Moderna Inc on Tuesday said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration should authorize booster doses of its COVID-19 vaccine in fully vaccinated older adults and other high-risk individuals.
The company said its data supports the public health benefit of a booster dose of its vaccine to restore immune response, while reducing the number of "breakthrough" infections in fully-vaccinated adults.
Moderna's comments were released in briefing documents ahead of a Thursday meeting of the FDA's outside expert advisers to discuss the booster dose.
