At the same time, as NYT notes, experts continue to argue about the need for additional vaccinations in general.
The US administration is developing a plan to vaccinate some categories of citizens with the third dose of coronavirus drugs from the fall. This was reported on Saturday by The New York Times, citing sources.
At the same time, as the publication notes, experts continue to argue about the need for additional vaccinations in general. It is assumed that the so-called booster doses will first be offered to people living in nursing homes, other representatives of the elderly population, and healthcare workers. The authorities intend to introduce the same vaccines that they received earlier to vulnerable groups. Although the campaign is scheduled to start in October, no specific dates have been set, the newspaper writes.
As The New York Times notes, the new efforts are being made against the background of another wave of the pandemic that has swept the country, throwing back the progress made by the US administration in the fight against the coronavirus. Hospitals in several states, including Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, are filled with patients, most of whom have not been vaccinated.
