As first announced by President Biden, US health officials will roll out vaccine boosters the week of September 20.
Based on powerful evidence from Israel that shows the vaccine wanes over time, Dr. Fauci and other experts have recommended booster shots, starting with the elderly.
Friday, FDA vaccine advisers will meet to discuss the boosters but there is still some confusion as to who needs them and the roll-out.
Other countries such as England have already started giving boosters to adults over 50 and other ‘medically vulnerable people’ and France, Germany, Denmark and Spain are also considering a third shot for older adults or have already begun administering them.
