Reportedly, Walmart Inc. (WMT) and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (WBA) have started to administer COVID-19 booster shots from Johnson & Johnson and Moderna Inc., in addition to the previously authorized Pfizer-BioNTech booster. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said citizens can choose a different shot from their original vaccination as a booster.
U.S. health regulators have recommended a second dose of J&J’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine for 18-year olds and above who received the first shot at least 2 months earlier. The third shot of Moderna’s two-dose vaccine was recommended six months after the second dose for people aged at least 65 and also for those at high risk of severe disease and exposure to the virus through their jobs.
CVS Health Corp informed that booster shots of Moderna’s vaccine were available at select stores, but not J&J’s. Earlier, in August, the company stopped providing J&J shots at its pharmacies. U.S. pharmacy chains including Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS began administering booster doses of Pfizer/BioNTech at their stores on Sept. 24.
