THURSDAY, September 23, 2021 (CNN) — CDC vaccine advisers endorsed giving booster doses of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine to people 65 and older, long-term care facility residents and people with underlying conditions.
Vaccine advisers to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention argued long and hard Thursday before recommending booster shots for some Americans age 18 and older who got Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine.
The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted easily to recommend booster doses of Pfizer’s vaccine to people 65 and older who had their first two Pfizer doses six months ago or longer.

Op-Ed by Dr. Shieva Ghofrany, MD OBGYN
‘When my periods started increasing in pain, I could have chalked it up to my long history with endometriosis, a condition that rarely transforms into malignancy. Instead, I heeded the advice of a dear colleague, who told me to do what I tell my patients to do—I investigated it. It turned out to be stage-two ovarian cancer.
That was just over five years ago. Today, I am completely healthy.’
