If you are making your list of what you want from Santa this year, you can stop.

The State of California already knows what you want. A booster shot of Covid-19. 

Which is why the state has ended the confusion about who is eligible to get the booster and now simply says every adult can get the booster shot.

You can get the Moderna or Pfizer booster if has been 6 months since your last Covid-19 vaccine.  You can get the Johnson and Johnson booster Covid-19 vaccine 2 months after you received your last J & J vaccine.

Now, the federal government, the CDC, has a different view of things.

It says boosters should only be available for people 65 and older, and for  people with chronic health issues, or people who work in high-risk/high-exposure industries. 

The World Health Organization, the W H O, is calling on the United States to wait until at least January 2022 before giving out booster Covid-19 vaccines, stating more than 57 million people around the world still have not gotten even 1 Covid-19 vaccine.
