FDA authorizes boosters of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine for older adults and others at high risk from COVID-19

The booster rollout shouldn’t distract from effort to get more unvaccinated people to get their initial shots, said Bernadette Boden-Albala, director [and founding dean] of the University of California, Irvine’s public-health program. “If you’re not vaccinated, get vaccinated,” Boden-Albala said. “If you are vaccinated, be vigilant. And if you’re vaccinated and eligible for the booster, get it.”
