October 23, 2021 (Washington D.C.) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control yesterday announced approval of booster shots for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. The Moderna booster approved is half of the original dose. Boosters of Pfizer, the third vaccine authorized in the U.S., were previously approved.
The CDC also provided consumers the option to mix and match, choosing a different booster than their original vaccine(s).
Who's eligible -- and when should you consider getting a different vaccine than your original dose?
