pep-up

At this time, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amendment of the emergency use authorizations (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to allow specific individuals with compromised immune systems to receive a third additional vaccine dose (booster). Patients should talk to their doctors to determine if they need an additional dose and what the timing of that dose should be.
