Doctors Alerts on taking Pfizer booster shots after Sinopharm Vaccine

Medical experts warn that fully vaccinated community members should not insist on receiving more than one dose of the Covid booster vaccine since this could result in concerns. Residents of the United Arab Emirates who have received both doses of the Sinopharm vaccination are eligible for a Pfizer-BioNTech booster shot six months following the second dose. According to local health officials, some people are insisting on a second booster shot, either to increase their immunity or to travel to Europe, where Pfizer and AstraZeneca are among the vaccines that have been approved. In certain situations, the Al Hosn app fails to display either dose, prompting customers to take a second dose for travel considerations.

Moderna and Pfizer Warning

The US Food and Drug Administration updated a warning to the Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines’ patient and provider fact sheets on Friday, indicating a rare risk of heart inflammation.

The inflammation of the heart muscle is known as myocarditis, while the inflammation of the tissue around the heart is known as pericarditis. The benefits of getting the vaccination, according to health professionals, still exceed any risks.

“Given the number of vaccine doses that have been administered, the risk of myocarditis and pericarditis appears to be very low,” Janet Woodcock, acting FDA commissioner, said in a statement. 

According to the CDC, almost 300 million injections had been given out as of June 11th. For both vaccines combined, there were only 12.6 incidences of heart irritation per million doses.
