Dr. Fauci said you’ll need more than 2 shots to be safe from coronavirus

How many coronavirus vaccine shots will you need to stay safe from COVID-19? Dr. Anthony Fauci said there is an optimal number.
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Tuesday he thinks the “optimal regimen” for coronavirus vaccination will include three shots — not two, according to The Washington Post.
Fauci’s comments come as the Food and Drug Administration authorized the Pfizer vaccine for booster shots. People who received the first doses of the Pfizer vaccine can now get their booster shots.
Bloomberg reports the FDA may lean toward approving a half-dose third shot for Moderna since Moderna’s first two shots contain more vaccine than Pfizer’s initial two doses.
