Third COVID-19 Vaccine Shots Are Officially Being Recommended for a Select Group of People

The CDC is officially recommending that a certain group of people get a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Only around 7 million Americans are eligible for the third shot and it’s being reported that these shots are different than the booster shots that people are expected to need in the future.

People who are immunocompromised and did not get an “optimal immune response to their initial vaccine doses of Pfizer or Moderna” will need the third shot, according to ABC News.

“Today, I signed CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation that endorsed the use of an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine for people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems after an initial two-dose vaccine series,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a statement. She added that this is “an important step in ensuring everyone, including those most vulnerable to COVID-19, can get as much protection as possible from COVID-19 vaccination.”

The people who will need a third dose include “cancer patients, transplant recipients, people with HIV and people on immunosuppressant drugs, plus a range of other conditions that similarly left vaccinated people with less immunity than expected.”

The third shot should come at least 28 days after finishing the initial two-dose series and it’s recommended that recipients get the same brand of vaccine.

Here are some celebrities who have publicly said they will not get the COVID-19 vaccine.
