WASHINGTON – The Biden Administration is expected to advise that most Americans should get COVID-19 booster shots eight months after being fully vaccinated.
That’s according to two sources familiar with the discussions.
One source said, the plan would involve administering third shots beginning in September, and is pending authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The plan is still in the works, but it could be announced as soon as this week.
Pfizer and BioNTech said Monday they have submitted initial data to the FDA to support the use of a booster dose for its COVID-19 vaccine.
Until now, federal health officials have said boosters are not needed by the general population.
