The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday endorsed Pfizer’s COVID-19 booster shots for millions of older or otherwise vulnerable Americans.
CDC advisers said boosters should be offered to people 65 and older, nursing home residents and those ages 50 to 64 who have risky underlying health problems. The extra dose would be given once they are at least six months past their last Pfizer shot.
