UK should halve Pfizer jab doses gap - experts

Saturday, 23. January 2021 17:03

The British Medical Association (BMA) urged on Saturday the United Kingdom's authorities to halve the period between the two doses for Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE's vaccine against COVID-19 from twelve to six weeks maximum.

BMA Council Chair, Dr. Chaand Nagpaul, stressed Britain must reconsider its decision based on "guidance from the World Health Organisation" and "the fact that no other nation in the world other than the UK has adopted the 12-week delay."

The association's recommendation comes after the authorities decided to make the gap between two doses of vaccine twelve weeks due to delays in distribution.
