According to a report published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine, the booster dose of Kovid-19 is completely safe. Researchers at Israel's Tel Aviv University fitted nearly 5,000 Israelis with smartwatches and monitored their bodies for two years. Of these, 2,038 were given a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Apart from this, the team checked the safety of booster dose by studying the medical files of 2 lakh 50 thousand members of Maccabi Health Services. Dan Yamin, a professor at Tel Aviv University, said the smartwatch was used to monitor heartbeat, differences in heart activity, sleep, steps are taken, and other activities.
