Vaccines approved for all over 18

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday that all adults 18 and older can get a COVID-19 booster shot from Pfizer or Moderna.

The FDA amended its emergency use authorizations to allow all adults to get a single booster dose from Pfizer or Moderna at least six months after being fully vaccinated.

Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shots were authorized previously but only for certain eligible groups: people over age 65, adults with health conditions that put them at risk for severe COVID-19 or those in jobs that have high exposure to coronavirus cases.

Health officials say it’s fine to mix and match booster shots, meaning people can get a Pfizer or Moderna booster shot, even if they originally got a Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
