"In a rare move, Director Rochelle Walensky overruled the panel, and said people at risk of COVID infection because of their jobs should also be eligible for a booster."

"As CDC Director, it is my job to recognize where our actions can have the greatest impact. At CDC, we are tasked with analyzing complex, often imperfect data to make concrete recommendations that optimize health. In a pandemic, even with uncertainty, we must take actions that we anticipate will do the greatest good," CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.
