– STATEMENTS/QUESTIONS from “Joey Pals” in the “Medicine Cabinet”.
1. Is Covid going to be a seasonal thing? (Yes, as flu is probably, but we haven’t had enough seasons yet to see).
2. Are there kid size doses for the children? (Yes, FDA panel has said the benefits still outweigh the risks for children getting vaccinated for kids ages 5 to 11.)
3. In the future, fully vaccinated folks might not be considered such w/out a booster? (This is why the CDC considers you fully vaccinated w/ the original 2 shots. This might change, but it is not the case right now.)
4. Might we eventually need a 4th shot? (Probably, especially for folks w/ added exposures, but this population will be small.)
5. Is there such a thing as getting your booster TOO SOON? (Kind of confusing.  Should get it 6 months after the Pfiser first 2 shots. You get a very robust response to the booster.)
