Health begins the record dose of those vaccinated with Janssen

The Department of Health has this week begun administering a dose of remembrance to those vaccinated with Janssen more than three months ago. The primary care centers (CAP) will be in charge of summoning this group who will be given an additional dose of Pfizer or Moderna, following the current strategy of citation and vaccination, and also with new tools, in from late November.

The centers that have the computerized medical history will soon have on the appointment website Health, within the section of reason for the visit, a specific COVID vaccination where users can request an appointment to be vaccinated in their CAP or in the spaces annexes of this. In a few days, this new utility will be operational on the website of primary care centers and, from that moment, an SMS will be sent to users who meet the criteria to receive the booster dose. Vaccination of the booster dose will be done at primary care centers and not at population vaccination points.

Because an extra dose

In general, the additional dose of COVID, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines is being administered to the elderly because, although this group has an adequate immune response to vaccination, there is a decrease during old age. progressive immune response affecting the protection provided by the COVID-19 vaccine, especially after six months of receiving the dose of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The administration of a third dose, of either of these two vaccines, strengthens the immune response of the previous vaccination and allows it to be maintained over time.

On the other hand, in people who have received the vaccine from the Janssen laboratory, it has been observed that this decrease in the immune response occurs earlier, from three months after receiving the vaccine. For this reason, it is recommended that a booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna be given at least three months after receiving the Janssen vaccine (which in this case was a single dose).
