THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The EU’s drug watchdog expects to decide in early October whether to approve booster doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine for people over the age of 16, a senior official says today.

The European Medicines Agency is also set to rule at the same time on additional doses of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for immunocompromised people, its head of vaccine strategy Marco Cavaleri tells a press conference.
