Why not wait until they start giving even more?
... he is ... as per original plan until 2023 for the 2nd jab.

As for the "booster(s)", that could be perpetual. Isn't this an opportunity cost in business terms? Only that this cost is a life. That would be very unfortunate.

Depends on your age and health status.
In vast majority of cases I wouldn't advise waiting

There’s a ‘realistic possibility’ that a new Covid variant could develop that may kill as many as one in three people it infects, according to scientists advising the Government.

SAGE has released a paper outlining how the pandemic may develop next, with one possible ‘doomsday’ scenario concerning the experts.

The potential new variant could cause ‘severe disease in a greater proportion of the population than has occurred to date’ and may have a similar mortality rate to another coronavirus, MERS-CoV, which results in death in 35% of cases.

Scenario One: A variant that causes severe disease in a greater proportion of the population than has occurred to date. For example, with similar morbidity/mortality to other zoonotic coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV (~10% case fatality) or MERS-CoV (~35% case fatality).
Likelihood of increased severity phenotype: Realistic possibility.
Impact: High. Unless there is significant drift in the spike glycoprotein gene sequence, then the current spike glycoprotein-based vaccines are highly likely to continue to provide protection against serious disease. However, an increase in morbidity and mortality would be expected even in the face of vaccination since vaccines do not provide absolute sterilising immunity i.e. they do not fully prevent infection in most individuals.
