Covit-19: The challenge of the vaccine
At the end of October, the Ffizer / BioNTech alliance announced that its vaccine is highly administered in France and is mainly used for third doses, with an efficacy of 95.6% against symptomatic forms of the disease due to the booster dose. These results are based on a study conducted by two laboratories. “The first randomized test for the booster of the Govit-19 vaccine”, They promised.
In December 2020, when Haute Autorité de santé released its report on the vaccine strategy with the product Pfizer / BioNTech, the results of clinical studies indicated that the vaccine was 95% effective. “Reducing the Number of Symptomatic Cases”.
“Neutralization of antibodies with booster is high after second dose”
Since then, real-life studies have been conducted. Published last April in the medical journal The Lancet, An Israeli study found that two weeks after the second dose, the Pfizer / Bioentech vaccine provided 95.3% protection against infections. Or much lower after the third dose, according to recent laboratory results.
“We have already noticed this between the first and second dose: the immunity obtained after the second dose was higher than the first dose.”, Recalled LCI Professor Frederick Lapostol, an emergency physician at Avicenna Hospital in Babikni (see video above this article). “First results show that immunity acquired after the third dose is higher than after the second dose.”
“The level of neutralization of antibodies after booster is very high, which is high after the second dose”, Confirmed to LCI Professor Frederick Adnett, emergency chief of Avicenna Hospital. High efficacy explained by the “boost” effect of the third dose. “This is a great classic vaccine”, He continues. “When the booster dose boosts the immune system again, when the antigen already injected into the body is in memory, it does not need to regenerate the immune system. So immediately, on a massive scale, it protects. This is true for a few diseases.”
However, thanks to research conducted in real life, this belief is yet to be confirmed. “Most Important to Evaluate Performance”, According to Professor Adnet. In France, it takes several weeks to reap the benefits … and learn more about this new protection period.
