Booster?

Who, What and When?

• 3rd Dose – is a FULL dose of vaccine,
given to individuals who are significantly
immunocompromised, given at least 28 days after
the second dose.
 CDC recommends that people with moderately
to severely compromised immune systems
(i.e. organ transplant, currently have cancer,
HIV/AIDS etc.) receive a third dose of the SAME
manufacturer as the first two doses.
• Booster – is a HALF dose of vaccine, given 6 months
after the second dose, recommended for individuals
65+ and older, and to those 18-64 who have
underlying medical conditions and/or work or live in
high risk situations. The booster is given 6 months
after completion of the vaccine series for Moderna &
Pfizer. For J&J, the booster is recommended at least
2 months after their 1st/only dose.

• Mix and Match – Officials have authorized “mixing
and matching” COVID-19 vaccine boosters, meaning
anybody who is eligible to get a booster shot can
get any of the three currently authorized or approved
vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson) –
regardless of which vaccine they received for their
primary series. Talk to your health care provider
about your risk, the need for a booster dose, and any
questions about mixing and matching doses.
