    Mm..ditto. If the DOH is anticipating a post-election surge, then it is logical to start soonest the 2nd booster shot. We already know that the vaccine efficacy wanes over time. Israel approved the fourth dose a long time ago. However, an Israeli study concludes that the second booster shot wanes quickly (4 weeks after) but the second booster shot reduced mortality by 78% among seniors. Right now, we have a huge stockpile of vaccines worth billions that is about to go bad this July. Rather than waste it, let those who want a second booster receive it now.

    Mm…DOH says groups A1 (frontliners) and A2 (seniors) can now get second booster. Interval is 4 months after first booster.

    I was told you can't get the 2nd booster same as previous 3 shots, so if I have all 3 in sinovac, what will be my 4th shot?

    everyone I personally know who are qualified for the 2nd booster have received it.

    I hope the Gov't plans to rollout the 2nd booster to everyone else.
