CDC may update the definition of “Full COVID-19 Vaccination” to three doses.
With the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officially approving more and more vaccines as COVID-19 booster shot, the Biden administration has been actively urging people to get the third dose of vaccine as soon as possible, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Valensky also revealed on the 22nd that the CDC may redefine “complete vaccination” in the future.
In this case, the United States, which requires foreign travelers to be fully vaccinated before entering the United States, may also require travelers to administer a third dose of vaccine in the future.
Wallensky, director of the US CDC, admitted that the United States may redefine “full vaccination” in the future.
According to the Associated Press and other foreign media reports, Rochelle Walensky said that the US FDA has approved a number of authorizations related to the COVID-19 booster. In other words, more and more people will receive the third dose of vaccine in the future. Therefore, the CDC may need to update the definition of “complete vaccination” in the future.
She added that because not everyone is eligible for booster doses, the United States has not yet revised the definition of “complete vaccination.” The CDC currently defines “completely vaccinated” as “have received 2 doses of Pfizer (BNT) or Moderna vaccine, or received 1 dose of Johnson’s vaccine for more than 14 days.” Valensky also encourages eligible people to get booster as soon as possible.
