"President Joe Biden said U.S. regulators are looking at administering Covid-19 booster shots five months after people finish their primary immunizations, moving up the expected timetable for a third shot by about three months.

Biden, who was speaking with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Friday, said health officials were considering following that country's lead on boosters.

"We're considering the advice you've given that we should start earlier," Biden said, adding that officials are debating whether the timeline should be shorter. "Should it be as little as five months and that's being discussed."

1. That's what Israel has been doing. Five month.

They are reporting good results. Since we started vaccinating in December, it's over five months for some people already.

4. Finally

dragging the CDC from constantly being behind the curve. The breakthrough numbers are climbing. Whether it's a declining efficacy of the vaccines or that Delta is the Hulk, or a combo of both, we need to get on with it, and not just wait for the hospitalization and death rates to continue climbing.

6. My feelings exactly.

Israel is giving it at 5 months. 8 months seems too long, especially for people with various health conditions.

I don't care. I do not want the Ronas.

17. We got our original shots thru our Costco pharmacy. I've seen signs up all over here about COVID

vaccines available. I don't care for Walgreens but most grocery stores have a pharmacy. We were going to go on Wednesday as that was our 6 month date. I got pretty sick after number 2, as I have a compromised immune system. I ended up getting an outbreak of shingles the third day after the shot so the vaccine really challenged my immune system. Also ran a pretty good fever for like a week.

22. Thanks

Did they know you were getting a booster? Do you now if another regular shot is the same as a booster?

24. Too my knowledge, the third shot is the same as the first two. It's only called a booster as you

are supposed to have been fully vaccinated prior to this shot. So it's boosting the first two doses.

28. Yes, it's the exact same dose of the same vaccine you previously received.

They want you to stick with the same vaccine you already got.

13. Does anyone know where to get a booster?

My state health department says they're only giving boosters to immune compromised people. I can't find anything at FEMA.

15. The boosters so far have only been approved for immuno compromised.

They haven't yet been approved for everybody.

23. Thank you

I hope they move it up. I guess I can wait for September 20. That's almost exactly 6 months for me. I rarely go places, and this area isn't a hot spot.

27. CDC should have included more conditions

that are high risk for covid complications as eligible for boosters now.

20. Pharmacies.

I wonít lie to get one, but it is an honor system right now. So itís a personal judgement call, basically.

I called mine to inquire of the status.
