Second boosters

The Centers for Drug Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday authorized second booster doses for the following:

• A second booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to individuals 50 and older at least four months after receipt of a first booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine.

• A second booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to individuals 12 and older with certain kinds of immunocompromise at least four months after receipt of a first booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine. These are people who have undergone solid organ transplantation, or who are living with conditions that are considered to have an equivalent level of immunocompromise.

• A second booster dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may be administered at least four months after the first booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine to individuals 18 years of age and older with the same certain kinds of immunocompromise.
