Question description

<small>Note: this is a long term question which will not count toward the tournament leaderboard. See the tournament page for details.</small>

On 19 November 2021, FDA authorized COVID-19 boosters for all U.S. adults — these boosters constitute second doses for those who received the Janssen vaccine as their primary vaccination, and they constitute third doses for those who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines as their primary vaccination.

Some have suggested that COVID-19 is now transitioning to a seasonal endemic state and that this might necessitate seasonal yearly boosters.

Will additional COVID-19 booster doses be authorized by FDA for the U.S. adult population before 2023?

This will resolve positively if FDA authorizes additional booster doses for the entire U.S. adult population — this would mean a third dose for those who received the Janssen vaccine as their primary vaccination, and fourth doses for those who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines as their primary vaccination.
