Prof Sanjay Verma is one of the top young vaccine experts in India

Here are a few questions that he tries to answer today, about the precautionary / booster dose of the COVID vaccine as recommended by the Govt of India for us.

I apologize for the poor audio quality, and also want you to be aware that this is slightly technical stuff, sometimes :)

Why is it being suggested?
Is the immunity really going down?
Will it really prevent infections?
With two doses we are already seeing little hospitalizations, so does it add much?
Who should get it?
Priming and boosting?
Interchangeability of brands?
What happens if someone gets COVID just before the vaccine?
Would it be better to wait at least a year, Or for a vaccine against the new variants, like influenza?
Final words, have you taken it?
