We all know about the booster shots and that they are being given to eligible people right now. There had been many doses that had been administered by the government to the people who were eligible for getting the booster shot according to the criteria laid down.
Now, this is a big step that is being achieved but it is also true that the next step must be taken soon. What is the next step? Well, the next step is obviously to give the booster shots to all the adults in the country.
On Tuesday Pfizer had asked the FDA to approve the booster shots for all the people above the age of 18. It is said that booster shots are needed by everyone and not just the elderly or people with some medical condition. The FDA should be looking into this request made by Pfizer and then they should make it available for everyone in the country.
“The amendment request is based on results from a Phase 3 randomized, controlled trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of a 30-µg booster dose of the vaccine, which enrolled more than 10,000 participants during a period when the Delta variant was the prevalent strain,” the companies said in a press release.
The FDA had been working really hard and really fast with the vaccines. They have also recently approved the vaccine for kids in the United States and that was another major step that was taken. Now, this might be the likely thing to do.
They need to make the booster shots available for all the adults and not just for the eligible ones. We are hoping that they will come to make a decision soon enough. That is all that we know for now. We will keep you updated on the news.
