Booster doses for J&J COVID-19 vaccine endorsed by FDA advisory panel

WASHINGTON (AP) - FDA advisory panel endorses booster doses of Johnson & Johnson’s single-shot COVID-19 vaccine.

Thursday, a panel of U.S. health advisers endorsed booster shots for Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine. The advisers to the Food and Drug Administration voted Thursday to recommend a lower-dose booster shot for seniors and other high-risk groups.

Already millions who got their initial Pfizer shots at least six months ago are getting a booster of that brand.

Final decisions are expected next week. U.S. officials stress that the priority is to get shots to the 66 million unvaccinated Americans who are eligible.
