CDC Director Recommends Boosters

The move sidesteps guidance by an FDA panel last week.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Rochelle Walensky released an endorsement of recommendations by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on COVID booster shots. Though the Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee at the Food and Drug Administration voted down the Pfizer boosters just last week, the CDC has moved forward with booster guidance for high-risk Americans.

Director Walensky stated, “I believe we can best serve the nation’s public health needs by providing booster doses for the elderly, those in long-term care facilities, people with underlying medical conditions, and for adults at high risk of disease from occupational and institutional exposures to COVID-19. This aligns with the FDA’s booster authorization and makes these groups eligible for a booster shot.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials at the CDC as they evaluate the risks and benefits of treatments and vaccines.
  • For researchers and advisors at the FDA as they provide guidance for medications and substances.
