Advisors vote in favor of J&J booster doses

(CNN) — Vaccine advisers to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously on Friday to recommend a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine at least two months after people receive the first dose.

The FDA Vaccines and Related Biologics Advisory Committee voted 19-0 to recommend the additional dose for all recipients of the J&J Janssen vaccine, ages 18 and older.

They asked to simplify the original question posed by the FDA, which had asked the committee to say whether the data showed that waiting six months or more after receiving the first injection would provide an even stronger immune response.

The next step is for the FDA to consider the advice of the committee. Then the vaccine advisers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be asked to consider it.
