New Research Supports Extending Gap Between 1st And 2nd Pfizer Vaccine

New research suggests waiting 12 weeks to get the second Pfizer Covid vaccine potentially enhances antibody immunity.

Researchers found the antibody response in people over 80 was three-and-a-half times greater in those who got their second dose after 12 weeks, compared with a three-week interval.
This study is the first direct comparison of the immune response in any age group for the different intervals.
