US government seeks booster shots at 6 months - report

The United States health regulators will likely approve COVID-19 booster shot for all vaccinated adults six months following the second vaccine dose, according to a report published by The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday.

A person familiar with the plan told the outlet that approval from the Food and Drug Administration could be expected around mid-September. However, the FDA and the White House haven't confirmed the news.

Manufacturers Pfizer and BioNTech confirmed earlier today that they have requested full approval for booster COVID-19 vaccine shots from the FDA, noting the application submission will likely be completed this week.
