CDC Expands Eligibility For Covid-19 Booster Shots: October 21st 



The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have expanded eligibility for booster shots. The Country Journal has reached out to CRNA and Cross Road to find out when boosters will be available locally, and how the local rollout will work. 

On Thursday, October 21st, CDC gave final approval and the go-ahead for people 65 and over and certain others. The approval means that these people will be able to receive a booster after 6 months.

See CDC text below:

Today, CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, M.D., M.P.H., endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation for a booster shot of COVID-19 vaccines in certain populations. The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) authorizationexternal icon and CDC’s recommendation for use are important steps forward as we work to stay ahead of the virus and keep Americans safe.

For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:

For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
