NEW YORK (WABC) -- The CDC Advisory Committee will meet this week to discuss booster shots, including who should get one and when.

The meeting comes after an FDA advisory panel met last week, okaying the Pfizer booster for those 65 and older and anyone with high risk of severe COVID.

The panel stopped short of recommending the booster for the general public.

Dr. Anthony Fauci defended the decision, saying that recommendations could change as more data becomes available.
