Physician answers questions about new CDC booster recommendations

On Oct. 21, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended booster doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccines in certain populations, expanding booster eligibility to millions of Americans. Along with previously endorsed Pfizer boosters, there are now three types of COVID-19 boosters available in the U.S.

Booster shots, which are different from third doses, can be administered anywhere COVID-19 vaccinations are available. They can also be given at the same time as other vaccines, such as influenza.
