Researchers Test 3rd COVID-19 Vaccine Dose In Transplant Patients

Researchers are testing how well the COVID-19 vaccine protects people who have received organ transplants.

They want to know if a third shot will help transplant patients or other people with weak immune systems.

30 patients were given a third dose of the vaccine after they requested it.

A third of those people, who had no protection after their first two shots, developed antibodies after getting the third shot.

The research was published Monday in Annals of Internal Medicine.
