Picture - Boosters for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients weren’t up for debate during a C.D.C. panel.

A committee of scientific advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted on Thursday to recommend booster doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine to many Americans who were fully inoculated with the same vaccine.The panel advised that those booster shots go to older Americans and people with certain medical conditions, but excluded those at risk because of their jobs.

But the panel was not asked to judge whether people who received the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines should receive Pfizer boosters. The Food and Drug Administration is reviewing data for a Moderna booster, but has not received an application from Johnson & Johnson for a booster of its vaccine.

Several experts nevertheless supported a mix-and-match strategy, and signaled that they would revisit the issue as new data emerge.
