The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has decided and gave a final signoff Friday for everyone that is 18 and older to get the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna booster if six months has passed since their final shot, teeing up many Americans to reach out and get extra protection because there may be a winter rise in cases.

Those who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine have already been authorized to get their booster two months after taking their initial shot. Booster shots have succeeded in demonstrating to everyone the ability to safely increase people’s protection against infection and other severe outcomes. They are an important public health tool that strengthens our defenses against the virus as we begin the holiday season.

And if we are to look at compelling evidence, all adults over 18 should have equitable access to a Covid-19 booster dose, as CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has confirmed. The CDC advisory panel has voted unanimously to recommend the boosters earlier on Friday. The panel urged everyone 50 and older to get a booster, but has also allowed everyone 18 to 49 to get it as well.
