Final week, the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized second booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. This authorization applies to people age 50 and older, in addition to sure immunocompromised folks ages 12 and older.

Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention (CDC), said that second boosters are “particularly essential for these 65 and older and people 50 and older with underlying medical circumstances that enhance their danger for extreme illness from COVID-19.”
