Autoimmune Association Releases Statement on EUA for COVID-19 Booster Doses

DETROIT – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), expanded the emergency use authorizations (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to allow certain people with compromised immune systems to receive a third “booster” dose on Thursday, August 12, 2021. Given that studies have shown people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a serious case of COVID-19 if contracted, coupled with the rise of the Delta variant, Autoimmune Association recommends that any person living with an autoimmune disease contact their physician immediately to discuss an additional booster. Read the full statement from the CDC here.
