Professor Adam Finn of the Joint Committee on Immunization tells Sky News that the COVID virus varies and “it’s going to keep happening”.
He said we need to “anticipate that there will be other variations” and that vaccines will need to be modified appropriately.
Professor Finn Finn said the decision to delay the period between the first and second dose of vaccine is “a strategic judgment”.
He continued, “These are not normal times, and what we need to do is extrapolate from the data we have based on the knowledge we have of many other vaccines and the human immune response and make a strategic judgment.
“Because the truth is if you take a dose of vaccine that you otherwise save and give it to someone as a second booster dose and put it in the arm of someone who is not immune at all, you will start to induce protection in this second And with this epidemic rapidly increasing right now, it is the imperative need. ”
Asked who are following the rules of this lockdown, he said it would appear that some may not be as careful as possible to distance themselves socially.
He said: “My personal impression is that people may not be as careful as they could be about parting at the moment, which is a very imperative need.
“But on the other hand, this latest lockdown is only just beginning, so the impact of the lockdown should be seen in another week. ”
