CDC, FDA Officially Recommend Third Booster Shot After Eight Months
August 18, 2021 2:31PM CDT
U.S. Health officials are officially recommending that Americans get a third vaccine shot.
The booster shot should be received 8 months after the second shot – meaning the first round of boosters will begin next month for the earliest vaccine recipients.
The third booster shot applies to people who got the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
Officials are still gathering data on the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine to determine when or if booster shots will be necessary.
Have you been expecting a third shot to be recommended? Which vaccine did you get?
