Moderna’s COVID Booster Recommended by FDA Committee

A Food and Drug Administration advisory committee has recommended emergency-use authorization for a booster dose of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine.

The FDA’s Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee decided unanimously Thursday that the booster shot would be safe and effective in some people six months after completing both rounds of the two-dose Moderna vaccine.

Moderna requested the emergency authorization for a half-dose of its vaccine to be used as a booster for certain people, CNN reported.

The 19-member FDA advisory committee said the Moderna booster shot is safe for people 65 years of age and older, individuals 18-64 with high risk of developing severe COVID-19 and those with high-risk jobs.

If the FDA accepts the committee’s recommendation, vaccine advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will meet on Oct. 21 to decide on the recommendations, CNN reported.
