The company explained that the second dose of Johnson’s vaccine will be obtained with a difference of 56 days from the first dose, as the booster dose provides 100% protection against severe corona infection, while providing 94% protection against moderate infection.
The researchers explained that people who received a booster dose six or more months after the first dose had a 12-fold increase in antibodies, compared to a four-fold increase for people who received a second dose at two months.
