QC COVID-19 Coalition discusses boosters

The Quad Cities COVID-19 Coalition, made up of local health leaders, are expected to discuss booster shots for the vaccine. On Wednesday, August 18, U.S. health officials announced plans to dispense a third shot to all Americans to boost their protection against the delta variant and signs that the vaccines' effectiveness is falling. The vaccine, which was rolled out under an Emergency Use Authorization, was initially set up as a two-part dose. This was for the Moderna and Pfizer shots. The CDC's booster shot plan calls for an extra dose eight months after people get their second shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. The doses could begin the week of Sept. 20. People who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will also probably need extra shots, health officials said. But they said they are waiting for more data.
