If the effect is weakened, our reminder doses should be changed so that these mutants are also effective. In other words, 6 months after the 2nd dose, we need to make a single dose of the Sinovac vaccine from the vaccines we use, but it may be sufficient to do the Biontech vaccine after 1 year or 2 years, “he said.
