After last August the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will authorize a third dose of the covid-19 vaccine to certain people 18 years of age and older who are immunosuppressed, in October they gave the green light to a booster doses for a wider population range.
However, those who are moderately or severely immunosuppressed may need a fourth dose of mRNA vaccine against disease.
CDC Says They Could Get This New Dose at least six months after have received the third.
They refer to those who are in treatment for leukemia, cancer tumors, certain stem cell and organ transplant recipients, people with advanced or untreated HIV, or those who use high doses of medications that suppress the immune system, such as corticosteroids.
Those who are in these cases and have received the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine should receive a booster dose at least two months later. Those who choose Moderna for a booster, even if their first dose was from another brand, should receive the authorized half dose, the centers noted.
