CDC Simplifies COVID-19 Vaccine Recommendations

Following recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulatory action, CDC has taken steps to simplify COVID-19 vaccine recommendations and allow more flexibility for people at higher risk who want the option of added protection from additional COVID-19 vaccine doses.
