. An FDA committee votes to roll out a new COVID vaccination strategy « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NPR – The recommendation is that future COVID-19 vaccines should be interchangeable: no matter whether you’re getting your first dose or a booster, the vaccines would all have the same formulation targeting the same viral strain or strains, regardless of the manufacturer. The vote was unanimous: 21-0. In addition, the committee considered (but didn’t vote on) proposals to have an annual COVID vaccination schedule, much like the U.S. has for the flu. If this happens, most people would be advised to get just one shot every fall with a new vaccine that’s probably been re-jiggered to try to match whatever variant is predicted to be spreading each winter.
