On Sunday, former FDA head and current Pfizer board member Dr. Scott Gottlieb appeared on “Face the Nation” with Margaret Brennan to discuss COVID-19 vaccination, as well as ongoing mandate efforts.
During the segment, following a broader discussion about booster shots, Brennan asked Gottlieb if the CDC should define “fully vaccinated” as those who have had COVID booster shots.
“You’ve already seen governors in Connecticut and New Mexico say three doses is fully vaccinated,” Brennan stated. “Should the CDC say you need a booster to be considered fully vaccinated?”
Gottlieb replied that he believes “at some point they’re going to, but not this year.”
I think eventually this will be considered a three dose vaccine, but I would be hard pressed to believe CDC is going to make that recommendation any time soon, in part because of this debate about whether or not younger people who are at less risk should be receiving that third dose, in states where governors are looking to do this, and I think some local communities will do it. Some businesses are probably going to do it quite soon. I think in cases where entities are going to mandate three doses for people who are six months out from the second dose, they’re doing that because they’re using the vaccine as a way to control transmission and try to end this pandemic.
