The FDA also emphasised that other fully vaccinated people are “adequately protected” and currently do not need an extra dose.

The U.S. health regulator amended the emergency use authorisations for the vaccines to allow an additional dose in certain individuals, specifically for recipients of solid organ transplant or those diagnosed with conditions that are considered to have an equivalent level of immunocompromise.
