Boosters

COVID-19 boosters are currently recommended for certain groups who received the Pfizer vaccine only. 

The CDC recommends that people in the following groups should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 Vaccine at least 6 months after completion of their 2-dose Pfizer series:

  • People ages 65 years and older
  • Adults 18+ living in long-term care settings
  • People ages 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions

People who may receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine booster include:

  • People ages 18–49 with an underlying medical condition
  • People ages 18–64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission due to working or residing in certain settings

The new guidance applies only for those who got the Pfizer vaccine. Mixing vaccine types is not recommended.

Third doses for moderately to severely immunocompromised

Third doses of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines are currently recommended by the CDC for persons who are moderately or severely immunocompromised 28 days after second dose. This additional dose intended to improve immunocompromised people’s response to their initial vaccine series.
