COVID-19 booster more widely available in U.S.

2 December 2021

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a press release on Nov. 18, stating that the COVID-19 booster shot is now available to everyone aged 18 and older. The shot is only available to those in said age group who received their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine at least six months prior to the date of their booster shot appointment.

When getting a booster shot people can mix and match so they can get a Moderna booster shot after they’ve received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

In the press release, CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky stated that, ”Booster shots have demonstrated the ability to safely increase people’s protection against infection and severe outcomes and are an important public health tool to strengthen our defenses against the virus as we enter the winter holidays.”
