COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters Now Available to All Adults

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. 

If You Received J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine

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.
