Who can get a COVID-19 vaccine booster?
The CDC recommends a COVID-19 booster if you are:
• Age 18 or older and you received the Janssen-Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago
• Age 18 or older and you received both required doses of the Moderna vaccine at least five months ago (your booster will be a one-half dose)
• Age 12 or older and you received both required doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at least five months ago (the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the only vaccine and booster authorized for children and teens ages 12–17)
• The CDC recommends that you get vaccinated and boosted even if you previously had COVID-19 infection. Before getting a shot, be sure you have followed isolation and quarantine guidelines so you do not infect others, and discuss your COVID-19 history with the medical team.
