WASHINGTON (WABC) -- New boosters could be coming to millions of Americans - starting in September.

The White House confirms that an updated vaccine will be offered, but with a slightly different formula.

The shots are expected to include extra protection from the Omicron sub-variants.

Right now, only people over the age of 50 are eligible for a second booster shot. That too will likely change come September.
