the second vaccination was completed, Stiko said.
THE third dose of the vaccine It will also be offered to seniors staying in nursing homes as well as nursing staff.
The same applies to people who have been vaccinated with the preparation of the company Johnson & Johnson (monosodium vaccine), as broadcast by APE BPE, which cites German media. The reason in this case is that the more infections observed in vaccinated individuals with this formulation.
Also, according to new data released by Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the number of citizens who have been fully vaccinated in Germany is higher than believed. Fully vaccinated is 80% of the adult population.
The Federal Minister of Health Jens Span described the RKI announcement as “good news”. He estimates that “no additional restrictive measures will be needed to deal with the coronavirus in autumn and winter. “The use of the mask outdoors can be abolished, but protective rules are still important indoors,” Span said.
