Brown greenlights COVID-19 booster shots for all adults

Following recommendations from the FDA, CDC, and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup, Oregon Governor Kate Brown gave the go-ahead to open eligibility for booster shots to all adults.

People ages 18 and up and who received their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine six months prior or two months prior for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are now eligible for a booster shot starting Saturday. 

Booster shots do not have to be from the same manufacturer of a person’s original vaccine, the OHA said.
