Local COVID-19 vaccine : A third dose necessary?

A study on whether a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is required is currently underway.

This was confirmed by Deputy Director General of Health Services, Dr. Hemantha Herath.

He said that sufficient data is yet to be collected to reach a firm decision regarding the matter.

Some parties claim that a third dose of the vaccine should be given while others say it is not necessary. Views of both parties will be considered before a final decision is reached, the DDGHS said.

He added that if a third dose is required, it will be administered from January 2022.
