The governors of Arkansas and West Virginia have announced that all fully vaccinated adults can receive a booster dose of a coronavirus vaccine, joining a growing list of states that are expanding access on their own rather than waiting on federal regulators to reconsider an earlier call reserving the shots for targeted vulnerable populations.
“People have got to get their booster shots – that’s all there is to it,” West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice said during a news conference Monday. “If you’re 18 and above, you can get that shot. And you need to get that booster shot because your level of protection right now is not much at all if you’re six months out.”
