Over half of practicing U.S. doctors are prepared to recommend a second COVID-19 booster shot for eligible patients, even though only 36 percent of doctors believe that current evidence supports that fourth dose, a recent survey shows.

Medscape polling shows that 56 percent of 1,636 practicing doctors who believe in the COVID-19 vaccine support a second vaccine booster for certain groups of people, while 17 percent said they would not recommend it, and 27 percent were unsure as of April 4–13, 2022, when data were collected.
