Extra dose of Covid vaccine for people with weak immune systems

“The country has entered yet another wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) is especially cognisant that immunocompromised people are particularly at risk for severe disease,” said acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock in a statement.
