People who have already had COVID-19 may only need one dose of the new vaccine, according to two new studies.
The studies suggest that one dose of the vaccine, instead of the traditional two, is enough to boost antibodies and destroy the coronavirus in the nearly 30 million people in the United States who have already had it, The New York Times reported.
The new research echoes findings of two others published over the past few weeks that say people who have had COVID-19 should be immunized but a single dose may be enough.
“I think it’s a really strong rationale for why people who were previously infected with Covid should be getting the vaccine,” immunologist Jennifer Gommerman said.
After infection, most people produce antibodies that can last for many months, but others who had mild or no symptoms of the disease produce few antibodies.
