Emory University researchers are participating in a study that many public health experts believe will be an eventual step in containing the spread of COVID-19: a booster shot.

Emory, which has partnered with Moderna on other COVID-19 vaccine research, is working again with the biotechnology company and using its vaccine for this research.

The research will focus on how long the COVID-19 vaccine shot will be effective and on monitoring side effects.

Roughly 50% of Georgia adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine as of last week, well below the national average of 64%.

They will receive two doses of the Moderna vaccine and eventually a booster shot.

People who’ve had COVID-19 are ineligible for the study because they have developed antibodies that make the booster research ineffective, Edupuganti explained.

David Wyse, 70, a retired information technology worker who lives in Decatur, volunteered for the study and received his first shot last week.

He received two Moderna vaccine shots, the first in January and the second in February
