The Biden Administration is expected to announce that it will support Americans getting booster shots eight months after they completed their COVID-19 vaccination. The plan is still being developed, but it would involve administering third shots beginning mid- to late-September, pending U.S. FDA authorization. Pfizer and BioNTech said on Monday that the companies have submitted initial data to the FDA to support the use of booster doses for the COVID-19 vaccines. Last week, the FDA authorized and the CDC recommended third doses for people who are immune-compromised, such as people receiving treatment for cancer, or who have received organ transplants or are taking immune-suppressing medications.
