EU drug regulator backs Pfizer vaccine booster for over-18s
France24 says the EU’s drug watchdog on Monday approved booster doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid vaccine for all people aged 18 and over, amid concerns that protection dips after initial jabs.
Extra doses of both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines were also approved for people with severely weakened immune systems by the Amsterdam-based European Medicines Agency (EMA).
“Comirnaty booster doses may be considered for people aged 18 years and older, at least six months after the second dose,” the EMA said in a statement, referring to the brand name for the Pfizer vaccine.
