Delay in the use of the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine may have an impact on the increase in observed cases.
“Undoubtedly, there must be many of these patients whose immunity begins to decline after vaccination,” he says.
Although the southern states appear to be less affected, by the fifth wave, Dr. Julian J. Kawanak urges snowflakes to be vigilant.
“I urge snowflakes to be very careful because these are states where public health concerns are low and, unfortunately, when the spread of the virus increases, the authorities will not put in place public health measures such as port masks or community evictions,” he warns.
