AMMAN — Former minister of health Saad Al-Kharabsheh, in response to Pfizer’s advertising for a fourth dose of vaccine, said that many poor have not vaccinated all their citizens with the two main doses, while many others, including Jordan, provided the third dose to a limited number of the population, according to Khaberni.اضافة اعلان

Kharabsheh said that it is still early for the fourth dose and that the course of the global pandemic should dictate whether to take it or not.

Pfizer Chief Executive Officer Albert Bourla had said that most people will need a fourth dose of the vaccine to protect them from infection. While presently three doses are sufficient, they do not last long and do not protect against hospitalization, he said, adding that Pfizer is working these days, along with other companies, to develop a vaccine that protects against mutants and whose effectiveness lasts at least a year.
