NOTE: THE CDC RECOMMENDS INDIVIDUALS TO RECEIVE AN mRNA COVID-19 VACCINE (PFIZER/MODERNA).

PDFs available in English and Spanish.

Everyone age 12 and above are now eligible to receive a booster shot (Pfizer-BioNTech/Cormirnaty is the only vaccine/booster approved for use in individuals under age 18). Booster shots are recommended to be administered 5 months after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty or the Moderna vaccine, and 2 months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine. The CDC endorsed updated recommendations made by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for the prevention of COVID-19, expressing a clinical preference for individuals to receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine over Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.

Eligible individuals aged 18 and older may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for 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. Eligible individuals aged 12 – 17 are approved to get the Pfizer booster.
