(Washington, D.C.) - Nation-wide COVID-19 vaccination efforts will get another shot in the arm this fall.
Yesterday US health officials announced widespread vaccine booster shots beginning the week of September 20.
The idea is to offer boosters eight months after people have received their initial round of vaccinations. Right now, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be the focus. However, plans for a Johnson & Johnson booster are in the works.
Like the initial rollout, high-risk individuals and emergency and healthcare workers will likely be first in line for boosters.
