(AP) - U.S. regulators are extending COVID-19 boosters to Americans who got the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

They also said Wednesday anyone eligible for an extra dose can get a brand different from the one they received initially.

The FDA announcement marks a big step toward expanding the U.S. booster campaign - but it’s not the last word.

The CDC will consult an expert panel later this week before finalizing official recommendations for boosters.
