Pfizer to brief US officials on COVID booster shot

Pharmaceutical company Pfizer is set to brief health officials in the United States on the need for a third, booster shot of its coronavirus vaccine, the company confirmed on Sunday.

Earlier this week, Pfizer and BioNTech announced they plan to seek regulatory approval for a booster dose soon as the vaccine-making duo expects people will need a third shot six to twelve months after initial vaccination.

However, US health officials said that they are still analyzing whether a booster dose will be necessary. "Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a booster shot at this time," the Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement last week following news of Pfizer's plans.
