Pfizer has made an emergency request to US officials, seeking authorisation to administer a third booster dose of the company’s Covid-19 vaccine

The company has provided new data from early human studies which shows that a third dose of the vaccine is safe and will raise neutralising antibody levels by 5 to 10 fold.

Pfizer is waiting for further information to come to hand, before asking the FDA for express approval to administering a booster shot six to eight months after the first two doses.

The company’s decision to go public with this information stems from the promising signs in early data and increased public concern about mutations of the virus.
