CDC Expands COVID Booster Eligibility
The CDC has expanded eligibility for an additional COVID vaccine booster dose for certain individuals who may be at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19.
People over the age of 50 can now get an additional booster 4 months after their prior dose to increase their protection. This is especially important for those 65 and older and those 50 and older with underlying medical conditions, such as cancer, kidney, liver, and lung diseases, dementia, diabetes, heart or brain health conditions, overweight and obesity, physical inactivity, etc.
