SUMMARY: The Biden administration plans to launch a fall vaccination campaign that includes updated COVID-19 boosters, the annual flu shot, and the newly approved RSV vaccine. Officials from the CDC and FDA have discussed the plans, but did not disclose the target number of Americans for the boosters. The administration aims to provide access to uninsured and underinsured individuals for the booster once it is approved. The updated vaccines show promise against certain variants, but more data is needed. The ACIP plans to meet quickly to make recommendations for clinicians once the FDA approves the updated vaccines. The administration will prioritize getting the updated COVID-19 vaccine to nursing homes and long-term care facilities. The vaccines for individuals aged 12 and older will be fully licensed this fall, while those for individuals 11 and younger will still be under emergency use authorization. Some of the updated vaccines may have a cost unlike during the pandemic when they were free. Testing and treatments will continue to be available during the upcoming cold and flu season. COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths have increased recently, but remain lower compared to the peak of the pandemic.
