FDA to review Pfizer booster shots. Meeting scheduled for September 17th.
President Joe Biden announced recently that his administration plans to make Covid-19 vaccine booster shots available from September 20th.
Recommendations from the CDC and approval from the FDA are pending.
The FDA is scheduled to meet with its vaccine advisory committee on September 17th to review whether recent data supports booster doses for the Pfizer vaccine.
As of now, the Joint CDC and FDA statement on vaccine boosters states, “Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a booster shot at this time. FDA, CDC, and NIH are engaged in a science-based, rigorous process to consider whether or when a booster might be necessary.”
