Fauci: Americans ‘Likely’ Need Third COVID Vaccine Dose

Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Biden’s chief medical adviser, says Americans will “likely” need a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, speaking Thursday at a White House briefing, said based on his experience, a third dose is necessary for long-term protection against the coronavirus, The Associated Press reported.

Fauci said final determination of third doses will be made by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The U.S. is currently working on boosters for those who received the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to be administered five to eight months after their second dose, subject to approval by the FDA.

Additionally, the U.S. is still studying the need for a booster shot for the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, AP reported.
