Most Australians WON’T need a second Covid booster shot before winter

Healthy Australians under 65 will not need to get a second Covid booster before winter but may have to get one by Christmas, virus experts predict.

Latest studies out of Israel, where much of the population has two boosters, found a fourth dose restored waning antibodies from the third shot.

However, it only provided a modest increase in immunity against Covid infection with the main benefit being protecting against severe illness.

Eligibility for a fourth vaccine dose is being considered by nations worldwide with the US drug regulator only approving the second booster shot for people aged over 50 last month.

New data from infectious disease experts show a fourth Covid vaccine only offers a small and fleeting increase in protection against Covid for people under 65
