In light of China opening up and more variants emerging, many are rushing to get the latest jabs.
One can only wonder how safe is safe enough.
Well, we have the answer.
Some People Have Received SMS to Take the Fifth COVID-19 Vaccine Dose
You thought two booster jabs were sufficient, didn’t you?
Apparently, some have received notifications to get five doses of the vaccine.
According to Zaobao, some people have received text messages informing them they can receive the third booster jab. This comes on top of the two initial doses and two booster jabs.
The Ministry of Health states that for people 12 years old and above, the booster should be administered between five months to a year from their last dose, recommending the bivalent vaccine.
Now, some have already been asked to take their next dose.
Mr Ong Ye Kung Urges Us to Get the Bivalent Shot
As China eases its restrictions, the concentrated pool of 1.3 billion fidgety people sick of staying home will begin to tsunami outwards to other nations.
In other words, things are about to change.
Health Minister Ong Ye Kung urges us to get the bivalent vaccination shot.
But if we already have the COVID vax shot, won’t we be protected?
While the above is true, Mr Ong established the risks of mutations as China opens up. In other words, we might have protection against virus A, but China’s virus B, virus C, and others can still penetrate our defences.
Wait, what’s the difference between the normal jab and the bivalent one?
When a vaccine is “bivalent,” it means that the vaccine stimulates an immune response against two different antigens. The bivalent COVID-19 vaccines include a component of the original virus strain to provide broad protection against COVID-19 and a component to provide better protection against COVID-19 caused by the omicron variant.
Essentially, better lor.
