A paramedic flushes a syringe before preparing a shot of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. Leon Neal/Getty Images Giving two doses of Pfizer's shot eight weeks apart could best protect against the Delta variant. A study found that the eight-week delay boosted immune responses higher than waiting 21 days. It's a trade-off between needing two doses and optimizing the immune response, the researchers said.

Why England’s sudden lifting of covid restrictions is a massive gamble

England is about to take a huge gamble.  On Monday, July 19, the country is ditching all of its remaining pandemic-related restrictions. People will be able to go to nightclubs, or gather in groups as large as they like. They will not be legally compelled to wear masks at all, and can stop social distancing. The government, with an eye on media coverage, has dubbed it “Freedom Day,” and said the lifting of safety measures will be irreversible.  At the same time, coronavirus cases are rapid...

Pfizer wants to give you a booster shot—but experts say it’s too soon

Is it time to start thinking about booster shots? Pfizer seems to think so. In a private meeting with top US scientists and regulators on July 12, the firm’s representatives argued that the US should move to authorize a third shot. Last week, Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech announced that they had observed waning immunity in people who had been vaccinated and that they planned to seek emergency-use authorization for a booster dose in August. A third shot “may be beneficial to maintain the...
