Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Immunocompromised Americans who had a 3rd COVID-19 shot can now get a 4th, CDC says”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Most fully-vaccinated immunocompromised people in the US can now get a fourth COVID-19 shot after their third under new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Adults in the US with moderately or severely weakened immune systems who had vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna can now get a fourth dose six months after their third dose, the CDC said on Tuesday.

The fourth dose can be any COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a list comprising Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, the CDC said. For Moderna, the fourth dose should be halved, it said.

Immunocompromised people that received Johnson & Johnson's single-dose vaccine should get a second dose of an approved vaccine at least two weeks later, but not a third or fourth shot, per CDC guidance.

The guidance doesn't apply to Americans at high risk of COVID-19 who have normal immune systems — these people are eligible for a third shot, a booster, at six months after they're fully vaccinated.
