2. Vaccine Boosters or Additional Doses

Boosters-Updated 01/04/22

CDC recommends COVID-19 boosters for anyone 12 years of age and older who received the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

  • If you received Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine- At least 5 months after completion of 2-dose series.
  •  Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine- At least 6 months after completion of 2-dose series.
  • If you received Johnson & Johnson- at least 2 months after you were vaccinated. 

Eligible individuals 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.
