So far, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recommended that the entire US population get a COVID-19 vaccine booster.

However, the United States Government, as reported by Anthony Fauci, took action on the matter and is already preparing for this possible scenario by conducting the relevant studies.

So far, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recommended that the entire US population get a COVID-19 vaccine booster.

According to the chief epidemiologist at the White House, it could be safe and even beneficial to get a booster with a vaccine developed by a different laboratory than the previous doses. "We are in the middle of studies right now," were his words.

In addition, Fauci said that "initial data indicate that Moderna's vaccine used as a booster for any of the three vaccines (Moderna with Moderna, Moderna with Pfizer or Moderna with Johnson & Johnson), can be highly effective."

At the moment, the Centers for Disease Control recommends that people eligible for a booster vaccine receive the same vaccine that they had initially received, but the epidemiologist slipped that the recommendation is open to change if new information is found.

"We have not abandoned this concept because we understand that there will be situations, for one reason or another, where a person may not have access to the same vaccine that was originally given," he explained. Despite this, he clarified that, if one of the three market vaccines is found to be much more effective than the others as a booster, the country has sufficient reserves to inoculate the entire population with a new dose of one of vaccines.
