FDA approves Pfizer and Moderna boosters for all US adults
The FDA and CDC have cleared the Pfizer and Moderna booster jabs for adults, after reviewing new data supporting the extra doses. This decision follows an initial rejection of the request for booster vaccines in September, citing a lack of data supporting the need for a third dose. The move allows the remaining 30-40% of adults previously ineligible to receive boosters to do so.
This Emergency Use Authorisation comes at a critical time as we enter the winter months and face increasing COVID-19 case counts and hospitalisations across the country,” said Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna.
Any US adult may now receive a Moderna or Pfizer booster jab, regardless of which FDA-authorised vaccination they received, dependent on a six-month interval between their second and third dose.
