fourth dose of Corona vaccine

Copenhagen: The world is battling the coronavirus for almost 3 years. The covid-19 vaccine is being applied to protect against coronavirus, but this too does not work for long. In such a situation, many countries including India have started giving booster doses. It is being administered 90 days after the second dose. Meanwhile, Denmark has completed preparations for its fourth dose. There, people above 50 years of age will be given the fourth dose of the Kovid vaccine soon.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Fredriksson said on Wednesday that she has put in place this strategy to prevent the spread of the Covid epidemic in the coming months. The Prime Minister said, ‘However, the Covid infection in the country is still at a low level. But in recent days, there has been an increase in the number of cases of subvariant BA.5 of the new variant Omicron of the corona, which spreads more rapidly than other variants. That is why the fourth dose of the vaccine is being started.

According to a recent report by the Danish Ministry of Health, 90% of patients infected with Omicron have already received two doses or booster shots of the corona vaccine. There are currently 41,342 cases of the new variant in the country, out of which 29,781 people have taken both doses of the vaccine. According to the data, a similar trend has been seen in Germany and America as well.
