CDC Latest News: Immunocompromised People Could Receive 4th Covid Vaccine

It’s been reported that people who are immunocompromised could get the fourth covid jab. According to the online publication The Daily Wire, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said earlier this week that immunocompromised people could be eligible to receive a fourth dose of a covid vaccine.

The new guidance is reportedly applying to moderately or severely immunocompromised people – they also have to be people who have already received their original two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, as well as the third shot of one of those mRNA vaccines.


The immunocompromised patients may get a fourth booster dose six months after their original covid vaccination.

“In such situations, people who are moderately and severely immunocompromised may receive a total of four COVID-19 vaccine doses,” the CDC said.

The same online publication mentioned above noted that people who are seriously enough immunocompromised to potentially need a fourth dose include the following:

“people currently in cancer treatment for tumors or blood cancers, some organ transplant and stem cell recipients, those with an untreated HIV infection, those taking high-dose corticosteroids, and those taking immunosuppressive drugs or who have a moderate or severe immunodeficiency condition.”

The CDC also said the following:

“Timing of COVID-19 vaccination should take into consideration current or planned immunosuppressive therapies and optimization of both the patient’s medical condition and response to vaccine.”

Covid vaccine-related motion from the European Parliament 

More data is slowly getting out about the numbers of victims following the covid 19 vaccines, according to the official notes coming from the European Parliament. 

On the official website of the EP, we can see the official data regarding a motion for a European Parliament resolution on creating a European compensation fund for victims of the covid 19 vaccines. 

Stay tuned for more news and make sure to stay safe.
