Additional Doses for immunocompromised people

An additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine may be given to people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems. Immunocompromised children ages 5-11 can receive a third primary series dose of the Pfizer vaccine. 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 for everyone age 5 and older

The CDC recommends that everyone age 5 and older get a booster dose. People who received their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna at least 5 months ago or received their first dose of J&J at least 2 months ago should get a booster. This includes people who are immunocompromised and received a third dose of Pfizer or Moderna. People 5 to 17 years old are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Your third or booster dose does not need to be the same brand as your primary series. (Those under 18 will receive Pfizer.) Boosters are recommended because evidence shows the immune response wanes over time for some people. The goal is to give you optimal protection against COVID-19 infection, severe illness and death. 

A second COVID-19 booster dose for older and immunocompromised people is recommended by the CDC, Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup and the Oregon Health Authority following FDA’s authorization.
 
If you are in these groups and received an initial booster dose at least 4 months ago, you can now get a second booster dose of the two available mRNA vaccines — made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna — to increase your protection against severe COVID-19.
 
Adults who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months ago may now receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna).
