SHARE

There’s been a lot of fuss around the Covid 19 booster shots, especially lately, and this triggered even more controversy around the coronavirus vaccines.

These were already surrounded by various issues, especially regarding their potential side effects for some people.

Biden’s administration push to distribute Covid 19 vaccines

Not too long ago, we reported that experts are criticizing the Biden administration’s push to widely distribute Covid 19 vaccine boosters in the US for the next month. 

They are claiming that the data provided by the federal health officials this week is not compelling enough to recommend third shots to most of the American population.

CNBC just noted that U.S. health leaders say they are preparing to offer booster shots to all eligible Americans beginning the week of Sept. 20.

Pfizer Covid booster release date 

It’s been revealed by the online publication CNBC that the U.S. will likely start to widely distribute Pfizer Covid-19 booster shots during the week of Sept. 20.

On the other hand, it seems that the rollout for Moderna’s vaccine could be delayed, according to Anthony Fauci.

The Biden administration has announced plans to offer third doses to people who received the Pfizer and Moderna shots.

The U.S. recommends an additional shot eight months after the second dose, as revealed by the same online publication that we mentioned above.

Only the Pfizer vaccine booster may get FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approval in time for a rollout the week of Sept. 20, Fauci said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Moderna regulations for a third dose

People who got the Moderna shots could be waiting for longer as the company waits for regulators to sign off on a third dose.

“Looks like Pfizer has their data in, likely would meet the deadline,” the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told CBS.

“We hope that Moderna would also be able to do it, so we could do it simultaneously. But if not, we’ll do it sequentially. So the bottom line is, very likely, at least part of the plan will be implemented, but ultimately the entire plan will be.”

Stay tuned for more news.
