EU Drug Watchdog Backs Moderna Booster For All Over-18s

The approval comes amid concerns that protection levels dip after initial jabs.
NDTV:

The EU's drug watchdog on Monday approved booster doses of Moderna's Covid vaccine for all over-18s, amid concerns that protection levels dip after initial jabs.

Spikevax is the second booster to be given the green light after Pfizer/Biontech's Comirnaty jab earlier this month.

"Data showed that a third dose of Spikevax given six to eight months after the second dose led to a rise in antibody levels in adults whose antibody levels were waning," the European Medicines Agency said.

Public health bodies within the 27-member bloc "may issue official recommendations on the use of booster doses, taking into account the local epidemiological situation", the Amsterdam-based EMA said.

It added that current data showed a pattern of side effects similar to that which followed a second dose of Spikevax.

"The risk of inflammatory heart conditions and other very rare side effects after a booster is being carefully monitored."
