'We will not boost our way out of this pandemic,' CDC director says as 70 million eligible Americans remain unvaccinated

Three-quarters of eligible Americans have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and some are now able to receive an additional booster shot. But the virus still poses a great threat to more than 70 million eligible people who remain unvaccinated.

"The most vulnerable are those unvaccinated," Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday.

The CDC on Friday approved a third shot of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine to an expanded group of Americans.

"Starting today, if you are six months out from your last dose of the Pfizer vaccine, you are eligible for a booster if you fall into one of three high-risk groups," US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said during a briefing.
