    Boosters

    The FDA and CDC have authorized COVID-19 boosters for Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson recipients who meet the below criteria. See below for information on additional doses for moderate to severely immunocompomised individuals. What’s the difference between a booster and an additional dose?

     

    Pfizer:

    Boosters can be administered at least 5 months after the 2nd dose of an initial series of Pfizer for individuals 12 years or older. Individuals 12-17 are only eligible for a Pfizer booster dose (no mixing and matching).  Online scheduling for booster doses for individuals 12-15 coming soon.

     

    Moderna:

    Boosters can be administered at least 5 months after the 2nd dose of initial series of Moderna or individuals 18 years or older. Moderna boosters will be administered at a half-dose volume compared to the initial series.

     

    Johnson & Johnson/Janssen:

    Boosters can be administered at least 2 months after the initial Johnson & Johnson/Janssen shot was administered for anyone age 18+. mRNA boosters (Pfizer or Moderna) are recommended over an additional dose of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen.

     

    Can I choose a different vaccine for a booster (mix & match):

    The CDC recommends a mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine for your booster. Currently you can schedule a booster for the same vaccine you received for your initial series. If a different one is preferred, please talk to your pharmacist at the time of your appointment. Individuals 12-17 may only get a Pfizer booster. Online scheduling for booster doses for individuals 12-15 coming soon.
