Top Tips to Stay Safe:
- Get yourself and your children vaccinated and boosted as soon as eligible.
- Wear a mask to reduce your risk of infection.
- Stay home if you are feeling sick and get tested as soon as possible.
- Watch your distance around others, especially around young children who are not yet able to get vaccinated.
- If you want to be social, consider well-ventilated places to hang out or choose times or locations that are less crowded.
- If you are going to see someone who is at higher risk, consider getting tested or reducing exposure for a few days before seeing them.
- Always be kind: remember that everyone's plans may look different, but people are doing their best.
Are second rounds of booster shots available?
The CDC now recommends a second booster shot for people over 50, for those who are immune-compromised, and for those who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. It must be at least 4 months since you got your first booster.
Am I eligible to receive a booster or an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?
Booster and Additional doses of the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Moderna vaccine brands have different ages, eligibility, and timing requirements. For more information, see the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility chart.
Boosters shots for ages 5-11:
- A Booster dose is not available for this age group.
- An additional dose of the Pfizer vaccine is available for immunocompromised patients age 5+ who received their 2nd dose of Pfizer at least 28 days ago.
Boosters shots for ages 12-17:
- A Booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine is available to people who received their 2nd dose of Pfizer at least 5 months ago or 3 months ago if immunocompromised.
- A 2nd Booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine is available to certain immunocompromised people who received their 1st Booster at least 4 months ago.
- An Additional dose of Pfizer is available for immunocompromised patients who received their 2nd dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least 28 days ago.
Boosters shots for ages 18+:
People in this age group can receive a Booster dose of their choice if the minimum time has passed since completing their primary vaccine series:
- Pfizer - Received 2nd dose at least 5 months ago, or 3 months ago if immunocompromised
- Moderna - Received 2nd dose at least 5 months ago, or 3 months ago if immunocompromised
- Johnson & Johnson - Received a single dose at least 2 months ago, or an additional dose of Pfizer/Moderna at least 2 months ago
Boosters shots for ages 50+:
- A 2nd Booster dose is available to all people age 50+ who received their last dose at least 4 months ago.
- NOTE: A Booster dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine is recommended by the CDC over Johnson & Johnson.
Can I mix and match vaccines?
Yes, after you complete your first vaccination series. In the United States, that means:
- Two shots of the Pfizer vaccine, or
- Two shots of the Moderna vaccine, or
- One shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine
Then you may choose another vaccine to receive as a booster dose. Some people may prefer the vaccine they got before, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC recommendations now allow for this type of mix-and-match dosing for booster doses.
A Pfizer or Moderna booster is strongly advised for those who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
