FDA Authorizes Boosters of Two Covid-19 Vaccines for Adults 0:33

(CNN) -

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new instructions allowing the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine against covid-19 to be used as an additional dose. or booster doses in people who received a vaccine that has not been licensed for use in the United States.

New CDC Emergency Use Instructions Say Pfizer / BioNTech's Covid-19 Vaccine Can Be Used As An Additional Primary Dose In People 12 Years And Older, Or As A Booster Dose For People 18 Years Old or more, even if the primary vaccine is not licensed or approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

  • CDC approves booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine for all adults

The FDA has already authorized additional doses of the vaccine for immunosuppressed individuals and booster doses for all adults who received the Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

The new instructions allow people who were vaccinated outside the United States or as part of a clinical trial to receive a booster or an additional dose.

"For example, people who were vaccinated outside the United States or who participated in a clinical trial (such as the AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine, the Novavax covid-19 vaccine, or the Sinopharm covid-19 vaccine ) may be eligible to receive an additional primary dose and / or a booster dose, "according to CDC instructions.

CDC uses emergency use instructions to share information about FDA-approved products that are not listed or differ from what is on FDA-approved labeling.

The Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine is the only FDA-approved vaccine with emergency use instructions for primary doses or additional boosters.
