US vaccine intervals increased


But infections go down in US and UK.

United States:

Cases, + 84,406, down 66% last 2 weeks.

Hospitalized, 54,247, down 44% last 2 weeks.

Deaths, + 3,025, down 26% last 2 weeks = 940,405.

Considerations for intervals for mRNA COVID-19 vaccine primary series……

An 8-week interval may be optimal for some people ages 12 years and older, especially for males ages 12 to 39 years.

While absolute risk remains small, the relative risk for myocarditis is higher for males ages 12-39 years, and this risk might be reduced by extending the interval between the first and second dose.

Peak antibody responses and vaccine effectiveness may be increased with an interval longer than 4 weeks.
