Update on Booster Shots 

Everyone 12 years and older is recommended to get a booster dose for the best protection against COVID-19 and circulating variants. Booster doses are strongly recommended for people who are at the greatest risk for severe disease, such as people who live in long-term care settings.

You should get your COVID-19 booster dose:

  • At least 2 months after a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

  • At least 5 months* after your second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna primary vaccine series.

*Individuals 12 years or older who are moderately to severely immunocompromised should get a booster dose:

  • Three months after third (additional) dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine - for a total of four doses.

  • Two months after second (additional) dose if the first dose was a Johnson & Johnson vaccine - for a total of three doses.

The CDC recommends people receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (like Pfizer or Moderna) over Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine in most situations. Currently, people 12-17 years old can only get a Pfizer booster dose. Children ages 11 years and younger are currently not authorized to receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.
