Dr. Anthony Fauci yesterday said that it’s best to continue administering two doses of the vaccines to Americans, and the former acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Richard Besser, agrees.
“I’d go with Dr. Fauci on this one,” he said. “I have concerns that if we go to a one-dose regimen, we could be providing people with suboptimal levels of protection.”
This determination comes as other health experts have speculated that it may actually be more effective to ramp up “the distribution of single vaccines to more people rather than double doses to fewer patients.”
Their reasoning comes from the fact that the shots are making their way through the country at an alarmingly slow rate while, at the same time, new strains of the virus are becoming more and more prevalent.
