An expert panel of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is also in favor of Corona booster shots after vaccination with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. People vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson should be able to get a booster at least two months after their previous vaccine dose, the panel ruled on Friday (Oct. 15). The panel’s recommendations are not binding, but typically the FDA follows them. In this case, it will also still consider whether people vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson could potentially get a booster shot with Biontech/Pfizer or Moderna. The panel had previously recommended booster vaccinations for the elderly and at-risk groups with the Biontech/Pfizer and Moderna agents. The boosters with the Biontech/Pfizer agent have also already been officially approved and started in the US.

Travel restrictions
Meanwhile, the U.S. is lifting travel restrictions for fully vaccinated foreign nationals at land borders and for air travel beginning Nov. 8. A White House official said Friday (10/15). Those entering by air will be required to show proof of vaccination and a recent negative COVID-19 test before boarding. The negative test is not required for other entries.
About 43,000 people in England may have inadvertently received negative Corona test results because of a laboratory error. The Health Security Agency said Friday (Oct. 15) that the tests had been suspended at a laboratory in the city of Wolverhampton. It said a total of about 400,000 tests had been evaluated there. “The vast majority of these will have been negative results, but an estimated 43,000 people may have received a false negative PCR test result between Sept. 8 and Oct. 12, mainly in southwest England,” the agency stressed. It launched an investigation.
