Vaccine Schedules

The current booster recommendations are:

The following groups are eligible for a 1st booster shot:

  • individuals 5  to 17 years of age who have completed a primary series of a mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer) and it has been at least 5 months since completion of primary series
  • individuals 18 years of age and older who have completed primary series of a mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) and it has been at least 5 months since completion of primary series
  • individuals 18 years of age and older who have had a primary dose of Janssen COVID-19 vaccine and it has been at least 2 months and you would like a mRNA booster

The following groups are eligible for a 2nd booster shot:

  • individuals 50 years of age and older who have received a first booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine and it has been at least 4 months since first booster dose

Mixing & Matching (heterologous series): Both the FDA and CDC support adults to receive a booster dose that is a different vaccine type than they originally received for their primary series if they choose. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
