U.S. regulators said transplant recipients and people with weakened immune systems can get an extra shot of the COVID-19 vaccine to better protect them from the Coronavirus

Davenport, IA – According to the health officials, this announcement applies to millions of Americans who are especially vulnerable because of organ transplants, certain cancers or other disorders.

Officials say that this decision only applies to this high-risk group, which is about 3% of U.S. adults.

According to the health officials, it’s harder for the COVID-19 vaccines to boost the immune system, when it’s suppressed by certain diseases or medications.

Officials say that those people don’t always get the same protection as healthy people.

Note that this is not an opening for booster doses for the general population.
