To 5.5. The spokesperson of the German federal government said on the same day that the German federal government and the states are making necessary preparations for the administration of the third vaccine called the “booster shot”.

He said that the public can rest assured, because the federal government and state governments are making necessary preparations for the follow-up “booster shot” vaccines required after the first stage of herd immunization is achieved.
As Israeli research data shows that the protective efficacy of the new crown vaccine has declined half a year after vaccination, BionTech of Germany and Pfizer of the United States plan to apply to the U.S., Europe and other drug regulatory authorities for approval to give the public a third dose of vaccine in the near future.
