Just kidding… some need the 3rd dose

Apparently I leave 15 minutes early and miss something very important. Apparently the external committee came back after a break and had a second vote. They voted “YES” for a 3rd shot for those 65+ years (6 months after first series) and those at high risk for serious illness. They also suggested that ACIP add in those with occupational exposures in their meeting next week.

So FDA will likely approve a 3rd Pfizer dose for those 65+ years, those with certain medical conditions, and maybe those for certain occupations (like healthcare workers). This would then go to CDC ACIP for a vote next week.

I need a glass of wine. Sorry for the confusion!! Katelyn
