President Joe Biden said he and his wife will get a Covid-19 booster jab, following their first two doses in December.
The president told ABC’s Good Morning America that it was “past time” for him to get a booster.
US health officials announced recommendations that Americans who received the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine get a booster jab eight months after their second dose.
US health officials say it is “very clear” the vaccines’ protection against infections wanes over time.
They announced plans to dispense Covid-19 booster jabs to all Americans to shore up their protection against the surging delta variant.
The doses could begin the week of September 20.
