Who Can Get Vaccinated

All people ages 6 months and older can get a safe, effective and free COVID-19 vaccine. People can get vaccinated through County and State-run sites, pharmacies and other healthcare systems.

 

Boosters

A booster dose is recommended for everyone ages 5 years and older for added protection. Adults ages 18 and older may choose any brand of vaccine for their booster. People ages 5-17 can only get Pfizer for their booster. People at higher risk, including people ages 50 years and older, should get a second booster dose. Click here to learn more about booster doses.

First Booster Doses

  • Ages 5-17: A Pfizer booster is available to people who received their second dose of Pfizer at least 5 months ago.

  • Ages 18+: People ages 18 and older can get a booster dose of their choice if the minimum time has passed since completing their primary vaccine series:

    • Pfizer or Moderna: Booster available to people who received their second dose at least 5 months ago.

    • Johnson & Johnson: Booster available to people who receivedtheir  single dose at least 2 months ago. It is recommended that if you received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you strongly consider a Pfizer or Moderna booster.   

Second Booster Doses

  • Ages 50+: People ages 50 years and older should get a second booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna four months after their first booster dose.

Doses for People Who Are Immunocompromised

People who are immunocompromised are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 and should get additional doses as part of their primary series. After completing the primary series, people who are immunocompromised should follow these recommendations:

  • People 18 and older who got the Moderna vaccine and people 12 and older who have had the Pfizer vaccine: Get a third dose at least 28 days after second dose to complete the initial series. Get a booster (fourth dose) at least three months later and a second booster (fifth dose) at least four months after the first booster.

  • Children ages 5-11: Get a third dose at least 28 days after second dose to complete the initial series.

  • People who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine: Get an mRNA dose (Pfizer or Moderna) at least 28 days after first shot, followed by a third dose at least two months later.
