Booster info

Booster doses of the Pfizer/Comirnaty COVID-19 vaccine are now available for the following populations at least six months after completion of the primary Pfizer series, meaning at least six months after the second dose was administered:

• People 65 years and older or residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot.

• People ages 50 to 64 with certain underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot.

• People ages 18 to 49 with certain underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot based on their individual benefits and risks. The CDC has indicated that this is a determination made by the vaccine recipient, but those eligible are encouraged to talk to their healthcare providers if they have any questions.

• People age 18 and older who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of their job or living in an institutional setting may receive a booster shot based on their individual benefits and risks. The CDC has indicated that this is a determination made by the vaccine recipient.

Moderna and J&J

Booster doses for Moderna or Johnson and Johnson (J&J) have not yet been authorized, but first-, second- or third-dose Moderna and first-dose J&J brands of COVID vaccine are available.
