Was the CDC director right when she expanded scope of COVID-19 booster vaccine effort?

The director of the CDC, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, has approved COVID-19 booster shots for those over 65 and for nursing home residents and those ages 50 to 64 who have risky underlying health problems, as recommended by a panel of health advisers.
