U.S. In addition to a few weeks the coronavirus will continue to give two doses of the vaccine and will not comply with the UK’s decision to delay the second shot, said Dr Anthony Fawcett told CNN on Friday.
Asked about the UK’s new dosing system, Fawcett said: “I’m not in favor of that. “We’re doing what we’re doing,” he said.
So far, the U.S. A valid coronavirus vaccine requires two doses except for a few weeks.
The British government announced on Wednesday that “the UK would prefer to give the first dose of the vaccine to the most at-risk group” and allow the second dose to be given 12 weeks later.
The UK has adopted a strategy of giving the first dose to as many people as possible as soon as possible, saying it protects a small amount.
Asked by NBC’s Today show on Thursday whether the U.S. should change its approach and adopt the UK’s plan, Fawcett replied, “It’s under consideration.” He told CNN on Friday that the comment had been “misinterpreted.”
In his clinical trials, Pfizer and Modern – U.S. Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Fau Ki, noted that Manufacturers of two vaccines recognized in – except for a few months, study the effectiveness of several doses. Except
“The fact is that we have to stick to what science says, and the data we provide for both (vaccines) suggests that you give a prime, then an increase of 21 days with Pfizer and 28 days with Moderna. And right now, that’s the way we’re going with it, and that’s the decision, ”he said.
“We make decisions based on data. We have no data to give one dose and wait longer than usual (to give another dose). “
When he indicated on the Today show that following the UK example was “under consideration,” Fawcett said Friday that it meant some people – not US health officials – were talking about it.
“It simply came to our notice then. I think some – not everyone – but people misinterpreted when they said I was considering changing. We are not, ”he said.
