The Biden Administration is recommending Covid-19 mRNA booster shots for all Americans eight months after they are fully vaccinated.
The recommendation will apply to those who received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA injections, not the one-shot J&J "dead virus" vaccine.
Pfizer and Moderna claim the antibodies "wear off" 3-6 months after receiving their mRNA vaccines. Some Americans will require three or more mRNA injections per year.
The healthy human immune system stimulates antibodies that last a lifetime.
Health officials plan to announce the booster recommendations later this week and begin administering the booster shots in mid-September after full FDA approval.
Among the first recipients of the booster shots will be nurses, doctors and other front-line workers, nursing home residents and the elderly.
Last week, the FDA approved mRNA booster shots for immunosuppressed individuals, including organ transplant recipients and HIV/AIDS patients.
People who are at high-risk for contracting the SARS-Cov-2 virus include those with preexisting conditions, such as cardiac and respiratory problems, cancer, HIV/AIDS, smokers and people with weak immune systems.
The SARS-Cov-2 (Covid-19) virus causes flu-like symptoms, such as cough, fever, shortness of breath, diarrhea, headache and sore throat.
Some Covid-19 patients have reported loss of taste and smell after contracting the coronavirus. Doctors say the virus binds to neurotransmitter sensory cells that send signals to the brain.
