Coronavirus in Oregon: 1,090 new cases, 28 deaths as feds recommend boosters for all adults – oregonlive.com

Oregonians 18 and older could be allowed to get COVID-19 Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccine booster shots as early as Saturday.

A key federal panel Friday recommended that all adults who got either of the two vaccines six or more months earlier be allowed to get a booster. A scientific panel working on behalf of western states will review the recommendation Friday, the last step before Oregon officials authorize the shots. The panel is almost certain to follow suit and the Oregon Health Authority is expected to issue policy based on the groups decision Saturday.

We ask for patience as vaccine providers ramp up to administer boosters, the health authoritys public health director Rachael Banks said in a statement.
