CDC Expands Eligibility for COVID-19 Vaccine Booster
Single-dose COVID-19 vaccine boosters (to those meeting certain criteria) have been authorized by the FDA and recommended by the CDC in an effort toward keeping people safe against COVID-19. So, you now may be eligible to receive a booster vaccine if you already have completed your COVID-19 vaccine series (6 months since receiving the 2-dose Pfizer or Moderna series, or 2 months since receiving the 1-dose J&J vaccine) and meet CDC eligibility requirements.
To schedule a booster vaccine:
- Confirm that you completed the 2-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series at least 6 months ago, or the 1-dose J&J vaccine at least 2 months ago.
- Confirm that you meet the criteria provided by the CDC.
Ways to Schedule your booster:
Please bring your vaccine card from your first vaccine series to your booster appointment.
Note: If you have not yet received your first COVID-19 vaccine dose, see scheduling options below.
CDC recommendations now allow for mix and match brand vaccine dosing for booster shots for eligible individuals.
