Booster Shots Begin

boosterWhile initial recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were somewhat confusing, the Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech SE are now being administered to adults 65 and over and others who are 12 years and older with weakened immune systems.

The Moderna Inc. vaccine booster was also recommended for those who are immunocompromised and 18 years and older. CDC officials said that those who are eligible would not require any documentation or prescriptions and could receive the booster from their physician or at any site where vaccines are administered. The FDA said other fully vaccinated individuals are sufficiently protected and don’t need an additional dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
