What You Need To Know

COVID-19 vaccine boosters can further enhance or restore protection that might have decreased over time after your primary series vaccination.

People are protected best from severe COVID-19 illness when they stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines, which includes getting all recommended boosters when eligible.

It is never too late to get the added protection offered by a COVID-19 booster.

Who Should Get A Booster?

The CDC now recommends that children ages 5 through 11 years should receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination series.

In addition, the CDC recommends that those 12 and older who are immunocompromised, and those 50 and older, should receive a second booster dose at least 4 months after their first.  

Use this tool from the CDC to determine when or if you (or your child) can get one or more COVID-19 booster.
