Boosters of the COVID vaccine have been FDA approved for people 65 and older as well as anyone with underlying health conditions, but that appears to be much less compared to what the Biden administration had been saying would happen.
More needs to be done before the boosters can be given to eligible individuals.
Experts appeared to be concerned over so many questions about the reasoning for boosters that they discussed potentially putting off making a decision until there was more evidence.
This helps to show that President Joe Biden’s original plans were far more complicated than he had made them out to be when discussing booster shots.
The FDA decision to only include certain groups also included individuals working jobs that pose a risk of infection like health care workers, teachers, grocery workers and those in homeless shelters or prisons.
The evidence appears confusing because studies show there is no need for a booster yet, but breakthrough cases appear to be becoming more common.
Dr. Anthony Fauci said that this is not the end. Health officials for the United States think boosters will eventually gain approval.
