Here We Go: FDA is Pushing for Annual Covid Shots for Americans
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now pushing for annual COVID-19 shots for Americans.
On Monday, the FDA proposed “simplification of immunization schedule” where most adults and children need to be vaccinated once per year to stay ‘protected’ against the ‘mutating’ Covid-19.
“FDA expects that simplification of COVID-19 vaccine composition and annual immunization schedules may contribute to more facile vaccine deployment, fewer vaccine administration errors, and less complex communication, all potentially leading to improved vaccine coverage rates and, ultimately, to enhanced public health,” according to documents posted online on Monday.
The agency added people may only require a single dosage of the latest Covid-19 shot in the future, regardless of how many times someone had been vaccinated in the past, to restore immunity.
