“The NBA is officially recommending COVID-19 booster shots for its players, coaches and referees.

The league told these three groups on Sunday that they should receive a coronavirus vaccine booster shot — especially if they first received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, according to The Associated Press.

Those who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than two months ago, the league and the players association said, should get a booster shot of their choice. Those who received full doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines more than six months ago should receive a booster.

The NBA also implemented a new Dec. 1 deadline for certain fully vaccinated personnel. If players, coaches or officials don’t receive a booster shot by that date, depending on when the initial vaccine was administered, they will be required to game-day testing once again.”
