Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health announced that everyone should receive a third dosage of Covid-19 vaccine, known as a “Covid-19 booster dose“, following their first and second doses.
Why need a booster dose?
Those who have already received their first and second doses of the covid-19 vaccination will lose their protection over time. A booster shot is recommended to provide or maintain long-term immunity.
