Booster shot recommendations from CDC are among the new information in state’s vaccine strategy.
Nevada’s COVID-19 Vaccination Playbook Brief has been updated to incorporate recent recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding booster shots for those who received the Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 Vaccine, including guidance to tailor the plan to Nevada’s unique needs.
More data on the effectiveness and safety of Moderna and Janssen/J&J COVID-19 vaccine booster dose recommendations is expected soon. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will be meeting on Oct. 20 and 21 to discuss this topic following meetings of the Food and Drug Administration’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) on Oct. 14 and 15.
Once those data are available, CDC and the Nevada State Immunization Program will ensure the public is informed with a timely plan regarding boosters for those vaccines.
