U.S. drug regulators have given all necessary approval for booster shots of the Moderna and Janssen COVID-19 vaccines.
As early as this Friday, people in the States will be eligible to receive the extra jab.
The Janssen vaccine will be available for around 13 million adults, who got their original jabs two months ago.
And for the Moderna vaccine, more than 39 million fully vaccinated older adults will be able to get the half of the original dose.
