Chief Scientist Who Developed Pfizer Vax Says Boosters Will Be Needed
(Undated) — The chief scientist who helped developed the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine says it’s likely people will need a third booster shot. Dr. Ozlem Tureci the co-founder of BioNTech, says she expects people will need to get vaccinated against COVID-19 annually. She added that scientists expect vaccine-induced immunity to decrease over time. Researchers say they still don’t know how long protection against the virus lasts after six months of being fully vaccinated.
