IPH expert: Immunity is not created by a single dose of vaccine. How many days does it take to be protected from Covid?
A single dose of vaccine is not enough to create immunity to the coronavirus. This is what the specialist of the Institute of Public Health, Ira Peza, says, emphasizing that after 21 days those who have been vaccinated should receive the second dose. The second dose should be from the same manufacturer as the first dose.
In the interview for ABC News she says:
Put after 21 days to take the second dose. If we get vaccinated with Phfizer, the second one will be done with it, not another.
She says it takes seven days from receiving the second dose of the vaccine for the person who made it to develop immunity and be protected.
For this, the experts call to continue with the observance of the measures:.
"The first two weeks the body begins to create antibodies, but the second dose is needed to complete the vaccination process."
