WASHINGTON (Reuters) – At least 400,000 people have received booster shots of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine after U.S. health regulators cleared the shots on Friday for people aged 65 and older, those with underlying medical conditions or in high-risk jobs, the White House said on Tuesday.

Jeff Zients from the White House COVID-19 team told journalists at a briefing that more than 400,000 Americans were given the booster vaccine this weekend. More than 1,000,000 people are scheduled to get their shots in pharmacies within the next week.
