US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend to inject the fourth dose of Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines to immunocompromised people as CDC reported.

“A person who is moderately or severely immunocompromised and has received two doses of an mRNA vaccine and ≥28 days has elapsed since the second dose, should receive an additional mRNA dose immediately (if Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is used, administer 100µg in 0.5ml), followed ≥6 months later by a single COVID-19 vaccine booster dose (if Moderna vaccine booster is used, administer 50µg in 0.25ml),” the message says.

CDC immunologists note that moderate to severely immunocompromised people can receive a total of four doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

People with immunodeficiency disorders or people taking immunosuppressive drugs or therapy are at increased risk of severe coronavirus. The Covid-19 vaccines currently approved by FDA are not live vaccines and can therefore be safely administered to immunocompromised people.

As it was reported earlier, WHO President Tedros Ghebreyesus said that with a global death rate of almost 50,000 people a week, the coronavirus pandemic is far from over. He called on countries that have already reached the 40% vaccination target, including the G20, to "give way to vaccine supplies" to the international Covax system and the African Vaccination Fund (Avat), set up by the African Union.
