(Washington, DC) -- The FDA is authorizing coronavirus booster shots for all adults from Pfizer and Moderna.  

The move by regulators is just one step in the process needed to get shots into arms. The CDC still must have its say.  

Right now, folks are eligible for a Moderna or Pfizer booster if they meet certain categories. That includes individuals who are 65 and older or those 18 and older who have underlying medical conditions.  

The booster can be given at least six months after somebody gets their second shot.
