Biden Administration Recommends Booster Shots For Covid-19

Most Americans will be advised to get a booster shot to protect themselves against the evolving COVID-19 virus, and those shots could be available as early as mid-September.

The Biden administration is expected to announce this week that Americans who got the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines will need the third shot to protect themselves against the Delta variant that is spreading across the country, according to the New York Times. The booster shot should come eight months after the second shot; officials also said that people who got the one-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine will also need a booster shot.

The New York Times reports that, like the first rollout of the vaccine, the first booster shots will go to frontline workers and the most vulnerable, including nursing home residents, healthcare workers and emergency workers. After those people will come older folks and then the general public. People will likely get the same vaccine they received before.
