CDC group weighs Covid booster shots for immunocompromised people at higher risk of breakthrough infections

Immunosuppressed people represent 44% of hospitalized Covid breakthrough cases even though they make up about 2.7% of the U.S. adult population, according to the agency.

They are also more likely to become seriously ill from Covid, the agency said, and are at a higher risk of transmitting the virus to family and friends.
