Use of Additional COVID Vaccine Dose for Immunocompromised Individuals
On August 13, 2021, the U.S. CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) reviewed the data for use of an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine for immunocompromised people. ACIP made an interim recommendation for use of an additional dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (for persons aged 12 years) or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine (for persons aged 18 years) after an initial 2-dose primary mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series for moderately to severely immunocompromised people.
