STORY AT-A-GLANCE
The U.S. government is rolling out a new COVID shot this fall that is recommended for all people, including those who have not taken the initial series
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has “approved” the reformulated shots by Pfizer and Moderna for individuals 12 years of age and older, and “authorized” them under emergency use for children between the ages of 6 months and 11 years
The new shots are formulated to include a single mRNA corresponding to the Omicron variant XBB.1.5., the dominant variant in the U.S. for most of 2023, but which has since been replaced by other variants
The FDA anticipates the COVID jab will be updated once a year going forward, just like the seasonal flu vaccine
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has denounced mask and vaccine mandates, saying any renewal of such federal mandates will not be enforced in Florida, now or in the future
