FDA wants to make the COVID vaccine an annual shot like the flu

Published January 24, 2023


Tom Russo spoke to Prevention about the Food and Drug Administration proposing annual COVID-19 booster shots. “There’s some uncertainty if once a year is going to get it done or if our most vulnerable are going to need more than that,” Russo says. “Minimally, this is starting to develop the frame of mind, similar to the flu vaccine, that an annual booster is going to be the order of the day.”
