In case you haven’t seen the headlines: the Food and Drug Administration has just approved a third COVID-19 shot (Pfizer and Moderna) for organ transplant recipients! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to give its own approval very soon—as in, maybe today (August 13). That paves the way for physicians to hurry up and order shots for immuno-compromised folks, like my son, who are fully vaccinated but still not protected. Granted, there’s still no guarantee that even a third shot will provide adequate protection against the virus for some people with weakened immune systems, but study results are encouraging. We can hope.
