Additionally, booster shots are an important part of protecting yourself from becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. Boosters are recommended for anyone 5 and older (Pfizer only for ages 12-17). Booster shots are recommended 5 months following the completion of an initial Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series and 2 months following a J&J vaccine.
A second booster is also recommended for those age 50 and older, or 12 and older if moderately to severely immunocompromised, 4 months following the initial booster shot. More information on the recommendations and guidelines can be found HERE. You may receive a booster shot of any of the vaccines, even if you received a different vaccine for your initial series, with the exception of those age 5-17 who may only receive Pfizer. An mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) is recommended for a booster shot.
Upcoming clinics and appointments can be accessed via MyTurn, pharmacies, or healthcare providers (see below for more info).
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has received full approval by the FDA for those age 16 and older and the Moderna vaccine has received full approval for those age 18 and older. Pfizer for ages 5-15 and the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) approval for use in the United States.
Vaccine is now available to anyone age 5 and older (5-17 years Pfizer only, 18 years and older for Moderna & Janssen) based on vaccine availability. Vaccine is being administered primarily at Points of Dispensing (PODs) and at pharmacies and clinics as noted below.
