New York Daily News: MANHATTAN, By Theresa Braine – The Biden administration will soon recommend coronavirus vaccine booster shots for all Americans eight months after they got the initial jabs.
Boosters could begin as early as mid-September for people who got vaccinated last winter — which would most likely start with nursing home residents, health care workers and older people who got shots when the vaccines first rolled out in late 2020, The Associated Press reported late Monday, citing administration officials familiar with the discussions.

Two things are fueling the decision, federal officials said: the delta variant and its resulting surges merit extra protection, and data from Israel indicating immunity dropped sharply for older people who got shots last year.

An announcement on the US booster recommendation was expected as soon as this week, the AP reported. .

The US Food and Drug Administration has already authorized third shots for the immunocompromised, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease specialist, has said extra jabs for the elderly were likely not far behind.
