Suara.com – The Johnson & Johnson Vaccine is one of the Covid-19 vaccine a single dose with a known level of effectiveness in preventing severe Covid-19 corona virus infections by up to 85 percent.
However, clinical trial data in January 2021 showed the effectiveness of this single-dose Covid-19 vaccine decreased by 66.3 percent in preventing infection.
According to experts, it is natural for the antibodies induced from the Covid-19 vaccine to decrease over time.
Because, the Covid-19 corona virus continues to mutate and people who have been fully vaccinated are still at risk of infection due to the declining efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine.
However, that does not mean that the Covid-19 vaccine is not effective against the Covid-19 coronavirus.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has warned that the Covid-19 vaccine works very well to prevent severe coronavirus infections, hospitalizations and deaths from the Delta variant.
Even so, health experts also do not deny that the level of protection provided by the Covid-19 vaccine will decrease over time. So, they explained again that everyone will need a booster shot or not.
Based on research reported from Times of India, people who get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine continue to produce some level of antibodies for at least six months post-vaccination. However, the level of these antibodies can indeed decrease over time.
Low antibody levels only increase a person’s chances of contracting the Covid-19 coronavirus. That’s why scientists and medical professionals are working to create booster injections that can provide long-lasting antibodies.
According to Johnson & Johnson, homemade booster injections are safe and can be used. Meanwhile, research also did not find side effects which is more serious alias similar to the previous vaccine injection.
Side effects of the Johnson & Johnson booster vaccine may include fever, fatigue, pain at the injection site, muscle and joint pain. Scientists and researchers have found the benefits of vaccines far outweigh the risks of infection with the Covid-19 coronavirus.
The same is true for Johnson & Johnson vaccines, especially those who are immunocompromised or have pre-existing medical conditions.
