Pfizer booster tied to fewer COVID cases in health workers | CIDRAP

Israeli healthcare workers who received a third dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA COVID-19 vaccine had significantly lower rates of infection in the next 39 days, according to a single-center study yesterday in JAMA.

On Jul 30, 2021, the Israel ministry of health began offering booster COVID-19 vaccines to people 60 and older, later expanding availability to younger residents. In the United States, boosters are now available to people ages 12 and older and for those 5 to 11 with compromised immune systems.
