FDA Authorizes Boosters for Moderna and J&J Vaccines

The FDA will also allow people to mix and match vaccine boosters

On Wednesday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized COVID-19 boosters for millions more Americans, giving a green light for third shots to Moderna and Johnson & Johnson recipients.

The FDA also said it will allow people eligible for a booster to mix and match doses. So, no matter which shots you initially received, you can choose your preferred brand for a third shot.
