8 weeks between shots is the’sweet spot’ for giving Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, UK researchers say

Giving two doses of Pfizer's shot eight weeks apart could best protect against the Delta variant. A study found that the eight-week delay boosted immune responses higher than waiting 21 days. It's a trade-off between needing two doses and optimizing the immune response, the researchers said. See more stories on Insider's business page. LoadingSomething is loading. ...

BioNTech offers 10 times more antibodies than Sinovac | Digital Trends Spanish

A study carried out by the University of Hong Kong reveals that those who received the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine have ten times more antibodies than those who were inoculated with Sinovac. The work also shows that the latter group generates levels of proteins to attack the virus that would be similar or lower than those produced naturally in patients who have recovered from COVID-19. According to the researchers, the study results, which were published in Lancet Microbe, suggest the need for "alternative strategies", such as booster vaccines, for those who have been immunized with Sinovac, as a way to increase antibody levels in these patients. "The difference in neutralizing antibody concentrations identified in our study could translate into substantial differences in the ef...

When does “normal life” return according to the founder of BioNTech? | Digital Trends Spanish

Pfizer's announcement that its coronavirus vaccine would have been more than 90 percent effective gave us all some hope regarding an eventual (albeit distant) end to the health crisis. Of course, we all have to be aware that the period that follows the application of the vaccine will not be easy, nor will it be perfect. In fact, it will be as hard and difficult as the one we have experienced during this 2020. So at least Ugur Sahin, founder of BioNTech, a German company associated with Pfizer in the development of the vaccine against COVID-19, has announced. In conversation with Sky News, the scientist pointed out that people could start getting vaccinated in the United Kingdom from next month. Of course, this would depend on whether the regulator in that territory approves the dr...
