With current science advising everyone to get a booster shot of whatever vaccine they got the first time, the one-shot Johnson & Johnson had not updated its recommendation …until today.
On Wednesday they advised that a second dose of its vaccine generates a strong immune system response.
‘People who received a second shot of the vaccine six to eight months after their first shot saw antibody levels nine times higher than those who received a single dose.’
Officials say they plan to submit data to the FDA and hope to roll out extra doses in September alongside Pfizer and Moderna.
Go get your booster!
