Recommendations for the COVID Booster Shots

There are now booster recommendations for all 3 COVID vaccines available in the U.S. Now that the booster shots are FDA approved, who exactly is eligible to receive one?

  • Those who received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine over 6 months ago and who fall into one of the following categories:
    • 65 years and older
      • Age 18 or older who work in high risk settings (ie healthcare, schools, grocery store workers, etc)
      • Age 18 or older with underlying medical conditions (Diabetes, Heart disease, Obesity, etc)
      • Age 18 or older who live in long-term care facilities (nursing homes, care homes, etc)
  • For those who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, booster shots are recommended for those who are 18 or older and were vaccinated over 2 months ago.

Let’s just say you weren’t too happy with the effectiveness of the J&J vaccine. Well the CDC recommendations now allow for choosing a different COVID vaccine from the one that you had previously.  So if you had the Moderna vaccine over 6 months ago, it is fine if you end up getting the Pfizer booster. Most importantly, all the data continues to show that all 3 vaccines are highly effective at reducing the risk of hospitalization or death from COVID-19. If you’re wanting to find out where to get a booster shot,  just go to You just type in your zip code and it will tell you all of the locations in your area that are giving the vaccines.
