On Monday top scientists at the World Health Organization and two departing scientists from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration wrote in an article in the Lancet medical journal that booster shots are not needed for the general population.
The journal said that six months after getting two shots of the vaccine, the chance of hospitalization had only risen slightly for those over 75 years old.
And that, as for now, immunity levels after six months didn't show much difference.
This goes directly against some of the decisions by countries around the world including the U.S. where booster shots will be rolled out in a few days.
The authors of the journal added that booster shots coming too soon or too frequently could even be dangerous to recipients AND that using the supply to administer first shots to unvaccinated people would save more lives.
