LA County preparing to offer more COVID-19 booster shots

Los Angeles County health officials were gearing up to offer more COVID-19 vaccine booster shots on Friday, October 15, with federal approvals Johnson & Johnson and Moderna moving for additional doses of vaccination.

A US Food and Drug Administration advisory panel Friday recommended a booster dose of the J&J vaccine for adults to be administered at least two months after receiving the initial shot. The panel on Thursday recommended a booster for the Moderna vaccine, which is given at least six months after a person has received a second two-dose regimen.

Public Health Department officials have insisted that the county is well equipped to begin administering booster doses once final federal approval is received, although they continued to stress the need for unvaccinated people for their first dose. .

“We can expect a booster option in the near future from all COVID-19 vaccines available in the country,” County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a statement Friday. “In the near future, we expect millions more LA County residents to qualify for a booster. For those who are older, have underlying health conditions, or are at high risk of exposure to a workplace, please be eligible. Plan to get your booster after. This will allow your immune system to respond more effectively to the virus. As we prepare for cold weather and the holidays, the first, second or third dose of a COVID vaccine Getting through should be very high on our list.”
