Fully Vaccinated Definition Could Change in Future Says CDC Director

by ECT

On Friday, CDC director Rochelle Walensky said the US may need to change the definition of what it means to be fully vaccinated in the future due to COVID-19 boosters.

Currently, full vaccination status is given to those who have both doses of either the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson.

According to Walensky, those who have received J&J, everyone is eligible if you received your dose more than 2-months ago. For those with Pfizer or Moderna, if your dose was more than 6-months ago, you are eligible if you are over the age of 65. You are also eligible if you live in a long-term care facility. You are also eligible if you are over the age of 18 and have underlined medical conditions or live in work in a high-risk place.

It was stated Friday that more than 120 million Americans will be eligible for the booster in the coming months. 70-million are eligible as of Friday with 10 million already receiving the shot.

CDPH Urges Eligible Californians to get COVID-19 Booster Vaccine

SACRAMENTO – Today, in a statement issued by California Department of Public Health Director and State Public Health Officer Dr. Tomás Aragón, the department urged eligible Californians to get a COVID-19 booster vaccine following approval by the federal government and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workshop.

“Vaccines are how we end this pandemic, and following this week’s announcements by our federal partners, boosters will play a critical role moving forward. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is ready and eager to continue working with providers and community partners across California to administer boosters to more Californians. This week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded the Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup recommended supporting the expanded EUA’s. These decisions, as well as the authorization to allow for mixing and matching of COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers for boosters, will allow more Californians to increase and maintain the strongest protection against infection heading into the winter months. All eligible Californians will benefit from this added protection and should make receiving their booster vaccine a priority. Eligible Californians can find a booster vaccine through MyTurn.ca.gov and schedule their flu vaccine at the same time to stay as healthy as possible.”
