COVID-19 vaccine booster shots: Will you need one?

Booster shots could become available as early as September

The shots could become available as soon as September.

The CEOs of both Pfizer and Moderna, makers of two-shot vaccines, predict that people will be lining up for booster shots. But who will be first in line? And can you convince those who are already vaccine-hesitant to offer their arms for yet another vaccination?
