(FOX NEWS) – President Joe Biden announced a plan to offer COVID-19 vaccine booster shots beginning the week of September 20.

“The plan is for every adult to get a booster shot eight months after you got your second shot,” Biden said during a COVID briefing Wednesday.

“We will be ready to start this booster program during the week of September 20,” Biden continued.

The announcement comes as speculation has intensified in recent days that the White House was going to start pushing for booster shots for vaccinated Americans, as the highly transmissible Delta variant spreads across the country.

“The data we’ve seen to date suggest a third dose of our vaccine elicits antibody levels that significantly exceed those seen after the two-dose primary schedule. We are pleased to submit these data to the FDA as we continue working together to address the evolving challenges of this pandemic,” said Pfizer chairman and CEO Albert Bourla.
