US Pharmacies Are Seeing Challenges On Covid Booster Rollout

According to the latest reports, the US pharmacies are currently seeing some issues regarding the covid 19 vaccines boosters rollout. 

As we already reported, federal regulators have cleared booster shots of the three coronavirus vaccines in use in the US.

Earlier today, we revealed that right after the Centers for Disease and Prevention authorized more doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson’s vaccines Thursday night.

The same reports note the fact that the agency’s decision also enables fully immunized people to pair their boosters with doses from different manufacturers.

The news come after research from the National Institutes of Health showed it was safe and effective to mix and match vaccines. We also reported this issue in a previous article. 

Check out the people who are eligible to get the boosters in this article we posted earlier. 

US pharmacies face challenges involving booster covid shots 

Yahoo News noted recently that pharmacies and doctors Friday began trying to get these shots into arms. But, at the same time, it’s been revealed that they faced a variety of complex issues — they will have to help people understand whether they are eligible and answer questions about which booster to get.

The same article posted by Yahoo News as we mentioned above notes the fact that there is limited evidence that strongly suggests that booster doses of one of the two mRNA vaccines — Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech — more effectively raise antibody levels than a booster dose of the J&J vaccine.

“Now, with 10 months of vaccine experience, some may have an express preference for one booster type over another.”

This is what CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said Friday, referring to the mix-and-match option. 

She continued and said that it was “perfectly fine” for people to choose a booster of the same vaccine that they received initially.

Stay tuned for more news.
