As more people get vaccinated against COVID-19, many are wondering how long immunity lasts and whether they will eventually need booster shots. A growing body of research suggests recurring immunizations could become the norm.
Scientists at the VA’s Office of Research and Development have found vaccines can provide immunity for at least seven to nine months, a similar timeframe as experienced by actual coronavirus patients, according to KWTX reporter Alex Gibbs.
Research on the long-term impacts of COVID-19 vaccines is ongoing. Based on findings so far, though, VA officials are treating the pandemic like an annual problem, similar to the flu, Military Times reported.
Acting VA Under Secretary for Health Richard Stone said he and other researchers and public health leaders believe coronavirus is here to stay, and that the ability to deliver more immunizations is key to reducing mortality and hospitalization, according to Military Times.
