COVID-19 Vaccine Booster

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized booster shots and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued recommendations:

  • Adults 18 years and older for the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines should receive the booster at least 6 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series.
  • Also, teens 16-17 years old can get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster.
  • For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.


If You Received Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna

If you are 18 years or older you may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot, the CDC says. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.


If You Received Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen

If you are 18 years or older you may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot, the CDC says. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
