It’s been just revealed by the latest reports that the US experts are expected to recommend Covid 19 vaccine boosters for all Americans.

Yahoo News notes that this will be happening for everyone, regardless of age, eight months after they received their second dose of the shot. This way, people will ensure lasting protection against the coronavirus as the delta variant spreads across the country.

The Delta variant of the virus is the most dangerous and transmissible one so far, as we recently noted. 

The Delta Covid variant is ruling all the other strains across the globe these days. It’s been already revealed that the Delta variant is the most dangerous one so far, according to more expert opinions across the globe. 

Extra shots for the vaccinated 

“Federal health officials have been actively looking at whether extra shots for the vaccinated would be needed as early as this fall, reviewing case numbers in the U.S. as well as the situation in other countries such as Israel, where preliminary studies suggest the vaccine’s protection against serious illness dropped among those vaccinated in January,” Yahoo News posted. 

It’s been also reported that an announcement on the U.S. booster recommendation was expected as soon as this week.

This was according to two people familiar with the matter who spoke to The Associated Press about the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

According to the reports, doses would only begin to be administered widely once the FDA formally approves the vaccines. 

It’s been also reported that such action is expected for the Pfizer shot in the upcoming weeks. 

The same online publication mentioned above also made sure to note the following: “Among the first to receive them could be health care workers, nursing home residents and other older Americans.”

Stay tuned for more news.
