Please Note: There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. 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.
Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot
The PFIZER or MODERNA booster vaccine is available to people who are:
- CDC recommends that the following groups should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine at least 6 months after completing their primary series (i.e., the first 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine):
- people aged 65 years and older
- residents aged 18 years and older in long-term care settings
- people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions
- CDC also recommends that the following groups may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine at least 6 months after completing their primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks:
- people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions
- people aged 18–64 years at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting
- These recommendations only apply to people who previously received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna primary series (i.e., the first 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine).
- People can talk to their healthcare provider about whether getting a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 booster shot is appropriate for them.

Currently, the CDC is recommending third doses of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) for patients who are moderately or severely immunocompromised and are at least 28 days past their second dose. The same brand of vaccine as was received for the first two doses should be given for the third dose. At this time, additional doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine have not been authorized. If you are not sure whether you qualify for a third dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, please consult with your physician.
