The CDC’s new director, Dr. Mandy Cohen, teased incoming guidance recommending annual COVID-19 booster shots in a Thursday interview with Spectrum News.
Dr. Mandy Cohen alluded to annual COVID-19 vaccination recommendations to be announced in early September by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“We’re just on the precipice of that, so I don’t want to get ahead of where our scientists are here and doing that evaluation work, but yes we anticipate that COVID will become similar to flu shots, where it is going to be you get your annual flu shot and you get your annual COVID shot,” Cohen said. “We’re not quite there yet, but stay tuned. I think within the next couple of weeks, month we’re going to hear more from our experts on COVID shots.”
