In brief: Hard to say

The original research used to get the vaccine approved for use used the 28 day interval as the standard.
That produced a good pattern of effectiveness & possibly 6 years worth of protection. I would be not be too concerned about safety, since that of each dose has been good. I would suspect the duration of protection may be shortened to a few years at most.
