US Gives Booster Shots to Over-65s and Other High-Risk Groups


The United States will offer booster shots to people over 65, living in long-term care facilities and other high-risk groups, the American Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has decided. The campaign is now finally being rolled out.


People under the age of 65 can get a booster shot if they have underlying medical conditions or are at an increased risk of infection at work. The booster shots have been offered to people with a weakened immune system since August 13.

The extra shots with the corona vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech are only allowed in people who have already been vaccinated with it. A booster shot follows at least six months after the second shot. Approximately 26 million people have been vaccinated with Pfizer/BioNTech in the US, mainly the elderly.

About 64 percent of the U.S. population ages 12 and up are fully vaccinated. From that age, people can receive a corona vaccine.
