Third Doses

A third dose of COVID-19 vaccine may be given to people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems. This is different from a booster dose (see below). Talk to your healthcare provider to find out if you may need a third dose.

Booster Doses

Boosters are now recommended for the following groups:

  • Those who received their second dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months ago and: are 65 and older; reside in a long-term-care facility; or are 50-64 with underlying medical conditions, increased risk of social inequities, or disabilities.
  • Those 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 2 months ago.

Anyone qualifying for a booster may receive any of the FDA-approved vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson). Individuals may receive either the same or a different brand of COVID-19 vaccine, depending on advice from a healthcare provider, individual preference, availability or convenience.

People age 18-64 who received their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna at least 6 months ago and have an underlying medical condition(s) or are at risk of increased SARS-CoV-2 virus exposure or transmission because of where they work or live may also get a booster.

A booster dose is not recommended for other fully vaccinated individuals at this time.
