...On October 14, an advisory panel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration unanimously voted to authorize a third dose of Moderna's mRNA vaccine for select groups. The groups include people age 65 and older as well as 18- to 64-year-olds who have underlying conditions that put them at higher risk for severe disease, or who live or work in conditions that put them at high risk of exposure or complications from falling ill.

An advisory panel for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is set to meet October 21 to discuss which groups should get the additional shots. The FDA is expected this week to grant emergency use authorization for the boosters.
