US COVID-19 vaccine booster program to begin Sep 20 | CIDRAP

Today White House officials released details of their plan to deliver booster COVID-19 shots for all fully vaccinated US adults who completed their two-dose mRNA vaccination regimen at least 8 months prior. The booster program will begin the week of Sep 20.

“It is now our clinical judgment that the time to put out a plan for boosters is now,” said Vivek Murthy, MD, the US Surgeon General. “We have data that protection against moderate disease decreases over time.”

Murthy said the boosters will be contingent on the Food and Drug Administration authorizing the third dose.
