Pfizer Booster for High-Risk Workers

In a statement released earlier this month, the CDC said that high risk of occupational exposure, such as healthcare workers, may receive the Pfizer booster shot at least 6 months after the two-dose primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks. The agency’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) had previously voted 6-9 against recommending a booster in this population.
