EU watchdog backs Moderna booster for over-18s

The EU’s drug watchdog approves booster doses of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for all people aged 18 and over, amid concerns that protection levels dip after initial shots.

Spikevax is the second booster to be given the green light after Pfizer/Biontech’s vaccine, which received the green light earlier this month.

“Data showed that a third dose of Spikevax given six-to-eight months after the second dose led to a rise in antibody levels in adults whose antibody levels were waning,” the European Medicines Agency says.
