All adults in the U.S. ages 18 years and older are now eligible to receive Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID vaccine boosters.
If You Received Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines
⇒ Adults ages 50 years and older
People ages 50 years and older should get a booster shot. The risk of severe illness from COVID-19 increases with age and can also increase for adults of any age with underlying medical conditions.
⇒ Long-term care setting residents ages 18 years and older
Residents ages 18 years and older of long-term care settings should get a booster shot. Because residents in long-term care settings live closely together in group settings and are often older adults with underlying medical conditions, they are at increased risk of infection and severe illness from COVID-19.
⇒ Other people who are age 18 years and older
People who are ages 18 years and older may get a booster shot based on their individual risks and benefits. This recommendation may change in the future as more data become available.
All people ages 18 years and older who received a J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least 2 months ago should get a booster shot, for a total of two shots. A single dose of the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine has lower vaccine effectiveness compared to two doses.
