In my experience curing EFB is a one hit job. It may depend on the dose of antibiotic and also what antibiotic you are using.
We only treat the affected hive/s. Some BK's will treat the apiary effected.

Update.  I shook 3 frames of nurse bees in, added a big capped brood frame,  a frame of drawn comb, pollen Pattie, and syrup.  They look much better.

This looks much better to me.  I see the ''wet look" of healthy larvae here. Looks to be evenly laid out also. Best I can tell the surrounding younger larvae is in place also though it is hard to see as the outer larvae is out of the center of the picture. I am thinking this is much better than what you posted before. I am interested in the feedback of our seasoned and experienced bee folks.

Good move. Definitely helped. Picture looks like the beginnings of recovery.  Basically, it looks like the 2nd picture of the first post.  You will still see some scattering of capped vs open at various ages for a couple brood cycles (3 to 5 weeks).  If it is not right and tight by then, an underlying problem will still be lingering.
