The vaccination booster may well be done with Moderna's serum.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved on Monday the use of the vaccine to administer a booster dose, only for adults, the instance announced on its website.

“The data show that a booster dose […] given 6 to 8 months after the second dose leads to an increase in antibodies in adults whose antibody level has been declining”, we can read.

According to the regulator, this booster dose carries risks "similar" to those of the second injection.

On October 6, the High Authority for Health (HAS) had recommended the use of the Pfizer vaccine for the booster, recommending to await the opinion of the European Medicines Agency before possibly using the Moderna vaccine.
