Americans may need yearly shots to protect against Covid-19

A pharmacy in Grand Central Terminal advertises the Covid-19 vaccine in December of 2021 in New York City.

Americans may need to get a single Covid-19 vaccination every year, federal health officials said Tuesday, making clear that the country will be living with the coronavirus for the foreseeable future.

"This week marks an important shift in our fight against the virus," said Dr. Ashish Jha, who is leading the White House Covid-19 Response Team. "It marks our ability to make Covid vaccines a more routine part of our lives as we continue to drive down serious illness and deaths and protect Americans heading into the fall and winter."
